Institute of Swiss Watchmaking

The ever-increasing demand for luxury watches translates into a growing demand for qualified craftsmen and women to service these products. To help meeting this demand, the Institute of Swiss Watchmaking was founded in 2008 by Richemont to provide dedicated, career-minded individuals with the education and training to become a part of this exciting profession.

Three schools based in Dallas (NAIOSW - North American Institute of Swiss Watchmaking), Hong Kong (HKIOSW - Hong Kong Institute of Swiss Watchmaking) and Shanghai (CNIOSW – China Institute of Swiss Watchmaking) were opened between 2009 and 2011. These schools prepare students for the internationally recognized WOSTEP certification, a symbol of "Swiss Made" excellence in this field.

Montblanc’s partnership with the IOSW is a valuable complement to its training policy. The goal is to develop and maintain, on a worldwide basis, a combination of know-how and expertise in the field of high-end watchmaking that will enable the brand to offer its customers high-quality local service.
