There were a couple of guys over on the WTF forum that sent their watches (including an Accutron) into the school for the students there to work on and both were quite happy with the results. Sounds like a good course and for me, much more useful than some of the college courses offered such as 'Interpreting the Art of Eastern Kazakhstan' etc...


No kidding! You would love it mikey, I know it! I feel this a once in a lifetime experience, seriously. The first day only 2 new students plus moi. There were several others students for follow on 2-3 quarter sessions. I arrived and it looked like a something out of a Harry Potter movie . All the different clocks that students had on at the benches, I felt like I stepped back in time. The instructors gave a brief overview, indicated that this clock course was the only one of it's kind in the country. The only formal watch repair classes are Rolex sponsored in Seattle and Pennsylvania. Unless you get a apprenticeship under a watchmaker/clockmaker, theses courses are pretty much it.

Aqualung, my friend, don't you start away uneasy You poor old sod, you see it's only me
