Maryland Watch Works (MWW) recently celebrated its grand opening as hundreds of watch connoisseurs traveled to Hagerstown for the Wine, Whiskey, and Watches event where Sangamon Watch Company showcased its collections. Brian Su of Sangamon Watch Company visited the company and met with co-owners Pierre (Pete) Brown and Eugene Stohlman to discuss future partnership.
Brian Su also met with the company’s first watch technician apprentice I’Kareem Buchanan. MWW received approval from the Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Council in May 2020. The apprenticeship program is two years to become a watch technician and three years to become a master watch technician.
Maryland Watch Works now provides assembly in the US and regulation at its facility for a number of microbrand watch companies. Sangamon Watch Company is in discussion with MWW on future Sangamon collections that use their own movement the MD 7081 based on the ETA 2824 architecture.
