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.

As God is my witness, I'd take a position like that and do freelance in my current job until my skills were up to snuff.

WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
