What Makes FTS Technicians Unique?

First off, you might be wondering what the difference is between a watchmaker and a watch Technician. The easiest way to put it is that watchmakers specialize in conducting repairs and maintenance and require an investigative outlook on their work while watch technicians specialize in the actual manufacturing of new watches and develop a specific skill-set endemic to producing watches at commercial-level quantities to the highest industry standards.

At FTS, our technicians are regularly engaged in ongoing training to hone their existing skills, develop new techniques, and maximize efficiency without sacrificing quality. Trained by our CMW21 (certified Master Watchmaker 21st century) watchmaker, our team of technicians benefit from the scope of knowledge developed by our Chief Technical Officer over decades of service, repair, and restoration of a broad scope of Swiss & Japanese movements including chronographs and other complications.

Our technicians efficiently assemble watches and movements with uncompromising quality in high volume with the finesse and problem solving skills of a watchmaker is what really sets our technicians apart.

We are proud of the team we have built and would not be able to fulfill our mission to reshore American watchmaking without these key members of the FTS team. Every time another watch built by FTS is sold by one of our partner brands, it bolsters the pride within our technicians as much as it supports the return of American Watchmaking. As the saying goes; “a rising tide lifts all ships”. When a consumer buys a watch built by FTS and/or uses an Ameriquartz or Americhron movement, American Watchmaking is bolstered, as is the spirit of our dedicated team of technicians.

Make sure to look at the growing list of Americhron and Ameriquartz movement options for your next project.
