Class Code 3385

Watch Manufacturing

Class code 3385 is used for employees that work within a facility that manufactures watches and clocks. Products may be traditional, containing gears and springs, or electronic, getting their power from batteries or wall outlet plugs. Self winding and manual winding devices are both included under the scope of this classification as well. The manufacturing of these products will begin with metals received from others, and may include gold, silver, steel, and certain alloys. Operations performed to the metal (whether in sheet, bar, tubular, or wire form) may include casting, punching, blanking, turning, grinding, heat-treating, and plating, depending on the process. Once ready for assembly, the metals will be combined with other pre-made materials like fasteners, gems, electric cords, watchbands, and watch cases to form the final product. Paints, lacquers, and thinners may also be required as well. Businesses that sell watches and clocks would not be included, and should be classified separately.

Class code 3385 is not limited to only watches and clocks, though, and can include other trades that use small tools to do precision bench work. Examples of included duties are generally related to the repair of things such as cameras, projectors, and precision photographic equipment.
