That's my watch guy. He currently has 2 Swiss trained watcmakers at the shop and is the only Oris authorized SC in the US. Looks like a good move for him. Anyone with interest will get much better training that your typical mall/jewelry store tech. and will be trained by pros and have an opportunity to learn the trade if desired.
It's also comforting for me to know that when Steve is overhauling my Omega GMT (he did last year), or doing some other work requiring the steady hands of a master watchmaker, he won't be interrupted by battery changes and bracelet sizings.

Pay isn't gonna make anyone rich but is probably par for the course for this work at an entry level.

Getting paid to apprentice is an exception and whomever he hires will have a long and profitable career.
