The art of making clocks and watches is known as horology, and watchmaking truly is an art as well as a craft. Watchmaking itself requires strong mechanical reasoning skills. To create a watch movement, the watchmaker must be able to correctly place a myriad of gears and a mainspring in their proper positions. Also, a watchmaker needs good manual dexterity, including a well-developed sense of touch, and keen eyesight to manipulate dozens of extremely small components with jewel-like precision.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Watchmaking and watch repair require a clean working environment, mainly because even very small particles of dust and dirt can befoul a watch movement. Customers that appreciate mechanical watches are frequently attached to their timepieces, so watchmakers must have good communication and customer service skills. Watchmakers are also expected to keep detailed records of their work and have an ability to correctly estimate repair costs. Additionally, watchmakers must be able to refinish cases and repair or replace glass watch face coverings.
This is a long-term career position. Stability in previous work history is a must.
We offer health insurance and 401K benefits (Match and Profit Sharing).
Job Type: Full-time
Watchmaking: 5 years
