Post by koimaster » August 2nd 2019, 9:21am

Originally a jewellery design school established in 1966, the watchmaking courses were launched in 1997. Today there are approximately 150 students in the process of studying watchmaking. There are 2 courses of 2- and 3-year durations. The longer course includes learning about chronographs, and the students are required to take and personalise a large caliber movement, (examples are shown below). In total there are 14 teachers in Tokyo. In addition, there is a second watchmaking school connected with the college based in Osaka with an additional 30 students and 3 teachers.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
