Cours d'échappement

Theren making correct endshakes on the escapement
Continuing on the escapement course, the students started with the endshakes of the balance and pallet fork and escape wheel, since they are closely interconnected with each other.  It is a very delicate subject where one little adjustment could change everything
Shuai boring the holes for his brass anvil
After finishing his exam, Shuai continues to work on his tools, starting this week on his brass anvil.  Things get very intense as you can see from the video below.

As many of watch enthusiasts know, this week was also the 2016 SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie) where it is an invitation only event.  Eddie was lucky enough to have been invited.  It was a great opportunity to see new products from many of the big brands.
