The summer break arrived! This was our last week before we take our well deserved summer break. The Technicians continued to practice as much as possible on cases, dial and hands, and how to do the proper clean casing-up. Michael finished his final winding stem exam and started to design a winding stem for an antique pocket watch where it was missing. Alex continued with making some more pivot gauges after finishing his brass anvil and Markus continued studying the winding and setting mechanism and its lubrication. Today we also had our big summer clean and the school now looks like new again! See you in 3 weeks and enjoy the summer!
