Timing Time

Shuai checking the conditions of the 6498 for timing adjustments

Eddie fine tuning his hairsprings to get better timing results
Shuai and Eddie has started with the last portion of the program which is timing.  Timing is a very sensitive operation which requires patience and total understanding of a mechanical timepiece from everything the students have learned till now.  This is the time when theory and practice merge into one.

Tomas milling some components thinner

Simone turning special bushing for the project
The other guys started again on the secret school project which is still a challenge due to the complex mechanisms involved.  The project deadline is in the end of January, 2017.  The students are therefore focusing all of their energy and efforts into the project for the next few weeks.

KHWCC Christmas cards in the making

This weekend is also the 7th biannual Patrimoine d'horlogerie in both the UNESCO cities of Le Locle and La Chaux-du-Fonds.  During these days many watchmaking related businesses open their doors to guests everywhere to show the heritage of watchmaking.  The students plan to visit a few establishments and will report their findings in next weeks post!  Stay tuned.
