Each lesson will be presented by Mark Lovick, the founder and writer of this Watch Repair Course. Mark has been repairing watches since 1988.
For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed taking things apart, trying to work out how they work and then attempting to put them back together again, sometimes with success — other times, frustratingly, with not so much success.Mark Lovick
The watch repair course starts from the ground up. You will learn the absolute basics and gradually be moved on to more technical subjects. The first course ‘The Basics’ will cover just that.
Have you ever wanted to know more about what makes a watch tick? Perhaps you are a watch collector or enthusiast. Or perhaps you are thinking of making a career out of watch repair. My vision with the watch repair course is to make available the skills and techniques I have acquired over the years in a modern and exciting way – full high definition video lessons streamed directly to your computer, cellphone or tablet!Mark Lovick

…I got retrenched from my job in the IT Industry, and my position went to overseas workers. I saw the writing on the wall for the future in IT, and vowed not to continue in that field. I was looking for another career path, when I came across your YouTube Channel, and your excellent videos.
At first I just watched them for entertainment; but after a few months I decided to have a go myself. So I brought some basic tools, and a couple of cheap movements off Fleabay, and followed your steps in the videos. I found that I enjoyed it immensely, and that the Lord had blessed me with a talent in this vocation. So after some prayer, thought, and discussion with my family, decided to pursue it as my new career path.
I invested a few thousand dollars on a full range of tools, a desk, and a cleaning machine … and purchased many more varieties of movements online. I also joined your forum and started posting the “Self Training” I was doing, to reinforce my what I had learned, and to help others. I also begin “Cold Calling” every single Watch Repairer and Jeweler, asking if there was any positions for an apprentice watchmaker available.
Well, last week I got a call back from one of *******’s largest watch and jewelry retailers ‘*********’, and they asked me to come in for a “Skill Test”, as a position may be open. So on Tuesday and Wednesday this week I went in, and they ran me through the paces – both technical knowledge and practical hand skills. They were extremely impressed with the level of skill I showed, and my technical knowledge (LOTS of which I learnt from your videos). At the end of the second day they offered me an apprenticeship!! Praise the Lord!!
I just wanted to thank you for the time and effort you have taken editing and posting your videos, displaying the correct techniques, describing every part you handle, and explaining the oils and tools you use. All these facets of your videos helped me more than words can express, and for that I am so very grateful. I now have a new career path, working for a fantastic company … so it just goes to show mate, you never know just how much posting some videos online can affect the life of someone else on the other side of the planet 🙂
Kindest regards and gratitudePaul
