Final exam is getting closer and closer, and this week we keep on practicing to overhaul the 7 movements. Some movements still need more practice to reduce the overhaul time. Besides preparing the final exam, this week we also try some hand finishing techniques. We practiced making bevels, cutting and polishing jewel and screw sinks, and also do the frosting for the bridge and wheel. Doing hand finishing is really fun although it needs a lot of practice to make the finishing result very good. In addition, we also try to using lathe to cut the bevel for crown wheel. The result is pretty good for the first try. We hope to learn as many finishing skills as possible to enjoy the artistic parts of watchmaking.
