Build A Watch


Our next Build A Watch class:

July 16-18, National Museum of Clocks & Watches, Columbia, PA

Are you looking to start your education in watchmaking?  Are you a collector who has always wanted to try watchmaking?  Do you work in the industry, but you've never sat down behind the bench? 

Well, this is your chance!

AWCI has created a series of events to help you experience the world of watchmaking.

The AWCI Introduction to Watchmaking course is the most complete experience and the best choice for individuals who think they may want to repair their own timepieces or are considering a career in watchmaking. Our Wonderland Experiences are shorter classes, but equally exciting!

In all of the events, you will have the opportunity to wear the watch you built, right out of the classroom!


3 Different Experiences



Wonderland is a day of watchmaking guided by our highly skilled watchmaking instructors.

You will assemble the ETA 6497 movement, lubricate the moving parts, install a dial and hands, and case up your very own watch.
