With the new H2 Aviator, HYT replica watches presents for the first time a timepiece imagined for aviation lovers and their specific requirements.
Rather than just being an evolution of the original H2 model with its mechanical and fluid dynamic time indications, the H2 Aviator transforms the look of the Omega replica watches and enhances its legibility, a key element for all flight instruments.
The minute rail track has been redrawn with its quarter hour indexes enlarged and in red. The central hand has also been enlarged and tipped by a red arrow, a first for HYT. The crown position indicator (H-N-R) located at 3 o’clock is visible via a window that displays the selected function.
To ensure all components shine with maximum visibility they are placed on a DLC treated movement with a satin finish and polished angles. DLC is the acronym for Diamond-Like Carbon, a class of amorphous carbon material that displays some of the typical properties of diamond. It is usually applied as coatings to other materials.
The titanium case is entirely coated in DLC including the hour indexes that are treated with grey anthracite Super-LumiNova. Sized at 48.8 mm x 17.9 mm, it offers water resistance to 50 metres.
The H2 Aviator is powered by the hand-wound HYT calibre beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour and offering a remarkable 8-day power reserve thanks to its double barrel visible through the back of the replica Cartier watches.
Combined to a new Omega replica strap in Kevlar, a synthetic fibre chosen for its high tensile strength and temperate resistance, the H2 Aviator is a limited edition of 40 pieces and will be available in October 2015 at a price of Swiss Francs 150,000 / Euro 150,000 / US$ 157,000.
