Restoration Class

Last week we had the restoration course, watchmakers from the Netherlands, Greece and The State are all together here in le Locle. They had a chance to try out some machines and special tools for restoration. Also It's a good chance for everyone to share watchmaking techniques and information. We all had a very fun time together.

For Fullskill students, we also have the honor to have Kaj as our one-week substitute. And basically, we are free to do our own project.

We also had an unexpected guest from RGM to visit us.

First day of the restoration course.

What an honor, we had Roland Murphy, THE watchmaker from RGM , to visit us.
