AWCI is committed to providing the best education possible for watchmakers and clockmakers. Unfortunately the Internet is full of videos demonstrating improper and sometimes damaging techniques. Additionally, some topics can't be conveyed well by video. We have produced many videos covering topics we feel can be presented well by this media.

Please enjoy the videos below. They are a combination of videos we have produced along with videos produced by REC schools and others. All of these videos present techniques compatible with the high standards we promote. We hope they help you become a better horologist.

More videos can be purchased on DVD from our online store.
