Taking it slow

Exams are over and the students have a few weeks until Basel World.  It is too short a time for starting a new subject so these weeks are dedicated to catching up and doing extracurricular work.  Simone finished up left over exercises and started turning balance staffs.  Theren continues to do the fine details on his escape wheel and repairs on his own watches.  Tomas is working on a swan neck for his pocket watch and servicing and repairing other personal watches.

Taking some professional pictures
Shuai has started turning pivot gauges and also learned how to burnish using the Jacot tool.  He has thus started his journey of making 13 perfect pivot gauges, just like Eddie.

Henrik makes the cover!
For our friends in America that have not taken a course from Henrik, you're in luck, because Henrik was invited again by the AWCI to teach restoration techniques at their headquarters in Harrison, OH this August and later to give a finishing course at the AWCI annual convention this year in Chicago, IL in late September, link to the courses can be found here;

If you are interested in meeting Henrik or taking one of the two courses offered by Henrik this year, feel free to check out the AWCI website and sign up soon!
