Who has taken the watchrepairlessons courses?

Recommended Posts

As I'm tyring to figure out the proper tools and location (room, desk...kitchen table ain't gonna cut it), I'm curious about Mark's lesson videos.  His free content on YT is already top notch, but I assume the classes get into depth and detail.

I'm new to this, after years of interest.  I would like, at the very least, to be able to learn the skills to become at least decent at watchmaking.  I've looked into the NAIOSW school in Dallas, however, that program is booked until June 2021.

If you read around this forum various people have vouched for the value of Mark's training. And add me to them.

I think that if you just watch the lessons, well you know how calm and demonstrative that Mark can be. I guess to get the most value you would have to be hands on and follow along. But the cost of tools and scrap movements, lubricants and a work area hmm. I suppose if you bought a $5000 motorcycle would a $250 community college course on how to ride the thing be worth it? You bet it would.

But if you were determined half a kitchen table and a couple hundred dollars worth of ebay tools would allow you to find out for sure. Can you actually manipulate screws that are like specks of dust to the naked eye? and if you find out you like that sort of thing you could get miles ahead of those folks who are waiting till next summer. Super valuable I think.
