Your Teacher

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


This 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.

The Basics

  • Work Environment
  • Tools & Products Required
  • The Movement & Case



Once you have completed the basic level, you will receive a certificate of completion and you will have the opportunity to progress.

With the first level of this course you will have a full understanding of how a watch is constructed and works, the tools and products required and an optimal working environment.

The next level course will introduce you to working with your tools  in order to strip down and re-assemble a basic mechanical watch.


For each level of the course you will complete an assessment of the knowledge you have gained throughout the lessons.

Once you have achieved a passing grade of 80% or more, you will be presented with a certificate of completion which you can download, print and keep.

A Unique Course

Up until now, the entry point into watch repair has been either through apprenticeship, self learning via books, or entry to a Horology course with a technical college. Whilst I believe apprenticeship is the absolute best way to learn this trade, opportunities are getting more and more rare. Many college courses are being scrapped due to lack of teachers or lack of students. I hate to say it, but watch repair, and indeed Horology as a subject is simply not well promoted to school students as a viable career option.

There are several high end courses available to the lucky few, W.O.S.T.E.P as an example, but these courses are notoriously difficult to gain entry, with many places being reserved for students sponsored by one of the large watch houses.

There are also many fantastic book resources available for learning watch repair techniques and these should absolutely not be overlooked. It is very important to learn from the masters of past. However, many of these books are very dated and do not come close to covering modern watch calibers, tools and techniques.

This course is very unique in that it discusses tools and watch repair techniques in a modern way, high definition crystal clear video which can be streamed directly to your computer, cellphone or tablet.


Online Learning

With this unique watch repair course, you will be able to learn the craft at your own pace, in the comfort of your home. All lessons are crystal clear. Great care and attention has been put into the production of the videos in regards to focus and clarity. This has been made possible by the investment of high quality camera equipment.

Mark Lovick has been producing and publishing high quality watch repair video content on YouTube for several years and gained quite a bit of experience in making clear and concise points, illustrated with the high definition macro photography.
