‘We pass our expertise‘

As a trained watchmaker, Sonia teaches VET apprentices how to assemble movements. 

‘My role is to support them during the two years of their apprenticeship and to pass on as much knowledge as possible so that they can work independently on the production line. My greatest reward is seeing them receive their diplomas, the ultimate proof of their fantastic achievement.’

Sonia, 17 years of ETA expertise

‘Improving the assembly process also means developing operators’ skills’

Giuseppe began his career at ETA as an electrical maintenance manager. He is now a project manager in mechanical movement assembly.

‘The extension of the mechanical team allowed me to help develop new machines to support production, and then I had the opportunity to take on more responsibility in order to develop legacy applications. Alongside my passion for watches, I like working for a large company like ETA because it allows me to undertake ambitious projects thanks to the large production volumes.’

I can feel myself growing professionally in a job that is for a great cause: preserving the footprint of history with excellent, high-quality products.’

‘The feeling of contact and customer satisfaction are my priorities’

It spurs me on to do even better – for them, but also for the company’s image!
