THE 21ST CENTURY WORKSHOP
As seen in Horological Times
Mackenzie Nesbit is a fourth generation watchmaker and employee of Nesbit's Fine Watch Service. He has an AWCI CW21 certification and is also WOSTEP certified. The current shop has been in business for more than 20 years, but his family has been in the business since 1885. Horological Times asked Mackenzie to draw from his extensive experience, taking us on a tour of his modernized workshop.
According to Nesbit, the CW21 certification is industry- recognized and provides assurance to his customers. The 4-day examination includes theoretical, practical and micromechanical applications, which are skills all professional watchmakers should posses. However, he believes certification is much more than just a piece of paper to put on display; rather, it's a "way of life" for the contemporary watchmaker. In addition, the 21st century watchmaker must make sure their appearance and the organization of their workshop reflects the quality and skill they put into every repair.
