Elite Traveler Meets HYT Watches CEO Vincent Perriard

Elite Traveler meets Vincent Perriard, CEO and partner at HYT Watches. He explains how the watchmaker’s HYT H1 and H2 collections use liquids to tell the time.

Liquid has never mixed well with watches – until now. HYT’s range combines liquid with mechanics and its H1 model was named best innovative watch at 2012’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève.

HYT Watches CEO and partner Vincent Perriard says: “It’s the principle of when you have Italian cuisine and you put olive oil in. If you put water into your olive oil they will separate. The mechanism of the watch is the power to move the liquids to indicate the time.”
