    Apprenticeship

    I just talked to my local watchmaker. He has done a lot of work for me and today he asked me if Id want to be an apprentice! So, starting next week, Ill be spending every Friday learning how to clean and service watches. Im stoked.

    Be sure to check out some of the classes offered by the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute. They have a 5-day Introduction to Watchmaking class that would be perfect for you now.
