Beginning of the Eyesight testing

This week, we started to practice truing wheels and put the jewels flush with the mainplate. These are the last two parts for our upcoming exam at the end of this month. Truing wheels is much harder than we thought. Our target iss not only make the bended wheels functional but also make them as flat as possible. We even tested our wheels under the microscope. Haha i think this is more about eyesight testing than watchmaking. Installing jewels is a little bit simpler than truing wheels. We just need to choose the right size of anvil and pusher. We dont want to damage the most expensive part of the watch. Next week we will practice more and will be well-prepared for the exam. Ciao.

Getting ready to make wheels flat.

Stan is checking the wheel.

Discussing with each other make us more easier to get the hand of  the skill.

Yi Ting is looking for the bent point.
That's the quality we want for flatness.
