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.
