CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC OR FUTURISTIC RETRO? AS ITS NAME SUGGESTS, THE H2 TRADITION IS A MEETING OF THE TWO. IT IS THE FIRST HYT WITH CLASSIC GUILLOCHE? FINISHES. IT IS THE FIRST HYT WITH DELICATE LACQUERED DIALS AND BLUED HANDS. HOWEVER, UNDERNEATH THIS MANTLE OF LIGHT, THE H2 TRADITION HAS BOTH FEET FIRMLY IN THE 21ST CENTURY. IT RETAINS ITS HYDRO-MECHANICAL AESTHETIC, THANKS TO THE CAPILLARY WITH THE BLUE FLUID MOVING FORWARDS AS THE HOURS PASS. IT IS DRIVEN BY TWO BELLOWS POSITIONED EITHER SIDE OF 6 O'CLOCK, DEVELOPED IN 2013 ON THE VERY FIRST H2. THE TRADITIONAL SIDE IS EXPRESSED BY THE DIAMOND GUILLOCHE? MAIN PLATE, THE OGIVAL SHAPED CROWN AND ITS BLUED HANDS: HYT WANTED IT TO BE CLASSICAL AND EASY TO READ, WITH THE MOST SUBTLE OF AESTHETICS.
THIS CONSTANT BALANCE BETWEEN TRADITION AND MODERNITY IS MORE COMPLEX THAN IT SEEMS. HYT HAD TO MODIFY THE DESIGN OF THE H2'S CALIBRE. THE GOAL? TO GIVE IT A MORE CLASSIC APPEARANCE, IN LINE WITH THE AESTHETIC CANONS OF HAUTE HORLOGERIE. THE BALANCE, FOR EXAMPLE, HAS BEEN RECENTRED TO PROVIDE ROOM ON THE DIAL FOR THE MINUTES. THIS SIMPLE SHIFT MEANT A LARGE PART OF THE MOVEMENT'S DESIGN HAD TO BE OVERHAULED, A FEAT ONCE AGAIN ACHIEVED BY HYT'S LONG-STANDING PARTNERS, APRP. THE CASE HAS ALSO BEEN RE- DESIGNED, WITH THE CROWN PROTECTOR REMOVED, IN YET ANOTHER NOD TOWARDS THE CODES OF WATCHMAKING TRADITION. THE FINISH OF THE H2 TRADITION ALSO REQUIRED A NUMBER OF ADJUSTMENTS. TO ALLOW FOR A DIAMOND GUILLOCHE? FINISH IN RHODIUM-PLATED NICKEL SILVER ON BOTH SIDES, THE MAIN PLATE, FOR EXAMPLE, HAD TO BE MADE SLIGHTLY THICKER, WHICH IN TURN MEANT NEW TOLERANCES HAD TO BE CALCULATED FOR THE MOVEMENT. ALL THE BRIDGES HAVE BEEN MODIFIED, RECONSTRUCTED, POLISHED, HAND-BEVELLED. AS WITH ALL HYT'S CREATIONS, THE H2 TRADITION IS BEST APPRECIATED IN TERMS OF PERSPECTIVE AND VOLUME.
