HYT’s H1 Dracula DLC was named winner of The Favourite Mens Watch Award during the prestigious A Journey Through Time VIII , 21-28 November 2014.
The award winners were selected by an international panel of five expert judges, including Dr. Bernard Chong who has presided over both the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie and the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie. Announced during the 28 November closing grand gala dinner, the Prize lauded the Dracula’s daring use of fluids and mechanics in the same watch and striking masculine design.
Launched in September 2014, HYT’s limited edition H1 Dracula DLC was inspired by the unforgettable 19th century vampire legend and incorporates an unstructued red fluid on the dial and red veins on a sleek black alligator strap. Its 48.8mm titanium black DLC case has brushed, shot-peened and satin-finished surfaces. It has a mechanical HYT calibre hand-wound movement, 65-hour power reserve, hand-chamfered bridges and is adorned with côtes de Genève, rhodiumed bellows.
The Dracula is one of HYT’s 20 ground breaking models and representative of the brand’s determination to break with classical watch-making traditions with high-disruptive high-technology concepts.
