Restoration projects to completion

A perfectly oiled Incabloc
Last week Henrik showed the guys how to oil Incablocs, so this week Shuai and Eddie had a chance to try it out.  It is mostly an exercise to train the dexterity of the hands via the use of the tweezers. Besides oiling the Incablocs, they also learned how to oil the winding and setting mechanism in the watches they received.  It is tough to get just the right amount; there is usually the risk of oiling too much, allowing oil to spread throughout the movement making the oil more of a hazard than a help.

Remember that escape wheel that Theren was making?  The project has finally been finished and is in the process of being adjusted to the escapement.  Henrik will be doing the adjusting and final check before it is ready to be sent to the client.
