Watchmakers will be available for questions and any media or professional communication.

“There is no comparison to the classes I’ve taken with Tom Schomaker at AWCI. After many years in the industry I was surprised at what I had forgotten over time, and amazed at all that I learned. I’m really glad that I chose to take them.”

“There is a high barrier for entry in the watchmaking industry, and I feel like AWCI does a great job of encouraging and supporting everyone in class at every skill level.”
