Mark is a Swiss Trained professional Watchmaker. He graduated with honors from WOSTEP (Watchmakers of Switzerland Training and Education Program, Neuchatel, Switzerland), an internationally known school for horology, recognized by the industry. He has also received his Certified Watchmaker 21 and Certified Clockmaker by American Watchmaker – Clockmaker’s Institute (AWCI).
Since 1991, Mark has specialized in the service and restoration of high grade and complicated timepieces with a specific focus on vintage Breitling timepieces. He is also experienced in the discipline of clockmaking, having trained for 3 years under his father. This greatly facilitates the service and restoration of complicated or high-grade clocks, such as Atmos, and those without pendulum (balance wheel and hairspring instead) such as French carriage clocks, small desk clocks and aircraft clocks.
Mark is a member of the Central Watchmakers Guild of Pennsylvania, National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC) and American Watchmakers – Clockmaker’s Institute (AWCI). He also has served as an assessor for WOSTEP’s Partnership Schools for final examinations in the U.S. and for AWCI’s certification exams.
Theresa graduated with honors from West Chester University with a degree in Speech and Communication, with a focus on Business Administration. She handles all administrative duties in the office such as scheduling and processing of watches, spare parts orders, communication and maintains the smooth operation of the workshop.
In 1990 – 91, Mark and Theresa set up and helped organize the After Sales Service facility for Ebel Caribbean, St. Martin F.W.I. Afterward, were employed by Breitling USA in the After Sales Service Department from 1991 to 1994. As the “new” Breitling became better known, more of the older watches came in for service. By 1994, Mark and Theresa were working completely independently from Breitling USA, exclusively providing service/restoration for their vintage, or out of production mechanical watches.
