'La Colonne du Temps'
In Baselworld 2017 was where the collaboration between Jörg Hysek and Sinclair Harding began. It was towards the end of the show Bob Bray decided it was time for his first Bratwurst of the show in the sunshine. This was cut short as Jörg and Kim Hysek had been trying to find him. Jörg had a vision, which he had been told by other clockmakers that if this complex design was to be done, Bob was the guy to do it.
Not knowing what to expect Bob met with Jörg and Kim and they approached him with Jörg’s vision for the ‘La Colonne du Temps’. By the end of the conversation Bob had an idea and started to sketch…..the challenge was accepted to have the first ‘La Colonne du Temps’ ready for Baselworld 2018.
Along this challenging journey in the development of the ‘La Colonne du Temps’ meant the whole team at Sinclair Harding had learn new techniques and skills in design, manufacture, finish and in the assembly to create this timepiece. This was all completed under the watchful eye of Jörg Hysek. It was key for Jörg, that this creation was true to his vision and we both feel this was achieved.
