In those days there was an abundent supply of accessable and affordable watch schools. Judging from what I have seen in the CHICAGO SCHOOL OF WATCHMAKING curriculum these schools were quite good. There were also many watch repair schools in colleges. Today, there only a few of them left and they are in large part funded by SWATCH, ROLEX. and a few other large watch factories. Their agenda is largely to provide a supply of technicians to work in factory repair centers disassembling, cleaning and reassembling, with an occasional part replacement provided by the factory that owns that particular service center. These companies will not release repair or replacement parts to anyone outside of their repair centers. Mark Lovick commented on this on one of his videos in the comment section. They won’t even sell parts to him.
