Finally - it's set and ready to go

Thanks to your interest, and trying to accommodate your demands, we've finally got the dates for the Watchmaker's courses to be held in the coming weeks.

But before we go any further, here is the answer to the most commonly asked question: are the watchmaking courses for me?

The answer is - absolutely yes!

Actually both W1.0 and W2.0 are designed specifically for you - "an enthusiastic watch enthusiast". If you have good eyesight, basic manual skills and attention to detail,  you will have the time of your life.  In just a few hours, over the period of one month, you will get a taste of what horology is all about, what makes the watch tick; how to disassemble and assemble both quartz and mechanical timepieces, and much more .  Your watch will never look the same again, and your appreciation for precision and workmanship will increase exponentially.

Class Dates:  

W1.0 - Four Tuesday evenings in May, starting at 5:30 pm.

W2.0A - Four Tuesday evenings in April, starting at 5:30 pm

W2.0B - All day workshop 9 am to 6pm Sunday, April 14th.

Please read carefully.

W1.0 is an entry level course.  The timepieces/watch movements you will be working on are provided.  However, you would need to invest in your set of tools which are available from:

We will cover a number of topics - from how to sharpen and shape screwdrivers to the complete disassembly and reassembly of both quartz and mechanical manual wind watch mechanisms. It will be an exciting mix of 30% theory and 70% bench time. We also encourage you to setup your small work space at home. Tutoring fee:  $400.

W2.0A is a course focusing on the Seiko SKX divers watch, fitted with the 7S26 automatic mechanism. This course will cover complete step by step disassembly and reassembly of the Seiko, as well as time keeping adjustments. You will also learn cleaning, lubrication, water resistance testing, and jewelling.  This course is run over four evenings, 2 hours per session.  You will be required to buy our 2.0 tool set:

Having a Seiko 7S26 movement watch is absolutely essential - either your own or, optionally, you can buy one from us for $490 (brand new original Japanese made). Tutoring fee:  $490.

W2.0B is a full day course specifically organised for non-Sydney students. The topic and requirements are the same as for W2.0A.  The course will be held on Sunday 14 April, starting at 9:00am, lasting all day - until we're finished.  

Seats are strictly limited to 5 students for all classes. Please contact us ASAP to book. Note: buying a tool kit or Seiko watch does not automatically entitle you to the course – so, please, contact us first.  Tutoring fee:  $490
