Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I continued to expand the gear train module with last week focusing on getting back in and tackling both theory and servicing of the gear train, including the areas such as the barrel.
We are already preparing for the technician final exam, lots of overhauling of watches! Very intense week for sure! Michael got introduced to turning between dead centers, this is a very important skill for any watchmaker to obtain to the highest personal level as its one of the most important part of classical watchmaking, indeed one of the most important skills for the art of watchmaking! Alex got introduced to the technician course and we talked about screwdrivers tweezers and the shock-absorber manipulation. Markus is progressing well with the geartrain course and has covered all the different parts of it and will be ready soon for practice exams. See you next week and have a great weekend!
