KTS (Kairos Technology Switzerland SA) takes over the reins of HYT, acquires all of its assets and appoints David Cerrato CEO. A revival and long-term development of the brand are thus assured by a Swiss company.
In 2012, the HYT watch brand created a buzz within the watchmaking community with its hybrid mechanical-fluidic technology allowing the time to be displayed using fluids. This unique module is driven by a manufactured mechanical movement. HYT thus combines mechanical virtuosity and avant-garde technology.
In 2021, Kairos Technology Switzerland SA took over all the assets of HYT and appointed Davide Cerrato as CEO. This veteran of the watchmaking industry, with a track record of success with brands such as Panerai, Tudor and Montblanc/Minerva, has accepted this new challenge.
« I am delighted to take over the general management of this magnificent brand. HYT has succeeded in bringing a new dimension to the watch industry thanks to its innovative and groundbreaking content. The brand is thus clearly positioned as a “trailblazer” for fine watchmaking in the new millennium. We have already set to work to perpetuate this promise of innovation, to re-enchant watch enthusiasts and collectors, but also to push back the existing technical limits, by materialising a new pleasure of wearing a luxury watch. A pleasure that mixes « maestria » with mechanical virtuosity, fluid displays and avant-garde designs.» says Davide Cerrato, HYT’s new CEO.
HYT’s activities resumed in September to present the brand’s new identity and a new watch expression, scheduled for launch in January 2022.
