Still life is never about life standing still. Just like an element of one of those beautifully haunting paintings, the HYT Skull 48.8 has carpe diem on its mind. This distinctive timepiece continually reminds of the importance of seizing every second. Highlighting time’s passage using liquids, it focuses on the power of the present, the very elixir of life.
The charismatic protagonist of this mesmerizing staging of time’s flow is a skull-shaped capillary. A patented fluidic module and exclusive mechanical calibre with 65 hours power reserve bring this to life. Colored liquid symbolizes reflection, while its transparent counterpart speculates reservedly on the future. Their meeting point precisely depicts the vital now.
Light and color play accomplished supporting roles in the drama of the Skull 48.8. As each shade flows around the skull to represent elapsed life, it extends its contrasting influence over the monochromatic backcloth of the grey dial and titanium case. Each color is limited 50 pieces complete with grey fabric strap.
