Saint Barthélemy, which is also known as St. Barths, is a French overseas jewel located at the heart of the Caribbean, known for its incredible weather, crystal-clear water and above all pristine white sand beaches. If you love beaches, the place should definitely feature on your travel list. In case you have been there and don’t want to leave the utopian paradise, now you can carry the Soul of St Barth on your wrist, as HYT has developed an exclusive manner in which to carry a small part of the world’s most beautiful beach all year round. The watchmaker’s newest limited edition timepiece H1 Sand Barth has sand from Anse du Gouverneur Beach infused into it.
First of all, the watch has the blue liquid already seen on the great-looking H1 Iceberg that illuminates the silver-toned open-worked dial and serves as an obvious reference to the Caribbean Sea. Then, and most originally, there is the new material especially developed for the case of this 25-piece limited edition. The unique resin case composition, also called polyepoxyde, brings an element of lightness to the watch with ground-breaking properties – 7 times lighter than stainless steel, 4 times lighter than titanium but 3 times more resistant. The case measures 48.8mm x 17.9mm and incorporates a few grains of sand from the Anse du Gouverneur in St. Barths, therefore allowing you to carry a small part of the world’s most beautiful beach all year round on your wrist. As for the straps, the watch can be opted with an extremely laid-back and summery white rubber strap or a more refined black rubberized alligator with blue stitches. Limited to only 25 examples, the HYT H1 Sand Barth watch is priced at 65,000 Swiss Francs ($67,300 approx).
