[R] When I cbind the POSIXct gets lost

I would like to create a new dataframe from the DateTime column of an existing dataframe and a numeric vector. When I do cbind(x[,1], y) the result is:

[1,] 1199370600 12.500
[2,] 1199371200 69.375
[3,] 1199371800 23.750

where the first column you see used to look like:

 "2008-01-03 08:30:00 Central Standard Time"
 "2008-01-03 08:40:00 Central Standard Time"
 "2008-01-03 08:50:00 Central Standard Time"

How do I keep the DateTime from getting converted? I've tried as.POSIXct() to convert it back (no luck).
