This fall, the HYT Hastroid is dressed in warm, sensual tones, along with a bronze evolution of the casing. An ingenious change to say the least, combining the futuristic nature of Hastroid with the textures of materials reminiscent of the oldest era. A perfect addition to the product.

Hastroid, vintage hunter look

This superb craftsmanship is clearly expressed in the two-material casing design of the new Hastroid Cosmic Hunter with a diameter of 48 mm, a total length of 52.3 mm and a case thickness of 17.2 mm. The originality of this piece lies in the fusion of carbon and titanium coated with PVD bronze treatment and a microbead finish. The advantage of this bronze he galvanic coating is the vintage hunter look with the surprising lightness of Hastroid.

Bronze, as it has been known for thousands of years, is traditionally an alloy of copper and tin, whose color is close to that of gold and generally tends to change due to oxidation. It is not uncommon to To make the new Hastroid Cosmic Hunter timeless, HYT decided to use a stabilizing surface treatment to preserve its bronze color. By correcting its beauty and brightness and using a resolutely contemporary approach without trying to create nostalgia or artificial vintage effects, HYT takes bronze into a new future era.

Offering a beautiful contrasting effect, this case color variant features beige numerals in the cutting-edge material Lumicast®, three-dimensional Super-LumiNova® application to enhance brightness, matt black-finished hands and, of course, A liquid that indicates the flow of time. This black liquid within a very fine borosilicate capillary is the distinguishing and unique feature of HYT-designed mechafluidic timepieces.

Hastroid’s multi-layered middle case is delicately openworked, and the sandwich construction method of the entire watch is water resistant up to 50 meters, with a central protective titanium case protecting the movement, allotted to this new spacecraft. It can handle missions optimally.

Like the flight deck, this watch is covered with a domed sapphire crystal that almost completely obscures the entire dial. Central to the mechafluid mechanism, of course, is the central he fluid system with two “bellows” reservoirs. Its design is unique to HYT creations and enhances the character and feel of the capillaries and power surrounding the dial.
