Welcome to our regular Sunday feature, Watch Video Rewind, where we get to share interesting (hopefully) videos related to watches and watchmaking. This week, I thought that I would pull together a couple of video in honor of recent and impending graduates. Maybe you don’t have a career path lined up. Well, how about watchmaking?
I will start this week’s Watch Video Rewind off with a bit of history, a 1945 Newsreel about Bulova’s school of watchmakers that was opened up for disabled veterans from WWII.
Next up is a tour of the WOSTEP Swiss Watchmaking school, put together by the WatchesTV
Want to work on some very nice watches. Very nice ones. Patek Phillipe was looking for watchmakers that could work on their watches, so they started a training program in New York City, with successful graduates moving on to work for the company as repair technicians.
Finally, you have trained and studied to be a watchmaker, what are you going to do? How about be like Cameron Weiss and move back to Los Angeles and start your own watch company?
That’s it for this week’s edition of Watch Video Rewind. If you stumble across any interesting watch (or time) related videos out there, or if you make your own Watch Story, drop us a line. If we end up using in the watch video rewind from your suggestion, we’ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
