If you want to meet Henrik, come to Kansas City!
Tomas and Theren has just finished their pivot gauge exams which they have been preparing for all week. Now that that's over, next up for them are the balance staves. Balance staves are the ultimate micromechanical challenge in the course for the students. After micromechanics, the students will start working on real watches. Soon they will be able to make watch repairs and service watches on their own.

Final push before holidays

The school has another holiday coming up next week where they will be taking a week off to recharge. Meanwhile, Henrik will be travelling to Kansas City, America, collaborating with the AWCI (American Watch and Clock Institute) to offer a specialized course in finishing. It is a 2 day course in all types of different finishing techniques offered to watchmakers in the USA.
