The week passed by extremely fast with the students working on their unfinished exercises. Shuai and Eddie continue to work on the escapement, prepping for their exam in a few weeks while Tomas, Theren and Simone tried to finish the timing exercises.

To spice things up a bit the students also worked on some personal projects such as making clear case backs for their personal watches.

On Wednesday the school went to the Musee International d'Horlogerie to witness the presentation of the new creation from Gruebel Forsey. It is a beautiful project promoting the heritage of classical watchmaking. The new student they have picked is Didier Cretin. We are all excited to see how collectors are going to respond to the finished product in the near future.

Also joining the school this week was Sif, coming all the way from Iceland. Sif enjoyed the bench test, having the chance to really understand what a watchmaker does. She was even greeted by our local Icelandic watchmaker, Robert. She hopes be back in 2017!
The biggest festival in Le Locle is happening this weekend, time to head out!
