Hyt presents the H1 Antoine Griezmann and the H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition limited luxury sports watches

Antoine Griezmann, the rising French international striker, is considered by his peers to be one of the best centre-forwards in world football. Racing team Panis-Barthez Compétition is represented by Olivier Panis and Fabien Barthez, two legendary sportsmen who have both risen to the top of their fields in careers which span more than two decades.

To date, Olivier Panis is still the last French driver to win a Formula One Grand Prix (on the legendary Monaco race track back in 1996); Fabien Barthez is the most successful international goalkeeper in the history of French football, he was crowned best goalkeeper of the tournament in the 1998 World Cup, and then went on to launch his career in motorsport.Antoine Griezmann, the rising French international striker, is considered by his peers to be one of the best centre-forwards in world football.

Panis has won the Formula One Grand Prix in Monaco

Racing team Panis-Barthez Compétition is represented by Olivier Panis and Fabien Barthez, two legendary sportsmen who have both risen to the top of their fields in careers which span more than two decades. To date, Olivier Panis is still the last French driver to win a Formula One Grand Prix (on the legendary Monaco race track back in 1996); Fabien Barthez is the most successful international goalkeeper in the history of French football, he was crowned best goalkeeper of the tournament in the 1998 World Cup, and then went on to launch his career in motorsport.

These three exceptional men share the same passion for sport, with great humility, integrity, and professionalism: key values in elite sportsmen. Through their passion and performance, these two generations of sporting legends have naturally come to embody the values of HYT.

The legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans

The H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition is a high-tech timekeeping instrument which delivers outstanding performance in all environments, both day and night. In this timepiece, a green fluid loaded with fluorescent nanoparticles moves inside a jet black case, framed with a notched bezel in satin-finished titanium. HYT and Panis-Barthez Compétition have designed the centre of the watch to express all the power of the endurance racing world, by picking up the colours of the steering wheels on their cars. The seconds indicator and the power reserve are therefore adorned with blue, red and green. The minute track is topped with a sapphire bridge, over which passes a red hand, guaranteeing the high level of legibility demanded of sports watches. Each bridge on the H4 is cut out to reduce its weight, just like a race car. Finally, in a nod to the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans race which runs right through the night, the H4 Panis-Barthez Compétition is fitted with the HYT light module. When the push-button crown at 4:30 marked with the word “Flash” is pressed, the timepiece lights up mechanically, making the fluorescent green fluid which indicates the time glow spectacularly, like a gauge.
