Watchmaster

Bolesław is from Cracow. He has been working as a Watchmaster for over 43 years.


  

School in Cracow where he learned his craft has been closed for over 20 years now. He opened his own workshop in 1984 in a small town called Makow Podhalanski located 80km from Cracow.


  

He travels from Cracow to his workshop in Makow Podhalanski every day by train. There are only few people with his skills left in Poland that are able to repair, custom made parts for mechanical watches.

  

He is a true gentlemen and he was kind enough to tell me a bit of history about himself and his profession. For me he is a living history. Posted by Marek Hajdasz www.mhphotos.ie
