Hi all!

I'm located in NYC and am learning watchmaking. I'm currently an apprentice by an old school watchmaker.

While I'm definitely learning a lot, I believe I am not getting to where I should be. For example; I have no clue what the different watch parts are called even though I work with them on a daily bases.  

If anyone can recommend either a book, online course, or maybe even a low paying watchmaker position at a busy location in NY (I can do complete overhauls on simple movements), I would greatly appreciate it.

Otherwise just wish me luck!

Thank you for your introduction and welcome to this friendly forum.

This will help you for the different named parts for a watch. If you are serving an apprenticeship you should ask your master to tell you the parts and what they do. Doesn't he have any books for you to borrow.

Thank you for welcoming me and for sharing the attachment!

He doesn't really have books. He earned watchmaking about 70 years ago, whatever names he does know he has a problem translating to English....
