Future of the Swiss Watch Aftersales Service.
Average age of watchmakers/technicians in the Swiss watch service industry or SAV (SERVICE APRÈS-VENTE), as its officially known in Switzerland, is more than 60 years of age. In the coming 10 years, as these veterans retire, the industry will not have enough newcomers to fill in the blanks. This problem is made worse by the lack of interest, among young people, to enter the trade. Add to the cost of travelling to Switzerland to attend trainings and the now closed-door approach of training only own group hired technicians means its a dead end moving ahead.
We hope to be able to garner enough industry support to set up a training facility locally here in Singapore to interest and train the next generation of young watch technicians to continue to SAV business. Only by pooling together resources and having a school based in Singapore to train the Asia market can we have a chance in the future of watch SERVICE APRÈS-VENTE.
