Enameller Anita Porchet works on a personal project in her workshop in Corcelles-le-Jorat in western Switzerland January 29, 2014. Porchet has a skill that Swiss watchmakers can't afford to do without. As an enamel painter, she decorates watches for the likes of Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin which can sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars. But the industry is facing a severe shortage of craftsmen and women who have mastered the techniques of enamel painting, marquetry and engine-turning - at a time when there is growing demand for high-end handmade watches.To match WATCHES-CRAFTSMANSHIP/ REUTERS/Denis Balibouse (SWITZERLAND - Tags: SOCIETY) less
