Christmas is coming

Time fly’s. It's almost the end of the year. We are on our way to our Christmas holiday so this is our last week before our vacation.

Before the end of the semester we finished our tools and plated them so they look nicer. Everyone had his/her own design for the outlook of the tools. They look really cool. In addition, we finished our final theory exam, and we are free from now.

Early this week, we had a great chance to visit Urban Jürgensen which is a historic watch brand. In their place, we saw their amazing watches, finishing, and also how they polish the hands and do the Grenage on the dial. After the visit, we hope that if someday we could work in Urban Jürgensen that would be really cool. Thanks for the hospitality of Urban Jürgensen.

Everyone is amazed with the result.

Cool blueprint of a lever escapement. 

Historical document, Urban Jürgensen is more than 243 year old company.

After the visit, we went straight ahead to Mr. Simonin speech in Neuchatel at EPFL, microcity, he share his watch career on the event. He is really a living legend and dictionary of watchmaking. We could always learn something from him. It's nice to meet hime again.

In the last few days, we also got some tin bars, and we made our own tin plate for polishing. It's really easy to make one. We think we could use these tin plates for our entire watchmaking career.
Last, Merry Xmas for all KHWCC friends and alumni.
