HYSEK – Abyss Automatic Tourbillon Edition

HYSEKABYSS 44mm Automatic Tourbillon Limited Edition NEW


The tenth anniversary celebrations of Hysek’s landmark Abyss collection (2005-2015) were scarcely over when the manufacture announced the first models for the next decade: the new Abyss Automatic Tourbillon collection.

Three new models are being unveiled at Baselworld. The first has a rose gold case and the second a titanium case, while the third and final version features a case combining rose gold and black PVD. Each of the variations embodies the quintessence of the Hysek style: powerful lines, a bold design, assertive creativity, and particular attention to the smallest detail, with all finishings completed to the highest standards of fine watchmaking.

Transparency and geometry

The new Abyss collection is powered by an automatic tourbillon calibre. The watch’s aesthetic balance is bound up with this regulating component located at 10 o’clock – an unusual position in traditional watchmaking, but one for which Hysek has a predilection, thus asserting its complete creative independence. This is balanced by a double large date disc made from a special aluminium alloy, placed opposite at 2 o’clock. The timepiece also features a power reserve indicator at 7 o’clock.

To highlight the aesthetics of this subtle composition, Hysek has used a sapphire dial, set snugly around the edges of the tourbillon and large date display. The sculpted half-moon-shape sapphire crystal reveals the intimate details of the in-house movement – the HW03A calibre.
The new Abyss models offer breath-taking views of their mechanical innards, powered by a highly skeletonised tourbillon, with a ‘flying’ design to avoid an upper bridge obstructing the view. A large golden balance wheel contrasts with the movement’s anthracite NAC finish.

The crescent-moon-shaped cut-out in the sapphire dial is highlighted by an appliqué arc that links the different functions of the timepiece, reaching from the tourbillon to the power reserve, via the large date display – a unifying feature of the Abyss that provides both aesthetic and technical coherence. The appliqué features a dark grey angle-polished finish, showing off the chamfers – gold- or rhodium-plated, depending on the version.

Details for expert purists

Purists will delight in spotting all the details of watchmaking art visible throughout the new Abyss. For instance, Hysek is one of the very few manufactures to design and produce its own hands in-house. There are two distinct kinds for the Abyss.

The first is dedicated to the central time display: depending on the case finishes, they are either golden or rhodium-plated, with SuperLumiNova infills. Meanwhile the power reserve hand embodies characteristic attention to detail with genuine 3D sculpting – a contemporary, exclusive design that’s dear to Hysek’s heart.

On the rear, the new Abyss collection boasts a fully skeletonised oscillating weight, borne on ceramic ball bearings by a rhodium-plated 22-carat gold insert sporting Hysek’s five distinctive circular openings. The same motif is also to be found on the manufacture’s proprietary – and legendary – swivel lugs. These are an integral part of the firm’s DNA, ensuring its timepieces always fit snugly on the wrist and providing the last word in comfort. Hysek’s CEO, Mr Akram ALJORD himself, guarantees the individual quality of each of these three editions of 88 timepieces: the sapphire back of each of the new Abyss Automatic Tourbillon watches bears his signature.
