Inspired by the Nomos Autobahn’s unusual name, we drove along its namesake, the German autobahn, to the city of Glashütte, where we tested the watch prior to its Baselworld 2018 debut.

The “hydro-mechanical horologists” at HYT are expanding their collection of skull-themed timepieces with three new titanium-cased models, each with a new galvanized, opaline-varnished skull dial in green, red, or blue, to match the hue of each watch’s fluidic hours display.
Housed in 48.8-mm cases made of titanium, with satin and sandblasted finishes, the watches, like their predecessors, use a colored fluid — f...Read more: Colorful Craniums: HYT Skull 48.8 Launches in Green, Red, and Blue
