Hysek first emerged onto the scene in 1997 with the Kilada timepiece, immediately establishing the brand’s unashamedly disruptive approach to watchmaking. Mr Akram Aljord took over the company in 2000, overseeing its international expansion to Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the United States. The first tourbillons came out in 2003, soon followed by the first grandes complications. In 2007 Hysek became a fully-fledged, integrated manufacture, producing its own calibers and complications independently. The Abyss was the first timepiece to be equipped with an in-house tourbillon, in 2008. Two years later, the brand opened its first flagship store in Singapore before going on to open boutiques in Geneva, Shanghai, Moscow and many other locations. Today, Hysek continues to pursue its unique creative vision, applying its own watchmaking ethos to innumerable complications and variations on the theme of the tourbillon, with a special focus on jumping hours, chronographs, and triple time zones amongst other features.
