The HYT H4 Gotham Watch Exclusively at Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces in Chicago

What is the HYT H4 Gotham watch?

Well, essentially it is the HYT H1 with a skeletonized movement in the HYT Skull case. The Skull enlarged the already big 48.8mm wide H1 case to 51mm with additional case changes, such as removal of the crown guard.

Nevertheless, here, in this very lightweight carbon material, it doesn't feel heavy or too big on the wrist (even though it is 17.9mm thick). If you are going to wear a large watch, you might as well wear something like this that combines a radical design with a cool movement that you really want to see in action.

If you are new around here and haven't heard of HYT yet, the point of the brand is to use liquid to help indicate the time.

This HYT H4 Gotham uses red-colored liquid in the specially developed tube and bellows system to indicate the hours. A more traditional hand on the dial indicates the minutes, while it is flanked on either side with a subsidiary seconds dial to the left and a power reserve indicator to the right. Not that the H1 watch's movement wasn't at all skeletonized, but the HYT H4's movement steps it up a notch with a sapphire crystal plate serving as much of the dial over some movement bridges. Geneva Seal Fine Jewelry & Timepieces is the ONLY Authorized Dealer for HYT watches in Chicago.

Wedding Wednesday: Yellow Diamond Engagement Rings

Once in a blue moon a diamond enters our Geneva Seal home that is so breathtaking, so beautiful, and so sexy that we just. Can't. Take it.

Yellow diamonds do that to me. The symbolic essence of the yellow color is renewal, hope, cheerfulness and sunlight. A yellow diamond ring, whether given to your love as an engagement ring, gifted to yourself or someone in your life is said to bring blessings of joy and prosperity.

Without a doubt, it would be a perfect gesture if you propose to your love with a yellow diamond engagement ring. Diamonds don't have to be white. Rock a yellow center stone and shine on.

There are different shades of yellow diamonds. Natural fancy yellow diamonds (or canary diamonds) come in varying color shades - like faint, very light, light, fancy, fancy intense, fancy vivid, and fancy deep.

The most intriguing part about yellow diamonds is that no two yellow stones are ever alike, fulfilling the engagement ring trend of more unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. The fascinating and distinct hue and brilliance of each yellow diamond is quite different, as opposed to the many similar looking white diamonds.

Choice of metal will depend on your taste. You may choose to set the yellow diamond in either contrasting white gold or platinum. Monochrome hues of white gold and platinum impart a sharpened visual impact to a yellow diamond. Yellow metal can also be a choice, but it doesn’t do justice to the brilliance of a yellow diamond.

Choosing the setting is tough and Geneva Seal in Chicago keeps in mind your loves lifestyle. Each ring is unique and special, deciding on the setting of your loves engagement ring has to do with their taste and way of life. However, open and clear setting do justice to yellow diamond engagement rings.

It’s crucial to let in plenty of light under the diamond for maximum brilliance from all angles. This is best accomplished by prong setting that looks extremely compelling and elegant, while tension setting adds a dramatic touch.

On the contrary, I will not suggest bezel setting and channel setting for yellow stones, as these settings cover a big portion of the stone causing a dull appearance. Go for bezel only if your love has an active lifestyle.

Shine on.

 

BIG NEWS: HYT Won the "Favourite Men's Watch" Award

Geneva Seal's exclusive luxury watch brand HYT (Hydro-Mechanical Horologists) won the "Favourite Men's Watch" award at this years grandest luxury timepiece and jewellery showcase in Asia, A Journey Through Time. Celebrating it's eighth edition, the annual showcase has become iconic worldwide for bringing together the biggest and most prominent names in the watch and jewellery industry.

The HYT H1 Dracula DLC took home the prestigious "Favourite Men's Watch" award and we couldn't be more proud. According to watch enthusiast Brice Goulard,

"The HYT H1 Dracula is inspired by the most famous vampire of the classical literature, the Count Dracula. To fulfill the spirit of this novel written by Bram Stoker and the Gothic atmosphere that it shows, HYT has chosen a full-black DLC coating on the case, enliven by several bloody-red accents. The fluid also shares that same colour, identical to the HYT H1 Red2. The dial uses that same monochromatic idea with a dark grey finish."

Once again, HYT presents a revolutionary watch. By pushing engineering to new heights and creating a design that generates genuine emotions, HYT is evolving in the upper luxury market. Mixing mechanics and liquid within a wristwatch was a dream - or a nightmare - until the unveiling of HYT timepieces. Geneva Seal couldn't be more thrilled about our very own HYT H1 Dracula winning the "Favourite Men's Watch award. Now, a little more about the watch,

"The bloody-red accents can be found on the second-wheel, the power-reserve indicator and the crown. The strap features a very cool black alligator leather with red veins. The movement is now coated in black too instead of a rhodium plated treatment on the other editions. We also note a little evolution of the central dial that shows the minutes, with bigger indexes, always coated with luminescent material. We can expect a better night-time legibility," explains Brice.

Congratulations to all of this years winners, we can't wait until next year.
