Watch Repairers - Working Conditions

In a typical work setting, watch repairers:

Interpersonal Relationships

  • Have a medium level of social contact. They talk with customers in person throughout the day, but also spend time working by themselves.
  • Are somewhat responsible for the work done by other repairers or assistants.
  • Communicate with others by telephone or in person.

Physical Work Conditions

  • Always work indoors.
  • Are sometimes exposed to hazardous situations that might produce cuts or scrapes.
  • Are occasionally exposed to contaminants.

Work Performance

  • Must fully complete and be exact in their work. This is to be sure timepieces keep accurate time.
  • Make decisions often that greatly impact customers and their company's profits. They rarely, if ever, consult another before making a decision.
  • Set their daily tasks and goals without consulting another.


  • Usually work 35 to 40 hours per week.
