VALUING OUR PEOPLE
The Scheufele Family has always recognized the importance of supporting Chopard's watch and jewelry-making traditions and thus, of training future generations. Chopard created the first jewelry-training unit in 1980, followed by a dedicated watchmaking school in Fleurier.
Chopard opts for highly comprehensive apprenticeship programs in order to develop the necessary watch and jewelry professional skills. Each year the Maison trains about 40 apprentices in the following fields: jewelry, watchmaking, polymechanical, micromechanical 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 in jewelry and watchmaking.
