Welcome, class 2019, the new adventure for the next two years. This week we are still settling down in our new life in Le Locle. Everthing is new and we are starting from the beginning.
Eddie, class 2017 who is working on his school watch trying to cut spokes for the wheel. It looks great, and it took time and good watchmaking skills to make the parts as good as eddies.
We start our first week from reading drawings and cutting brass plate according to the drawings. Then we file it for making our own watchmaking tools. Filing is the most basic and important skill for watchmaking so its worth spending time on it.
Felix from England is planing his cutting plan for his brass plate.
Yi Ting (left) from Taiwan cuts her 8mm brass plate witch takes very long time to do, and Sif (right) from Iceland files cutted square plate.
Both Stan (left) and CJ (right) are from Taiwan are practicing the filing skills.
Tomorrow will be Easter and before the weekends we always have to clean the school before we leave. Everyting must be tidy and clean, every tiny details are very important for the people who want to become a watchmaker. So we learn it in every area such as the cleaning the school.
Eddie and Stan are discussing a very important dishwasher complications.
