Recently, I published a story (it happened). These comments, at least some of them, expressed frustration with several things (it happened). Two things that are problematic are the sheer number of very expensive watches that have been showing up on the site lately, and the other thing is how often prices are reported as "available on request". This tends to happen when limited editions are highly complex, and I'm not entirely sure why brands insist on price-as-demand theaters, other than that it might keep them from committing to market-specific prices for a work whose actual cost can vary by thousands of dollars , depending on whether there are foreign exchange issues.
Now, there are some watches in the field that I like to call "super watches" that have some analogies to the so-called supercars. Not only are they expensive—they are often very complex, far beyond any practical requirements, and they demonstrate perseverance, imagination, and a willingness to deploy previously unheard-of technologies. Watchmaking (the entire Harry Winston Opus collection is more or less super replica watches luxury).
HYT had a lot of early adopters who both liked highly complex questions and didn't want to see another girl in the same dress at the prom. But as the watch went out into the world, it ran into technical problems and the company went bankrupt in 2021. However, unlike many high-concept superwatch companies that eventually perished, HYT rose from the ashes under a new management, with a new CEO: Davide Cerrato, former head of watch design at Tudor and Montblanc. HYT's first watch under the Cerrato banner is the Hastroid, and the company's latest watch continues the theme of spacecraft and space exploration as well as science fiction, most recently with the Supernova Blue Moon Runner.
The Supernova Blue Moon Runner uses the same basic technology as every HYT watch. The capillary contains two fluids, one colored and one transparent. The two fluids are immiscible—that is, they are made up of substances that repel each other and do not mix, such as oil and water. The two fluids are propelled by a system of bellows, where one bellows expands and the other contracts to draw the fluid around the tube. According to HYT, the walls of the tubes are very thin—less than a quarter of the diameter of a human hair. The expansion and contraction of the bellows is controlled by a cam and lever system. watch replica swiss
The entire bellows and capillary system won't work unless the entire bellows and capillary system is completely sealed, which HYT says is 10,000 times more airtight than a dive watch (its seal does allow atmospheric gas in and out, albeit very slowly). What HYT calls "fluid modules" are permanently sealed.
Fluids also expand and contract with changes in temperature, and since a watch must be able to withstand a wide range of ambient temperatures inside and outside the wrist, you need some kind of system to protect the fluid module from malfunctioning as the fluid expands and contracts. To address this, one of the bellows has an internal thermal compensation system that expands or contracts with temperature changes to maintain the correct fluid pressure and position of the boundary between the two fluids. The cam and lever system must operate with extreme precision—one minute of elapsed time equals 1.5 microns of fluid advance, so the error is small. It takes 12 hours for the fluid to advance around the dial once, and at the end of each 12-hour cycle, the two bellows are immediately reset to their original positions and the cycle begins again.fake men watch
The minutes are read from the outer track on the inner flange of the dial. Two rotating discs are placed concentrically around the central moon-phase display, allowing you to read the date and month from their position adjacent to the six o'clock position.
The most striking feature of this watch, however, is the central hemispherical moon phase display, which actually manages to surpass the fluid retrograde hour display (not an easy trick to pull off). I don't know how many moon phase displays I've seen over the past few decades, but there are quite a few - moon phases are a lovely thing when done the traditional way, but there are plenty of ways to skin a cat, and as long as When given the chance, it's something watchmakers love to play with moon phase display changes.
The moon phase display consists of the moon's central hemisphere and an aperture that shows how well the moon is illuminated. It's easy to read and in principle no different from any other aperture-based moonphase display, but the execution is unlike anything else I've seen, and it gives the watch a visual punch that almost makes you forget about microfluidics, which is great for For the first time at HYT it was a supporting role rather than a featured player. HYT also makes excellent use of Super-LumiNova - including on the lunar hemisphere itself (which, like the lunar phase aperture and its curved support bridge, is made of titanium). replica Jacob and Co.

I've written about watches over the past few decades, I've seen more watches that I can't afford, and I've had some vanity moments, but these are largely limited to price and actual drama Disconnect the content of the watch when prices are rising, often in what is essentially a commodity watch. The Superwatch, on the other hand, is so much fun to read and watch, sometimes even seen in person, and what we get out of it, for the most part, isn't what the dragon gets by sitting on it. Gold (I never forgot, Thorin the dwarf in The Hobbit said that although dragons are rich, it is often impossible to tell a work from good or bad). Instead, what we get out of this is a more interesting world of timepieces.
