Having stayed in Paris for a few weeks I decided to take some watchmaking training at Cap Horlogerie (Atelier Parisien d'Horlogerie) who has a program (8 hours) for beginners.

The good thing is that, at the end of the day, the watch you have assembled and checked on TimeGrapher is all yours. Of course the dial has no-name and no-logo.

Movement: Swiss ETA (Unitas 6497-1) type "skeleton Art Déco Paris 1930".

Case: SS 316L + PVD, made in Switzerland.
Band: Real leather + rubber, made in Austria.

That's very nice, and for ..." Eight Hours ", a winner.
Agree with meanmoose, over here I have to learn of the
internet . Hahaha
Find a broken one of the Bay, that's the only course available yet here.
What was the course price range ?

Modding and/or custom building with ETA movement

Why leasing a place to run such a Cap Horlogerie program in the US?

May be there would be a possibility to operate from an RV parked across the street from 12 East 57th Street in New York (I really don't like Tourneau....)?

Modding an ETA movement watch

Cap Horlogerie "modding" program is in French but could be in English when required.

Apparently they have received request from Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.

The owners told me they would like to try their concept in the US.
