Watchmakers are in high demand around the world, and many brands have opened their own schools to ensure they have the horological talent necessary to grow their businesses. Glashütte Original's Alfred Helwig School of Watchmaking recently welcomed 26 new students to their state-of-the art facility.
The Alfred Helwig School teaches both watchmaking and toolmaking in three and three and a half year sessions, respectively. 22 of the 26 new students will focus on watchmaking; the other 4 will focus on toolmaking. With the new class, the school now has 80 students in total under its roof. Graduates will receive a German skilled worker certificate, and have an opportunity to take the WOSTEP exam in order to to receive their WOSTEP diploma.
Glashütte Original is now looking for students wishing to attend their next class, starting in 2016. If you are interested, visit their website for more information.
