Tomas has finished his escapement exercises and has started working on his own watch repairs. He started with a Russian Slava watch and from the design of it, it is nothing like the Swiss counter part. He has another Swiss pocket watch which he need to make a swan neck for. The original is gone forever, so he will need to do some research and design a new "original".

This week we also hosted a new bench tester coming in from Oxford, England. His name is Felix and he has already fell in love with watchmaking, and the school!
