HE Olympic stadium now proudly displays the largest time-piece in Cambodia, a
huge Seiko analog clock.
In an unveiling ceremony held on June 21 Thakral
Cambodia Limited, the exclusive sellers of Seiko watches in Cambodia, presented
the clock to the Under Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports,
Pou Darany. The Ministry is responsible for maintaining and improving the
facilities at the stadium.
Service technician with Thakral Limited S.B.
Sandanan said the clock, which faces west, was donated by the Japanese Seiko
watch company to Cambodia and was put up between May 16 and 25.
the company was also planning to build three other clocks at the stadium facing
north, south and east, but would firstly monitor the security situation there.
"We put up this clock partly as an experiment to see if the situation was safe,
to know whether thieves would steal the clock. If the security is good we will
put up other clocks also for free."
