HYT watches was founded in 2012 by Lucien Vouillamoz in Neuchatel, Switzerland. The same year they released their first hybrid timepiece using liquid to display the time called the H1 during Basel World. They won 3 awards the same year for their watches. At the release of Basel World the watches sold well and the brand continued to grow and introduce new models. A sister brand was created called Preciflex which assisted in developing the indicating liquid. Both companies were chaired by Berdoz.
