For more than two years, HYT and its partners have been working together to create a material able to integrate external elements chosen by future owners. "The real challenge was to develop an alloy whose chemical structure we could alter by adding solid, foreign elements to its basic formula, without affecting either its reliability or technical properties, such as hardness, density or brilliance", explains Vincent Perriard, HYT CEO. "Our knowledge of fluid technology, in conjunction with the right partner, with an added pinch of audacity — or perhaps insanity — allowed us to achieve this goal!".
Owners therefore can, under certain technical conditions, incorporate solid elements from their own personal universe in their HYT.
