A Master Watchmaker of Mechanical Complications Specialist must endure a minimum ten years of Swiss schooling and apprenticeships just to see at what level of expertise he or she will be comfortable at.
Inside Swiss borders a Master Watchmaker of Complications is considered to have a higher education than an Attorney at Law or even a Surgeon. Dan Spitz’ achievements as a Master Watchmaker and Master Watchmaker teacher are exemplary of some of the highest credentials on the planet. He has headed up all of Chopard Watchmaking for NA, Leviev Watchmaking for NA and SA as well as being the sole American Watchmaker to be allowed to work on all complications for Chopard. In addition, he was Chopard’s Watchmaking instructor for all Watchmakers and is a Watchmaker speaker for Watchmaking schools such as WOSTEP the premier global curriculum.
CNN has done a very interesting documentary on Dan Spitz Watchmaking that has globally reached 8 million people with approximately 1 million views on Facebook alone.
Dan Spitz was taught at WOSTEP, Neuchatel by the creator of the WOSTEP Watchmaking course himself, Antoine Simonin.
