A unique opportunity to become a watchmaker in Sydney

Nicholas Hacko is a third-generation Master watchmaker and the maker of Australia’s first manufactured wristwatch.  We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate person to join our team.  You will be trained as a watch technician in all aspects of watch repair, design, assembly, and watch manufacturing, and you will be trained directly by Nicholas Hacko.  A learning opportunity like this does not present itself often.  There are only a handful of watchmakers in Australia, and finding a Master willing to train and pass on his knowledge is quite uncommon.


(1)     Australian Citizenship – This position is open to Australian citizens only

(2)     Technical Background – We understand that the set of skills you have already developed reflect your age and previous experience.  While there is no specific pre-requirement in relation to your skills, either formal or practical experience in the field of mechanics would be viewed favourably.

(3)    Formal Education – We would consider any applicant, regardless of formal education, from 18 year old school leaver to mechanical engineers.

(4)    Long Term Commitment – Watchmaking is more than just a career.  It is a calling.  A long term commitment to our project is absolutely essential.


If we believe that you possess what it takes, we will invite you for an interview.  The next step of assessment would be a few days behind the work bench.  Thereafter, for the successful candidate there will be a three month probation period.


Since the first three years on the project would mainly relate to learning a new skill, your starting salary will be $36,000 per annum for the first year and $42,000 for the second year.  After the second year, you will be rewarded according to your developed skills and contribution to the overall project. Our expectation is that you will become more valuable as time goes by, which will reflect in your salary level.
