If you've ever thought about becoming a watchmaker, now's a great time to jump in the game. The mechanical watch industry is on fire but there's a severe shortage of quality watchmakers to service these increasingly complicated pieces. More watchmakers are retiring than those coming into the workforce. On top of that, watches themselves are more and more complicated requiring a level of skill and expertise not needed just a few years ago. As these watches need service, who is going to service them?
If you are interested, the Nicolas G. Hayek Watchmaking Schools are one example of where you can get a WOSTEP (Watchmakers of Switzerland Training and Educational Program) education.
