So sorry to be leaving! Had such an amazing experience. Wouldn't change a thing! So sad to be leaving, I'll be returning in a month for the Chronograph Short Course. Excited for that!
Final exams went well, very pleased. Never thought we'd get to the level we got to, in such a short time!
Time to venture out in to the big wide world, and find work in the industry. Hoping to set up a workshop from home and repair and restore gorgeous vintage timepieces.
Thank you Henrik and Svenja for an incredible 8 months! Will miss you both dearly!
Until next time!
Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I continued with the gear train trial exams focusing on consistency, quality and finding new methods through experimentation to maximize time along with results. This went very well and I was able to raise my basics substantially whilst improving the efficiency of all the various tasks for the gear train module.
Today (Friday) was the last day for the technician course! I am very proud of their hard work and always staying so positive! It’s always a bit sad when the students leave but also great for them as a new chapter in their life begins. We wish both Jayne and James the very best continuation on their watchmaking journey. As a celebration we all went to an amazing typical Swiss farm house restaurant, which was an awesome experience as well! We will miss both of them and hope to see them later in life one way or the other! Pierre has been working a lot on his school watch and is nearing the completion of his bridges, faster than I expected! Everything else is going very well for everyone, Michael is trying out to make square holes which means he has to first make the tool for it so that he can broach a round hole into a square hole, this technique may come in handy for him later if he would one day need to make for example a ratchet wheel or sliding pinion in restoration or his own watch. See you next week and have a great weekend!
