Bucharest, April 22, 2023 - Albini Prassa is pleased to announce the first course "Be a watchmaker for a day" organized at the Romanian Academy of Watchmaking.

Created under the guidance of the master watchmaker Mihai Ceciu (Horologivm) and in association with the entrepreneur Florin Niculescu (Tavannes Watch) and Ion Schiau (Albini Prassa) as co-founders, the revolutionary Romanian Academy of Watchmaking (ARC) in Romania reaches a new level. Together, we founded the first watchmaking school of this kind in the country in the last 30 years, dedicated to educating young students and shaping the future of watchmaking.

On April 22, ARC, the location chosen for this occasion, hosted the first course "Be a watchmaker for a day". This exciting initiative aims to present the school's offerings, while offering watch enthusiasts a unique opportunity to assemble a watch under real conditions. The course included 12 work tables for watchmakers, offering participants an immersive experience in the exciting world of watchmaking.

For the first course, Albini Prassa provided the limited edition "Sageata Orientului" watch, adding an extra level of challenge and excitement for the audience present. The opportunity to work with such a remarkable watch was a testimony to the passion and dedication of the participants, among whom was His Excellency, the Swiss Ambassador Arthur Mattli, who honored the event with his presence as a special guest.

ARC differentiates itself by implementing a comprehensive dual system, which combines both apprenticeship and formal studies. This innovative approach ensures that students receive a well-rounded education, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in the watchmaking industry. The "Be a Watchmaker for a Day" courses contribute directly to the school's success, with all revenue generated being used to support its mission.

To be aware of the latest news and updates from ARC, you can follow us on Facebook and Instagram. We are excited to announce that the next "Be a Watchmaker for a Day" course is scheduled for the summer of 2023. Watch enthusiasts and aspiring watchmakers are encouraged to stay tuned for more details and registration information as they become available.

Albini Prassa, together with master watchmaker Mihai Ceciu and entrepreneur Florin Niculescu, are proud to lead the recovery of education in the field of watchmaking in Romania. Through their unwavering commitment and shared passion for watchmaking, the ARC co-founders are shaping the future of watchmaking and empowering the next generation of skilled watchmakers.
