The Scheufele family has always paid great attention to supporting the watch and jewellery-making traditions and, thus, to training future generations. Consistent with the brand’s values and in a willingness to safeguard and pass on our know-how, the company created the first jewellery-training unit in 1980 in Meyrin. This was followed by variety of different units, such as a dedicated watchmaking school in Fleurier.Chopard opts for highly comprehensive apprenticeship programmes, that preserve watch and jewellery professional skills. Each year, we recruit about 10 new apprentices. These young adults are supervised by an apprenticeship master who follows them throughout their four-year course. Each year the Maison trains about 40 apprentices in the following fields: jewellery, watchmaking, polymechanical, micromechanical and surface finishing.
