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.
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.
