About the Event

Are you looking to start your education in watchmaking?  Are you a collector who has always wanted to try watchmaking?  Do you work in the industry, but you’ve never sat down behind the bench? 

Well, this is your chance!

The AWCI Introduction to Watchmaking course is the best way for beginners, collectors, sales people, and more to get their start.  This weekend class is a crash course on watchmaking.  You will learn to disassemble and reassemble a 6498 movement, learn about lubrication, screw tightness, cleaning, regulating, and much more.

You’ll also have the opportunity to wear the watch you built, right out of the classroom!

Before attending, students are recommended to study Theory of Horology and be familiar with the basic nomenclature of watchmaking.

Instructor: Aaron Recksiek, CW21
