To the Hilt

Bespoke - - SHOOT -

Founded in 1997 by the Ger­man de­signer Jörg Hy­sek (and ac­quired in 2000 by Akram Aljord, a Syr­ian busi­ness­man from Qara, who is to­day its CEO), the Swiss brand Hy­sek is cur­rently cel­e­brat­ing both its 20th an­niver­sary, as well as the tenth an­niver­sary of its ‘man­u­fac­ture’ sta­tus. To mark the oc­ca­sion it has re­leased the 700,000 USD Colos­sal, an in­cred­i­bly com­plex 1,080-com­po­nent watch, said to have taken three years to de­velop and 240 hours to as­sem­ble. Only eight pieces will be made.
