The CEO of HYT is Vincent Perriard. He was president of Concord watches when they used a similar-looking luminous liquid in the power reserve indicator of the Concord C1 Quantum Gravity:

Maybe this HYT liquid has the same ingredients and glows in the dark too? An interesting concept for sure.

He recently left Concord to be CEO of Technomarine. He must not have been into fashion-bling plastic watches as he quit Technomarine after 18 months to launch this brand!

With any luck, everyone else will leave too.

I liked the theme tune but was disappointed with the watch. It was too easy to tell the time. If you are going to over complicate a fairly straightforward set of mechanics at least provide a bit of a challenge to the viewer! 8)

Incidentally, the time was ten past ten. Or, at least I think it was. :wink:

Nice find Mr Rick.

Would anyone here seriously consider parting with $45k USD for one of these instead of say... something from a Sotheby's watch auction?
