Winter is coming

The temperature drop rapidly this week in Le Locle, but the schedule in school still make us sweat a lot. We are very glad to have visitor Briana Le from San Fransisco, who is also a member of NYHS (New York Horological Society) and instructor in the west coast. She shared a lot of her visit in Switzerland and encouraged us to maximize our learning while in school. And because of her we also had the honour to skype with America's well known clock maker, David Walter. He showed us some of his amazing works and shared some ideas to us as future watchmakers.
Thanks Briana, and have a safe trip back to the US.

How can we not do selfie with visitor. 

An unforgetable skype meeting with master David. He is really easy going and extremly nice man Also very willing to share his knowledge to us. Thank you.

Thank you Theren, the student of 2017 who donate the very precise and stable base which makes our measurement much more easier.

Sometimes we have to find ways to organize our work.
Balance bridge support with frosting base and fine finished support.

Very nice black polishing done by Yi-Ting. This is really the ultimate goal to achieve.
This is also our excersise to restore winding stem for a pocket watch.

Another amazing work from Yi-Ting.
