ABYSS « H » IN TITANIUM by Jörg Hysek - Back To The Future
Jörg Hysek is a German artist, designer and watch manufacturer. Hysek's son, Jörg Hysek Jr., is sales director at De Bethune as of 2017.
Hysek spent four years working at Rolex before starting his own design company, Hysek Styling. After this, he worked for Breguet, Boucheron, Cartier, Ebel, Omega, TAG Heuer, Tiffany, and Vacheron Constantin.
Hysek lead the design of "Project 222" for Vacheron Constantin, which later became the Overseas model, though many erroneously credit it to Gerald Genta. He was awarded the “Grand Prix de la Ville de Genève” in 1984 for the Vacheron Constantin “Cuff Watch”. Famous watch models crucially marked by him include the Vacheron Constantin 222, Breguet Marine, Seiko Arctura, TAG Heuer Kirium, and Tiffany Streamerica.
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.
A major novelty for Hysek in this early 2021, the 41mm Abyss with three titanium hands. An evocative timepiece that recalls the genesis dedicated to those in search of the rare object to be collected.
Fifteen years have passed since the birth of Abyss, and yet this collection retains its dynamism and seductive appeal. Which is why a new version of the collection is making the news at Hysek today, as the year 2021 begins.
With a 41 mm diameter, driven by a self-winding micro-rotor movement in titanium, it keeps the characteristics that have made the Abyss line so successful. is while displaying a more “gentleman’s driver” style, dedicated to those in search of the rare object to be collected. Its two-tone blue dial with Arabic numerals and indexes is enhanced by a date window under a magnifying glass at 3 o’clock.
A simple and efficient stylistic effect, reduced to the essentials, because this 2021 Abyss needs absolutely no other artifice to garner all the votes. A new must have.
