Watchmakers Tools CEO Simon Freeso is the perfect choice for WATCHMarks’ apprentice apprentice.
The 35-year-old Freese, who has been with WATCHMakes for three years, is a seasoned executive who has previously worked for global brands such as BMW, Rolex, Rolexa and Hermès.
He is a leader in his field and has a unique perspective on the way to succeed in the watchmaking industry, he said.
He knows that the world of watchmaking is changing rapidly and the apprenticeship is just one part of the process.
I think I will do my best and make the apprentices feel that they are a part of a team and they are being taken seriously, Freese said.
It is the right time for me and my team to work with young apprentices, he added.
We need a watchmaker to help the apprentices understand what is expected of them, he told WatchMaker.
The apprentices are responsible for their own production and the whole project.
They are responsible to get the product in order and to take care of the customer.
It is a very tough job but I can’t wait to get started.
The apprentice has to be able to work independently, Freesos said.
We are trying to give them a sense of control, he continued.
I am going to get as much out of them as I can.
I have to work very hard, and I have to take my time.
We are going to put them in a position to succeed.
We want to give you the best of the best.
It’s the same as in any other company.
It can be a bit more difficult than other companies.
But he said that he is a good apprentice because he is in the industry and knows what he wants.
I would not have the opportunity to go into watchmaking if I did not have watchmakers who know what they are doing.
I can learn from them, but it will not be the same for everyone, he stressed.
I like the idea of being a watch maker and having my own company, he explained.
I can also give back to the community in a very positive way.
The apprentices will have to do their best and earn their keep, Freisesos said, adding that it will take a few weeks before they can take on the role.
He said that the apprentices will learn about watchmaking and watchmaking history and culture, including watchmaking tools.
The company’s apprenticeship will last between two and three months and will be followed by the apprentices being tested and certified by the Watchmakers Council, he noted.
The WATCHMakings Council has been running watchmaker apprenticeships for the past two years.
WATCHMasters has a track record of offering apprenticeship opportunities.
