About Us

The Watch & Clock School of Western Australia was founded in 2011. From initial beginnings in a classroom hired at a local government college, the School then expanded to leased premises in Gosnells. In 2020, the School moved yet again to state-of-the-art premises in Kenwick. The School has increased from twelve students in its first year of operation to thirty six students enrolling annually. Students range in age from 18 through to 70 and the course caters for both the hobbyist and those wishing to make watch and clock repair their profession. So far 15 students have completed the course in Watch and Clock Servicing and Repair while two students have completed the course in only Clock Service and Repair.
