VALUING OUR PEOPLE
The Scheufele Family recognizes the importance of training future generations to ensure that the Chopard watch and jewelry-making traditions are upheld. Our Maison created the first jewelry-training unit in 1980, followed by a dedicated watchmaking school in Fleurier, Switzerland.
Our apprenticeship programs must be highly comprehensive in order to develop the necessary watch and jewelry professional skills. Each year we train some 40 apprentices in the following fields: jewelry, watchmaking, polymechanics, micromechanics and surface finishing.
The State of Geneva has recognized our efforts by granting us the “Best Training Company Prize” in the “Applied Arts” category. Furthermore, two of our apprentices were recently rewarded by the State of Geneva for the best apprenticeship results in jewelry and watchmaking.
