HYT Skull Maori

The HYT Skull Maori is anything but simple. The central skull figure may appear non-functional, but the capillary around the outline carries a fluid to act as the hour marker. The construction of the capillary was difficult because of the one-millimeter diameter of the tube and the four angles, two of which are almost 90 degrees at the base. Although the glass had to bend, it is easily breakable and placing the tubes was a very delicate task for the watchmakers. This kind of artistry and engineering explains why this watch is a 15-piece limited edition.

The mechanical exclusive HYT Caliber powers the black DLC titanium and 5N gold 51mm case. Functions include retrograde red fluid hours and seconds. All of this is placed on a brown leather strap with a laser engraved black pattern, inspired by the Maori tribal tattoo.


The ultimate in hybrid technology unites two worlds that are supposedly diametrically opposed. The result is a mechanical wristwatch shattering all certainties and steamrollering conformity. Unveil each glorious technical aspect in detail. Discover more about HYT here.
