Online Watchmaking offers online courses for
those interested in learning the basics of watchmaking:

The course materials are entirely online, so you can take the course anywhere in the world where you have internet access. Once you enroll, you will receive a user name and a password to access the Level you signed up for. You can view the lessons at your leisure, and print them out if you like.  

These courses do not cover sufficient ground to allow you to begin diagnosing problems and repairing broken watches. The courses are intended to give you a good appreciation for basic watchmaking tools and skills, and for simple mechanical watch movements.  Please contact if you desire to learn more about watchmaking after completing the TZ Watch School courses.
