Lesson planning ....

Friday. Its a wet and clammy day. The never ending queue of cars headed to France greets us every time we look out the windows.

Anyway, Henrik is hard at work on lesson planning. Alot to type and organize .... and i mean ALOT ...

This arrived yesterday morning

We didn't have time to post pictures of the watch yesterday as Henrik had to pay Borel furnaces a visit. Anyway, here they are !

Sleep on it

We came across this article online on CNN while reading the news. Interesting read for all, even watchmakers.

Almost done .. almost ....

A very exhausted but satisfied Henrik overlooking the final tool checklist for our first year students. And its on a Sunday. 

These are some tools which are mainly for the 2nd year but its best to organise the tools now than later. Sometimes, it takes months for the tools to arrive.

Old school ....

The new wave .. Nouvelle Vague ....

And 4 bags worth of tools for 4 very special individuals.

A glimpse into organising tools and materials for watchmaking students. We need to get it right ! 

Counting, checking, counting and checking ...

Inventory for 4 students. Not easy ...

And the chain grows longer ..

Incoming Tools

We didn't have a table big enough for all the tools we just for the incoming students in October so we had to lay them out in the hallway. The tooling list is almost complete and the rest of the tools should hopefully be in when the students start.
