Swiss Watchmaker Hyt Unveils Luminescent Moon Runner Model

Inspired by the íntricacies and secrets of of black holes, neutron stars, and pulsars, Swiss watchmaker Hyt has debuted its latest timepiece: the Moon Runner White Neon.

The future is measured in light years. Hyt is now approaching a new frontier of luminescence. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the independent Swiss watchmaker Hyt is unveiling a new, very exclusive luminescent edition of its Moon Runner model. Limited to 10 pieces and featuring new ultra-high performance luminescent materials, it is called ‘White Neon’ and has a new ambition: to be as interesting and seductive in the light as in the dark.

The exclusive model blends the latest iteration of light-charged Super-LumiNova®, created by the leading Swiss laboratory RC Tritec, with a hybrid ceramic and fluorescent component called Tec Light® on its exterior. Meanwhile, interior parts, including the dial, the numerals, the minute hand and the inscriptions on the indicator disks reflect a similar luminescent glow.

Can a watch be beautiful in the dark? This new Moon Runner White Neon was designed to meet a major challenge: to offer a watch that is as attractive and interesting in the dark as it is in the light. To achieve this, it has incorporated the power of hyper-light sources from outer space into its design.

The Swiss watchmaker notes that the watch is inspired by the “intricacies and secrets of black holes, neutron stars or pulsars”, with the goal of making an equally impressive statement during the day and at night. On top of its striking luminosity, the model is equipped with a 48 mm Hydro Carbon and Tec Light® case with a sapphire crystal dome and opposing dial that drives that mission home.

The Moon Runner White Neon will be produced in a limited edition of 10, in celebration of Hyt’s first 10 years of watchmaking. The timepiece will be available exclusively on their website, for a limited time between July 15 and August 1, with a price of CHF 130,000 (approximately $133,000 USD).

Come into the beautiful and timeless world of Hyt.
