Josh Shapiro, Watchmaker

Josh Shapiro, by day, is a high school principal and teacher. By night, however, he has been teaching himself engine turning, and the results speak for themselves. This is a photo of what he considers his “first acceptable” watch face dial. The 18K numerals are not of his making, but came from a vintage  Hamilton pocket watch. He is a student of watchmaking and a huge fan of the late George Daniels as well as Roger Smith. He is now taking orders for watch face dials and if anyone would like to get in touch with him, please let me know and I will send contact information along to him.
