Henrik had a lot to share with the students since he got back from the AWCI convention in Chicago, aside from the finishing course Henrik listened in to a wide range of horologically related lectures such as the future of 3D printing, micromilling, 3D scanning in watchmaking, writing articles for watch magazines and macro photography.

Henrik met a lot of enthusiastic watchmakers from all over America, and even one student came all the way from Australia answering many of their questions in his micro-lectures. All in all Henrik had a great time in America and is looking forward to the next AWCI event in 2017.
