Anton Sukhanov, Anna-Rose Kirk, and Tristan Ledard Awarded in Young Talent Competition at Baselworld

No contributor

Last Thursday during Baselworld, three distinguished horologists were commended by the Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants (AHCI) for the craftsmanship, innovation, and design expertise showcased in their original timepieces at the Young Talent Competition (YTC)  Awards Ceremony. Sponsored by Swiss watchmaker F.P. Journe for the second year in a row, the YTC invites students from 47 watchmaking schools in 14 different countries to present their work for evaluation by 34 watchmakers and members of the AHCI, and honors three winners with a diploma and a CHF 3,000 grant from tool manufacturer Horotec.

Russian watchmaker Anton Sukhanov created his Clock with Triple Axis Tourbillon, crafting a complex three-dimensional version of the popular anti-gravity apparatus. Encased in a block of nephrite, Sukhanov’s design features five portholes to view the intricate interior movements, having hand-crafted parts with a lathe, milling head, and microscope.

Birmingham-based horologist Anna-Rose Kirk created The Horizon Clock with Swahili time-keeping in mind; the consistency of the sunrise in Kenya, Uganda, and other equatorial countries inspired her to create a clock returning to time’s roots in solar cycles. The wall-mounted timepiece features a 24-hour dial and twin blue steel sunrise and sunset indicators.

Last, Parisian clockmaker Tristan Ledard created the Clock with Linear Equation of Time. Set on a cherry-wood table within a large terrestrial globe, the clock features hour and half-hour chiming; a calendar with seasons, equinoxes, solstices, and astronomical displays; and indexed local hours in a ring within the globe, allowing the user to determine the time anywhere in the world.
