Based on the same action structure as H1, HYT’s first plan, H4 Metropolis Daily is completely hollowed out, but this is not the only difference.
The 51mm x 17.9mm large titanium case is also equipped with a black DLC titanium alloy bezel and two rubber-coated screw-in black DLC titanium crowns: one at 2:30 to set the time and winding movement, the other at 4:30 a brand new feature.
In fact, H4 Metropolis is equipped with a light source, but its origin is purely mechanical. Below the rider at 6 o’clock, HYT hides two LEDs, which when activated, will illuminate the entire dial with blue light.
At night, the green liquid is excited by this light source and becomes clearly visible. At the same time, the light illuminates the hollow structure of the dial. The generator is not visible, it is located between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock. As shown in the video at the end of the article, the button turns at 4:30 to convert mechanical energy into light energy and drive the generator to rotate, just like a generator. Applying pressure to the same button activates both LEDs.
This lighting lasts for five seconds, after which the mechanism must be reinitialized. Of course, this process is completely mechanical, so no battery is needed.
The unique HYT copy manual winding movement beats at a speed of 28,800 vph and can run autonomously for 65 hours after being fully wound. The front dial has a power reserve indicator at 2:30. Through the sapphire crystal back cover, you can see that it is characterized by manual beveling and micro-sand-blasting bridges.
The H4 Metropolis is water-resistant to 50 meters, with a black rubber strap, one-piece canvas and black DLC titanium folding clasp.
