I was Born in Menorca, and my name is Bartomeu Gomila Sintes I was first brought into contact with watches when I was seven, I was ill in bed and my grandmother gave me an old broken alarm clock to entertain me. This odd mechanism would shape my life, since a growing interest for watchmaking mechanisms was born with it. During my teenage summer holidays, I worked in a jeweller's shop to finance my first motorcycle. There I knew I wanted to devote my career to watchmaking.
Therefore, I studdied micromechanics in Verge de la Mercé in Barcelona (1995), combining these studies with various jobs, the last one in Roca jewellery, where I would go on after finishing my degree as a Rolex after-sales service employee (1999).
I also worked for the Richemont group technical service, but I needed something else, so I decided to put my faith in my dream, watchmaking and restoration, so I enrolled in the Restoration and Complicated Watches Course in the WOSTEP Foundation School in Switzerland, a postgraduate course for watchmakers working in restoration of the highest quality antique watches.
Another opportunity came up from that, as I was offered to develope the first mechanical watch that mesures thousandths of a second, with the "TIMEWRITER TWO" project, developed in cooperation with the "Institute de recherche d'haute horlogerie Minerva".
I now have my own workshop "Taller del Temps" in Alaior, Menorca. from here i provide a service to clients around the locally and around the world,
My expertise is to restore valuable time pieces of any age, and i have the ability to manufacture parts to a very high precision for watches that no longer have spare parts available.
There are some who work for a living, others who live for working, and others like me who simply LOVE's his job, that is why I chose to return to live and work in the tranquility and beauty of the island with it's relaxed speed of life gives me a great pleasure to relax and truly enjoy my free time.
