HYT Technologies Part 2: Features and Limitations

Water meter? The human adventure at the origin of the HYT H1 development achieved what seemed to be possible only in theoretical physics. Below is the technical explanation.

The functional principle of the fluid module presents so many problems that it is necessary to create unheard-of craftsmanship and technology, especially in the production of prototypes and the industrialization of watch production as a whole. To get a better grasp of its capabilities, we provide an extraordinary list with all constraints. We also provide the names of those who made the original quasi-philosophical intentions possible.

“The idea behind ‘Back to Clepsydre’ is a real leap forward and more dazzling than a throwback to 17th and 18th century watchmaking. Since many components of the fluid module offer limited reliability when interacting closely, tolerances Bands are less controllable than tolerance bands in traditional watchmaking.

Furthermore, these tolerance zones are consistent. This complexity has nothing to do with traditional quality control as the watchmaking industry understands it”. Vuillamoz made it clear: there are quite a few challenges to deal with and we cannot adopt good practice because no one has ever produced a watch like this before.

How the Fluid Module Works
Before assessing the enormity of the physical co-contraction that must be mastered to make the HYT fluid indicator reliable, it is critical to understand its function. The fluid module consists of a glass capillary connecting two flexible metal containers filled with two immiscible liquids, one colored and the other transparent. When one of the containers is pressed, the compressed liquid enters the capillary, creating a display interface rather than a connection between colored and colorless transparent areas.

Every time the fluid indicator reaches the 6 o’clock position, the display system inevitably returns to its original state when pressure is applied to the first reservoir. The liquid reverses for about a minute before restarting the 12-hour compression cycle.

Since liquids expand with temperature, a thermal compensator—an intermediate device—must be integrated to avoid the ill effects of this physical phenomenon. In fact, when expanded, the liquid can only move in the capillary, thus affecting the accuracy of the displayed time. The thermal compensator (3) acts like a loophole, correcting the position of the liquid in the event of temperature changes.

Problems and Industrialization
The development of the HYT replica fluid module takes place within the framework of early research and innovation. The method is quasi-empirical; observe, design, apply, if decisive, develop it and make it reliable.

HYT thermal compensator

Various problems arising from the development of HYT fluid modules must be reduced and resolved. Furthermore, the interaction between the craftsmanship mastered by the engineer and the craftsmanship mastered by the watchmaker must be found.

The first challenge encountered was the energy balance of the fluid module. The question is how to move the liquid with the small amount of energy that a mechanical watch movement can produce. Since the system acts as a spring, the energy circulates every 12 hours. Therefore, no energy is lost because there is no need to “press” twice, thus losing double the energy produced by the mechanical movement. This is a matter of determining the size of all components in the Fluid Module. Then comes the task of precisely managing the movement of the two fluids. The balance between fluids is particularly critical. In fact, the liquid must be immiscible and have as low an affinity as possible with the glass wall of the capillary. However, polar liquids that can push against the glass walls tend to have an affinity for another liquid. The capillary and the two liquids must push against each other, and the colorant—except miscible with one—must never mix with the second.

Therefore, in order to obtain a good composition of liquid and colorant, many experiments were carried out to make initially incompatible cohabitants. HYT H2 replica

This “fluid management” requires important developments to control velocity and regulate flux. The fluid channel thus undergoes the creation of regions of different diameters, allowing its flow to be regulated during each step of liquid filling, winding, function, etc. There’s also a thermal compensator that manages temperature differences, preventing the liquid from expanding. It is after repeated adjustment of the assembly of the different elements of the fluid module that it is possible to avoid liquid loss. As a comparison, the water resistance level of the fluid module is 10,000 times that of a 100-meter water-resistant watch.

The bridge between physics and watchmaking
Once the main issues are identified and resolved, they must be coordinated. Procedures must be implemented to align the requirements of the engineer with that of the watchmaker.

Therefore, watchmakers use part of the knowledge of engineers to synchronize mechanical and fluid time. Many machines were specially made; for example, there was a device that handled the sensitive and delicate steps of filling a watch. Another example is measurement tools, which help to measure the accuracy of different elements with extremely low tolerances. Glass capillaries and bellows have precise dimensions, measuring a few microns. Lastly, a loop tool is required to simulate the function of each fluid module, followed by mechanical motion.

Therefore, a HYT copy watch is more than just a movement and an additional module. It is the result of an alliance of watchmaking and physics in their most diverse forms such as micromechanics and fluid dynamics. With the H1 and most recently the H2, HYT has entered new territory in time display while creating new technologies and making them reliable.

AUDEMARS PIGUET Royal Oak double balance wheel hollow black ceramic reference. 15416CE Audemars Piguet (Audemars Piguet) launched another very popular, very suitable for “Black Friday”. This time made of black ceramic, the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak double balance wheel hollow black ceramic ref. 15416CE.OO.1225CE.01 is the latest product of Royal Oaks’ “Double Balancier” series, which was first released at SIHH in 2016. The dual balance wheel solves the stability problem by fixing the second balance wheel and the balance wheel spring assembly on the same shaft. This watch is equipped with an off-white hollow dial, with rose gold-plated hour markers and Royal Oak hands with luminous coating, it is a stunning watch. The watch comes with a matching black Royal Oak ceramic bracelet.

The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak double balance wheel hollow black ceramic ref. 15416CE.OO.1225CE.01 is powered by the internal self-winding movement 3132. The movement is composed of 245 parts and 38 jewels. It provides a 45-hour power reserve while oscillating at a frequency of 21,600 vph. The movement has patented innovative technology, involving a complicated manufacturing process, which can improve the precision and stability of the watch. By assembling two balance wheels and two hairsprings on the same shaft, the system can perfectly synchronize oscillations. The 22K rose gold hollow swing pendulum is the icing on the cake. The new member of the Double Balancier series is a specially engraved case back with the words “Royal Oak Double Balancier” engraved on it, which did not appear in any previous version of this model.

AUDEMARS PIGUET Royal Oak automatic winding flying tourbillon REF. 26530. This is the first time ever.

Audemars Piguet is pleased to introduce its first Royal Oak self-winding flying tourbillon. In this case, the manufacturer introduced three 41mm stainless steel, titanium and 18K rose gold benchmarks, all with exquisite dial designs. The Royal Oak Tourbillon made its debut in 1997 for the 25th anniversary of the Royal Oak. This latest movement with flying tourbillon and automatic winding mechanism reinterprets modern classics and brings a new aesthetic to the new decade.

The new Royal Oak self-winding flying tourbillon is another first in the Royal Oak series, showing the applied 24K gold Audemars Piguet signature. It is made of a thin layer of gold and is achieved through a chemical process similar to 3D printing (called current growth). Each letter has a thin link that is almost invisible. Then use the tiny legs to manually fix the signature on the dial. The signature was originally developed to decorate the smooth lacquered dial of Audemars Piguet code 11.59

The all-titanium reference 26530TI.OO.1220TI.01 proposes an innovative dial design. The elegant sandblasted slate gray dial with snails on the periphery is an alternative to Royal Oak’s Tapisserie logo. The gray tone of the dial and the platinum hour markers and hands cleverly echo the flying tourbillon, making it rotate at 6 o’clock.


The stainless steel version reference 26530ST.OO.1220ST.01 is reminiscent of other models in the Royal Oak series, and is decorated with an exquisite smoked blue Tapisserie dial. Its most advanced sunrise pattern originates from the flying tourbillon cage at 6 o’clock. These vibrant blue tones give the flying tourbillon depth and at the same time are the elegant background of platinum hour markers and hands.

The third 18K rose gold model 26530OR.OO.1220OR.01 provides a modern feel. The smoked gray sunburst “Tapisserie” dial, decorated with rose gold hour markers and hands, illuminates the rose gold case and bracelet. A subtle rose gold luster is added to the flying tourbillon cage.

The hand-finished flying tourbillon cage can be seen from the back of the dial and case, and some adjustment components of the watch can be clearly seen so that it can be rotated. The interior and exterior of the Royal Oak self-winding flying tourbillon are meticulously crafted, blending modern design with ancient craftsmanship.

This new model is powered by the Audemars Piguet 2950 movement released in 2019. The movement consists of 270 parts, combining a flying tourbillon and a 22K central rotor. Audemars Piguet’s first flying tourbillon copy men watch was unveiled in the Royal Oak Concept series in 2018. The 27 jewel movement beats at 21,600 vph when fully tightened, providing a 65-hour power reserve. The case back reveals the exquisite decoration of the movement, such as “Côtes de Genève”, frosted, nailed and hand-polished chamfers, as well as a special hollow pendulum, made of 22K rhodium rose gold or 22K rose gold.

Whether it is stainless steel, titanium or 18K rose gold, the case and bracelet are hand polished, with the brand’s signature frosted and polished chamfers, which perfectly juxtapose the frosted and polished finishes.
