It contains hands-on practice in component definition, part handling,disassembly, cleaning, assembly, minor troubleshooting and testing. Most students should have time to work on more than one watch during the four-day session. Pocket Watch Movement Requirements for F301 IMPORTANT: The only type watch the student can use in this class is a size 16-18, 7-17 jewels, American-made Elgin, Waltham, Illinois or Hamilton operating (it must be running) pocket watch. Some watch movements from these companies were NOT made in America and they are not acceptable for this class. These watch movements can be purchased at NAWCC Regional or Chapter meetings. If you have any questions about the movement for this class you can call your Coordinator, FSW Administrator or your Instructor.
