The career path of watchmaking is not often leaving children out of school. Before we knew it, we went straight to the university or the world watch industry that did not recognize it. These days, I am so ingrained in the watch industry, I am dizzy when people express surprises, assembly and after-sales processes are made by real humans, not super high precision machines. But you don’t have to spend too much time on the knees to understand why the old watchmakers. The mechanism for generating low producers is different. It’s not about intricacies, it’s itself, it’s experience; it’s about all stupid little things, irrational meaning; in a nutshell, it’s about time. Cheap Patek Philippe Replica Watches has highlighted their understanding of this fact by investing in a field service center school in New York.
By running a two-year course, known as the Patek Philippe Watchmaking New York program, the focus is on the internal movements of the skills needed to provide services and repairs for new students, and they are doing something to fill the huge gap in the well-trained watchmakers in North America. Find out more about the school, the foundation of motivation, its development and hopes for Patek Philippe Replica Watches, I and Larry Pettinelli President Henry Stern Watch Agency (HSWA), Patek Philippe subsidiary distribution and repair Patek Philippe watches in the US
The watch industry has grown steadily since 1989. The appeal of these forever luxury and complex products is universal, but their production is very local in central Europe. In the past, the United States had its own reputation as a watchmaking industry. Hamilton and Elgin time brands are cross-continental early due to the system, but these companies are reborn before the tools are laid down.
With the recovery of the industry, North American neccessery experts are gone. This country is dependent on several schools across the country, producing about 40 or 50 graduates a year. These, perhaps only 10%, will make all employees’ achievements, Patek Philippe needs. At present, the US service team is less than 20 in Fake Patek Philippe Watches, handling nearly 10,000 repairs per year. The workload is unsustainable given that the strict standard brand watch manufacturers meet the requirements. This shortage of skills means that Patek Philippe is constantly looking for new experts, but they are hard to find. The 13 watch manufacturers, last year’s bench test, only two were considered good enough inside the company, regardless of their desperation to increase manpower.
This is because Patek Philippe’s intrinsic quality is the success of the brand’s reputation. Larry Pettinelli needs a watch and there is no risk of compelling his brand’s 176-year history. Continuing such a reputation is not easy when your customers often pass your product under a magnifying glass. Excellence is imperative. But excellence does not last long on the tree (it grows in the workshop with patience and enthusiasm for tuition under the main watchmaker). So Pettinelli started planting seeds to grow into a plan for the Patek Philippe Watch Industry in New York.
The training school, which is the Rockefeller base set up in Patek Philippe’s workshop space, was framed this year and has just opened the top six students. The course lasts for two years (3,100 hours) and will eventually take the student to Switzerland to take the Patek Philippe Replica Level 2 exam. Two years after winning this certificate will be a great achievement, perhaps signaling, a long and rewarding career with the arrival of one of the Swiss powers. But this is not static…
I was surprised to find that the course structure is good for students. In Europe, I know that there are two ways to achieve WOSTEP qualification: you either find a sponsor through the course company, or your own fund. The cost is not cheap – certainly not affordable high school graduates, or ordinary college students. So the vast majority of major companies that apply for sponsorship. Once obtained, the sponsor pays the student’s nominal salary in their study and then insists that they repay the investment work within the time specified by the sponsoring company (usually the length of the course is the same, although this can be negotiable). If you fail, you can bear the cost; if you quit earlier your debt “repays” your sponsor, they have the legal right to chase your balance. In short, your long-term registration and cross-overly dexterous fingers, everything works fine.
The course offered by Patek Philippe Watchmaking New York is not the same case for its students. Courses are fully funded by students who provide bursaries to pay for a fee that may be incurred due to their attendance. Of course, you must find a way to support yourself throughout the duration of the course, but this is no different from most college students, spending some time working, borrowing people, or staying with their friends or family.
In the selection process, a potential student claimed that she only participated in the roving seminar because she was certain that the quotation was a scam. There is a point of view with her: the opportunity of European-trained watchmakers to study work in a competitor that has to be rejected below market wages and wants to dig away pre-trained talent seems unbelievably good. If the last two years of the course, the students decided to leave, this is cool; if they want to learn their skills from another company, this is also very good. Why does Swiss Patek Philippe Watches take this risk? This is because they think the potential reward is worthwhile.
They are experts, confident, and a member of the learning workshop team, immersed in the culture and history of the brand, they will choose to stay. It takes courage to give students such an institution, but the trust and respect of the students, I think, is more likely to repay it for hard work and loyalty.
One of the main focuses of the interview process is to understand the motivation of the candidate. In my opinion, the best way for Patek Philippe to approach the process. Watches are a strange profession. Almost with a supernatural patience, detailed indefatigable eyes, and a very similar task for comfort, one day. But it also needs a kind of wisdom – not necessarily academic intelligence, but a logical and comprehensive thinking. It also helps to have a good memory on the bench, and you will have the most useful textbooks you can have. The interview process is conducted in face-to-face exams, as well as logical and mathematical tests.
What really impressed Pettinelli’s approach, however, the way selectors focus on how the test is approaching and the processing pressure of the candidate asking questions, rather than giving the answer.
The first two and a half years of the course will focus on traditional watchmaking technology, using advanced equipment already installed on Patek Philippe’s website. Students will be asked to make some of their own skills as a learning tool and spend a lot of time studying horology theory. The course will teach Laurent Junod, former workshop director at the New York Service Center. Junod himself is very suitable for this job. In 1988 he moved to the United States to see a part of a different world. He likes the United States very much and never leaves. He is a four-level Patek Philippe watch manufacturer that brings decades of experience to the classroom. Patek Philippe aims to restore any foundation that has been seen since 1839. In his time with the company, Laurent Junod has seen many historical films through his hands. This is an invaluable practical experience. People who are unable to synthesize testimony have been the way to do Junod there. The loss of the workshop is the gain of the school. With Junod as the current student’s mentor and a bridge, the company can confidently flow from one generation to another.
Let us take a closer look at the details. I believe that you all want to know that you can apply for a position in the Patek Philippe Watch Industry in New York. Ok, now, you can’t. Six successful candidates from this app process have just started their two-year course, which will be performed by one person (Junod). There is a possibility that the plan will expand in the future, but now, Pettinelli wants to focus on getting this experiment. Their course structure is based on pre-existing Patek Philippe in Shanghai. The first Shanghai course graduates began to work in the workshop and seemed to have been sent to repairs. This heralds the plan of the United States. Pettinelli wants to open more training centers, but one of the main problems is finding sneakers!
Even if there is no sense of drowning and pleading, Patek Philippe is inspiring to know that you want to pursue a watch as a profession, and you don’t have to have any prior contacts with this industry to be a valid candidate. The six successful applicants all came from different backgrounds. Most applicants dropped between -35 and even split men and women (six choices, four for men, and two for women). Of course, it helps to get familiar with the actual work. Sewing, carpentry, electronics… Any precision and concentration will put you in a better position. If you want to be a suitable candidate, focus more on why you want to be a watchmaker. What makes you hook? Patek Philippe wants to train the love of horological learning that forces them to submit their lives and popular careers.
This school is a real opportunity, especially for American students, or based on existing US work permits. There are no cultural boundaries in Patek Philippe, but difficulties in obtaining work permits and visas may delay international applicants.
