The identity of the Jaquet-Droz family was shaped by its history, creations and encounters. With each new venture, the Jaquet Droz signature became increasingly recognizable as the genetic codes of the brand evolved: the Grande Seconde, automata, the Ateliers d’Art, enameled dials, watchcases with sensuous curves, the use of minerals, exceptional mechanisms and highly exclusive Numerus Clausus limited editions.

HYT was born of a question. Time flows so why limit its measurement to indicating the now in isolation, with needle-sharp hands or fleeting digital displays? Determined that its rebellion should make statements and waves, a multi-disciplinary think-tank set out to create timepieces that visibly connect the past, present and future. The HYT answer is a watch that overcomes the force of gravity to indicate the passage of time with liquids.
