Test the HYT Moon Runner Supernova Blue in the sun and the moonlight of St Tropez
Jody Bellido As part of its Moon Runner mission, HYT landed its ship in St Tropez on the French Riviera to join the WorldTempus team. Thanks to a brief pit stop before flying to other galaxies, we were able to put the Moon Runner watch to the test. The Moon Runner Supernova Blue's blue moon is housed in a 48mm case (the blue moon refers to the 13th moon of the year, not the usual 12), which is reflected in its limited production of 27 pieces. As with its retrograde fluid time display, the hours are indicated by two different fluids in the glass capillary. On this model, half of the liquid is dyed a special "supernova" blue, while the other half is transparent. As a winner of the brand, this watch clearly challenges traditional watchmaking norms and creates its own place in the horological world.
Marie de Pimodin At first glance, I have to admit that I am a little confused about this timepiece. How can my female wrist hold such a spectacular watch? At 48mm wide and 52.3mm long, the Moon Runner sounds like a titan! But actually, I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it was on the wrist. Not only did the designers shape its lines perfectly to conform to the contours of the wrist, but they also opted for a titanium case to limit its weight considerably. A very successful new case design gives the wholesale replica watches a futuristic spaceship look accompanied by real functionality. Under the imposing sapphire dome, the three-dimensional moon occupies the center of the dial, attracting the eye like a magnet. The retrograde time is indicated by a capillary tube on the periphery of the dial, the liquid of which is tinted "supernova" blue by the brand. As for the day and month indications, they are clearly displayed on two titanium discs. This timepiece reminds you every day that the future starts now.
Sophie Foley I have a few watches with moon phases, but honestly they are never right, not because they don't work, but because I never set them. However, when I wore the Moon Runner Supernova Blue on my wrist, I realized that if I had this watch, I would probably spend all my time admiring the moon and completely ignore the time and calendar indications! This 3D representation of the moon makes a loud bang in the middle of the watch, with a V-shaped arm and a circle at the end to indicate the current moon phase. Wear it at dinner, the moon over St Tropez is in its waning bulge phase (full disclosure: I only know this because I googled it!), but it matches the Moon Runner, which makes the I have a renewed interest in the Moon Complications. Maybe I should set the moon phase of my watch...or convince the lovely people at HYT to let me keep this!
Caitlin Fish With only one year of experience in the high quality watches replica industry, I am often blown away by new technological innovations, but HYT goes a step further with its Moon Runner Supernova Blue. Where many timepieces focus on tradition and staying on trend, the Moon Runner has skyrocketed into the future. The unique "supernova" blue color of this piece is absolutely stunning, and the liquid-filled capillary can tell time, instantly taking me back to high school science class. At first, the watch face can be a learning curve, but once you get used to the features, it's incredibly readable and intuitive. I've always had a strong love for the night sky, which makes me love the moon phases, but this piece will definitely stand out from the rest.
I know the 80s are pretty trendy for Gen Z kids right now, but as a true 80s kid, I feel like I have more insight into the era than young Tik-Tokers in Duran Duran crop tops and pastel shoes in depth. What you have to realize about the 80s (or remember, if you're like me, you're old enough to experience it) is how high the contrast in the world is. Never mind faded VHS home video clips or muddy-looking photos from that era—it's just another example of how technology can't capture the true vibrancy of life. Everything that can be lit is lit. Before the 1980s, no one thought of embedding LED lights in children's shoes. Everything that can glow in the dark glows in the dark. For this reason, I still have an incredibly strong passion for glow stick bracelets and neon lights. HYT Moonrunner may be a cynical attempt to tap into this rich nostalgia, but somehow I can't bring myself to protest. This is not a comment. This is not a fact-based analysis. This is me asking, "How does this watch make you feel?" Looking at the HYT Moonrunner takes me back to the 1980s. In other words, it makes me feel young.replica Greubel Forsey GMT Watches
