See you in a week Henrik!

The three winners of the Prix Gaïa
On Tuesday our school was invited to attend the Prix Gaïa at the MIH in La-Chaux de Fonds.  The Prix Gaïa is a honorary prize given to special achievements in watchmaking under three different categories, arts and creations, entreperneurship, and history and research.  It was packed venue where the students had the opportunity to meet other watchmakers and important people in the industry.

Henrik ready for his trip

Henrik will be making another trip to America tomorrow.  He has another polishing course planned for our American friends.  This time he will be traveling to the city of Chicago where the AWCI annual convention will be held.  It is going to be a great opportunity for the watchmaking community to create some bridges across Europe and the Americas.

Since Henrik will not be here next week, there will not be a post.  See you in two weeks!
