Need a Watchmaker?

We continue our list of recertified AWI members

To help readers in need of qualified watch repair, we began three months ago to list members of the American Watchmaker-Clockmakers Institute who recertified through March 2000.

Certified members must recertify in five-year cycles by passing a test, attending lectures, taking bench courses, reading pertinent literature and publishing an article in Horological Times.

AWI offers six credentials: Certified Watchmaker (CW), Certified Master Watchmaker (CMW), Certified Electronic Watch Technician (CEWT), Certified Master Electronic Watchmaker (CMEW), Certified Clockmaker (CC) and Certified Master Clockmaker (CMC).
