Shuai and Eddie on the other hand learned the theory of escapements this week while they continued on their exercises on gear train oiling and controlling the end shakes. They are slowly getting the hang of the scale they must work on and the feel that is required and acquired through all the exercises they have done.

Henrik visited the MIH on Wednesday where they had a presentation on the technological advancement of atomic timekeeping. CSEM has been working on atomic timekeepers with the goal of one day making an atomic wristwatch, and it looks like they are not too far away from achieving their goal!
|MIH hosted another well planned event|
|Some of the parts inside the clock came from a silicon wafer.|
|Atomic clock chips are already quite small|
We also had another watch enthusiast come take the bench test this week. Stan came all the way from Taiwan to find out what watchmaking is all about and to hopefully get a spot in the class of 2017. After a week of testing, Stan found fascinating things about watchmaking such as the way polishing is done and the micromechanics required of a watchmaker.
