This watch uses a fluorescent liquid filled capillary tube to show the time. The liquid is pushed by a compressed reservoir. There is another liquid inside, with a different color that makes sure the other reservoir is being filled as the first reservoir pushes the colored liquid around. So, the reservoirs have this mechanism in place that control the fluid going back and forth in the tube. When the colored liquid has gone around the watch till 18:00, it flows back in the reservoir. Like a fluid retrograde.
The H1 comes in a few models, starting at approximately 40,000 Euro (Or you can trade in your fully loaded Acura if you don’t have that kind of money). There will be a H1 in Diamond-Like-Carbon (DLC), Titanium and pink gold. We’ve found the watches to be quite wearable with its dimensions (48.8 x 17.9 mm) and looks. So what do you think, is this Kray or what?
