HYSEK – IO 42 Power Reserve

HYSEKIO 42 Power Reserve and Grande Date NEW

IO 42 mm Power Reserve:
reinventing a classic

Sometimes, you need to revisit your roots. Having unveiled a number of fine watchmaking models this year, as well as a complete ladies’ collection, Hysek has now returned to one of its most sober models, the IO 42 mm Power Reserve.

With its three hands, date, and power reserve, the new IO 42 mm embodies Hysek’s take on classical watchmaking. “Creating a pure, enduring timepiece is a more complicated exercise than it looks,” explains Hysek’s CEO Akram Aljord. “Unlike the fine watches we’ve been devising for the past fifteen years according to our own lights, traditional watchmaking is an area in which much has already been accomplished. Renewing the genre – and adding something new in keeping with our own DNA – has been a gargantuan challenge.”

Hysek’s IO collection comprises round, classical-style pieces, featuring traditional watchmaking’s most emblematic complications: date, moon phase, and chronograph. The new IO 42 mm is the only model to include a power reserve. Formerly available atop a black dial, the piece now has a more contemporary feel thanks to a brighter, livelier electric blue livery.

The new-look sun-brushed dial has polished rhodium-plated hands and appliques that reflect light in all directions. Meanwhile the date display at 12 o’clock features large windows, making it very readable. The time and date are set using a single crown at 3 o’clock, enhanced with a black disc bearing a raised “H” for Hysek.

The power reserve is deployed at 6 o’clock. An imposing yet precise hand with a semi-circular movement displays the watch’s remaining power reserve over 42 hours. Around it, every aspect of the 42 mm steel case is exactly right down to the tiniest detail, with a refined blend of satin and polished parts. The signature lugs that are now one of Hysek’s hallmarks are there, along with another – the distinctive presence of only the 1, 5, 7 and 11 Arabic numeral applique hour markers.

The timepiece is powered by a Swiss Made automatic movement with 22 jewels, visible through the sapphire caseback. The movement has been developed in line with traditional watchmaking style codes, including a Côtes de Genève finish and blued screws. Hysek has opted for a high-frequency caliber boasting 28,800 vibrations per hour, guaranteeing perfect precision. The new IO 42 mm Power Reserve sports a blue leather strap, and will be available from autumn 2016.
