The biggest buzz on last year’s BaselWorld might have been the HYT timepiece. An interesting new concept in watchmaking and causing a lot of stir amongst enthusiasts and collectors. We’ve been told that the delivery of the first HYT timepieces has started. One of the official retailers of the HYT watch is Chronopassion in Paris, owned by Laurent Picciotto.
Laurent Picciotto has an interesting range of brands in his boutique, a combination of manufacturers with history that goes back for centuries and new small brands with very special or interesting timepieces. The so-called ‘independents’ amongst watch makers. Vincent Perriard’s brand HYT seems to fit right in. An interesting conversation between Laurent Picciotto and Vincent Perriard has been recorded and posted on-line on the Chronopassion website.
