Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I started the trial exams, this was very interesting as even though their are less parts than the gear train. Balance, palet fork and escape wheel this section was still a challenge as even though it wasn’t hard it required a lot of focus for the adjustments and problem solving making it both challenging and stimulating.
STEP 2: TURNING! (WILLY)
This week turned out to be very interesting! Andres from South Korea and Renato from Switzerland came for the taster course, both seemed to be very passionate already about watchmaking and perhaps we may see both in the near future here in our school. Willy got introduced to hand filing, drilling and turning this week, Pierre continued with his school watch, now nearing bridge completion, Markus is going strong with the escapement course and already did 2 practice exams, Alex and Michael are completing some final pivot gauges and other interesting micromechanical exercises, all in all, a very pleasant week! Have a great weekend everyone.
