First Cambodian Watchmakers Graduate from Prince Horology


Prince Horology announces that its first batch of six Cambodian students successfully graduated from a comprehensive two-year micro-mechanics and watchmaking program in November 2022.

The Swiss watchmaking school was founded by the Prince Foundation in 2020 and the six graduates received their certificates at an official ceremony held at Prince Holding Group with their family members and Prince Horology staff present to commemorate the occasion.

At Prince Horology, students have access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities and are under the tutelage of professional Swiss-trained instructors. The mentors have worked in luxury groups such as The Swatch Group and Richemont as well as the Watchmakers of Switzerland Training and Educational Program (WOSTEP).

Lihuor Sak, one of the six graduates of the Prince Horology Class of 2022 said at the event “With the benefit of this intense two-year course providing us with foundational skills, we look forward to joining the industry.”

Ms. Jessica Thakur, Technical Advisor and Instructor at Prince Horology added “With the industry being virtually non-existent in Cambodia, Prince Horology has stepped in to create the competence base necessary for a strong start. With skilled watchmakers always being in high demand, the future is bright for Prince Horology graduates locally, regionally and internationally.”

Neak Oknha Chen Zhi, Chairman of Prince Holding Group, is a watch aficionado and the Cambodian Prime Minister is a well-known collector of rare and expensive watches.

The next course starts on 9th January 2023 and is open to local and international applicants.
