Just think of the years of experience and training required to even build a simpler watch!
No wonder those apprenticeships were unpaid, the kid basically had to become the Master Craftsman’s slave, or in a better situation, his son. Once reaching a certain level of expertise, he had to work for the Master for a period of time at a low wage to offset the training as well. In most cases…

Even today, our apprenticeship contracts use the term “indenture” and the apprentice is bound to the contractor he is employed by. They cannot quit in most cases, at least without repercussions.
