Dubai, United Arab Emirates (January 17, 2024)
Hysek, the leading Swiss brand representing the pinnacle of haute horology, has launched a new version of the square-case Furtif powered by a new and 100%-manufacture calibre.
Bearing in mind the various customisation options for the pieces even before taking into account any engravings that may be added on the inserts, Hysek has engraved a very special motto on its new Furtif 44 mm Squelette: “Limited to… Infinity”. Indeed, no two timepieces will ever be alike.
Boasting the ultimate in skeletonisation, the watch’s meticulous design and finishings sparkle like never before. The charbonnage finish on the movement, performed in-house by hand, makes every watch unique.
The most distinctive feature is visible on the movement’s square chassis, running all around the case: a ‘charcoaled’ finish. The charbonnage technique is hardly ever used in watchmaking but Hysek has chosen to give it pride of place here. It involves applying a stick of a specific type of charcoal, by hand, leaving a unique pattern and forming an extremely soft, gentle abrasion that brings out all the highlights of the surface.
Boasting 172 components and 24 jewels, this new HW34 calibre offers a layout optimised for the square proportions of the Furtif with its 44 mm sides.
Connoisseurs eager to differentiate themselves will spot the superior features of the new timepiece including the layout of the 1, 5, 7, and 11 hour markers serving as cardinal points around which the HW34 caliber has been arranged. At 1 o’clock, there is the seconds’ wheel, at 5 o’clock sits the barrel providing a 45-hour power reserve. Its bridges, suspended in mid-air, stretch all the way to 7 o’clock, and the escapement is located at 11 o’clock beating at a rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
Every single decorative component has been designed exclusively for this model. To ensure the light reveals as rich a composition as possible, Hysek has worked on both the depth and the finish of its movement by creating different layers ranging from the time set mechanism to the upper bridge that gives the entire calibre its rigidity, and horizontal satin finish for the inner frame of the case and the vertical or circular satin finish of the bridges.
Launched in 1997, Hysek brand has imposed its disruptive vision within the watch industry as well as its atypical style which heckles and dares the difference. Independent and unconventional, Hysek has gained a significant and prestigious position in the high-end of luxury timepieces.
Hysek is a synonym of creativity, technicality, quality, exclusiveness and refinement. Its contemporary style reveals minimalist and pure lines. Its timepieces are the result of the harmony of shapes and volumes combined with an extreme search of the detail which convey a very strong and recognizable identity.
The brand has expanded very quickly and in the purpose of establishing its watch-making legitimacy, Hysek created its own manufacture in 2007, which placed the company as a major actor in the watch industry. The principal advantage of industrial independence is the ability to enrich designers’ graphic palettes and liberate them from any constraints imposed by generic movements with fixed parameters.
As a result, this approach allows for the creation of Hysek’s iconic timepieces characterized by their total exclusivity and contemporary style which seduce discerning individuals eager to express their passions and emphasize their originality. Distributed in more than 50 countries, Hysek prevails an international exposure and reputation with an exclusive boutique for the brand in Dubai Mall, UAE showcasing Hysek’s prestigious collections such as Abyss, Kilada, Furtif, and IO.
