Mysterious projections ..


Henrik was being camera shy when this picture was taken. And he claims he needs a haircut ? Metrosexuals and their vain-ness ! 

Anyway, what was he doing ? He was trying to measure a component on the profile projector. Profile projectors are very important in watchmaking. Without them, its almost like driving in the dark without headlights. Not only can you trace outlines of components accurately on the profile projector, you're also able to do accurate measurements. This is a rather important machine for restoration as well as sometimes, you just can't get spare parts for 100 yr old watches and you need to make some parts from scratch. Profile projectors are godsends then !
