The skills of our graduates

Theory of Horology

A hands-on, single session class taught by professional watchmakers. Students learn how a mechanical watch movement works and proper usage of watchmaking tools. Finally, students disassemble and reassemble a mechanical watch movement. No previous experience is required.

HOROLOGY 102: GEAR TRAIN

An in-depth look at the gear train, covering terminology, functionality and theory. Students learn the mathematics that determine the beat rate of a watch, as well as the difference in tooth profiles seen in modern horology. Students will work on the gear train of a mechanical watch movement to see how the theories apply to real life mechanics. Horology 101 is the prerequisite for this class.

Horology 103: WINDING & SETTING WORKS

Covers the functionality and adjustment of these important mechanisms. Students will work on the winding and setting works of a mechanical watch movement to gain a real-world understanding of how they work. Horology 101 is the prerequisite for this class.

Horology 104: ESCAPEMENT

Spends time examining what makes a mechanical watch movement tick. Through the use of oversized instructional models and escapements in a mechanical watch movement, students learn the specifics of how the lever escapement functions. Horology 101 is the prerequisite for this class.
