Geneva Video – HYT Quai du Mont-Blanc

So happy to present you the results from the video project in Geneva.
It reminds me on a cool James Bond trailer, check it out!

Like many great ideas, the inspiration for HYT started with Man contemplating nature.

The Hydro-Mechanical Horologists’s story has evolved over time and near water.
In 2002, the scenery that caught Lucien Vouillamoz’s imagination was that of the Swiss lakes – the ones of Neuchâtel, Bienne and Morat.
In 2014, on the shore of the Léman Lake and facing the mythical Jet d’eau of Geneva, is born the H1 Quai du Mont-Blanc, an homage to our partnership with Montres Prestige, HYT’s first ambassador of the brand in Switzerland, located on Quai du Mont-Blanc.

After indicating the time with a yellow fluid – the brand’s DNA – HYT has taken on a new ‘red fluid’ challenge: the colour of passion, of Geneva and of Switzerland. The liquid adjustement was not as simple as one could think and took eighteen technical months to perfect. Its classical minutes dial preserves the heritage of the traditional haute horlogerie whilst seamlessly integrating the perfection of the high fluid technology. With its proprietary unique caliber, the H1 Quai du Mont-Blanc movement is further enhanced by the beautiful Côte-de-Genève finitions.

Limited edition of 22 pieces, a nod at Geneva, the 22nd Canton of the Swiss Confederation.

Classy afternoon – Cigar Lounge

This afternoon, I had a wonderful walk through an old village in Switzerland, the city is called Lenzburg.
 
My favourite two places there:
 
The castle Schloss Lenzburg
And a really dapper cigar lounge Art Cigar
 
and that’s where we ended up taking pictures for the autumn/fall season.
Some more ideas to combine fashion with cigar smoking, tasty whisky and a brilliant luxury watch from HYT.

Fashion Hint

A very classy version of brown jacket & aubergine trousers.
If I’m deciding to chose a colour, I’m not mixing them up to much.

So in the case I keep brown for the jacket, gloves, bag, belt & also the scarf.
Keep the common thread always in your outfit.

In this case you could combine the jacket also with a dark green, black, grey, yellow (be careful with this, go for a dark yellow).
Cigarre Location

I’m wearing boots, putting my trousers inside.
You can help yourself fixing this with a elastic or similar.

Class hint

Light up your cigar with matches. Always. Lighter is forbidden.
If you have cedarwood available, go for it!

HYT H1 Titanium Bronze

As per Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity, time is the 4th dimension.
The harmony of space & time ends up in this masterpiece from HYT.

Extreme alchemists, HYT’s Hydro-Mechanical Watchmakers have turned utopia into reality
– mixing mechanics and liquid within a wristwatch. While truly addicted to non-conformism,
they have drawn upon the strictest codes in Fine Watchmaking – and felt entirely free to
shatter them!

By achieving the incredible challenge of indicating the time with water, they have not so
much propelled a new UFO into the watchmaking stratosphere, as they have in fact pulverized
all certainties by uniting two worlds that are supposedly diametrically opposed.
Never since the water clocks of the pharaohs, have the laws of gravity been overcome to
transpose this energy in a portable watch. HYT has done it.
