Origin: Stockholm, Sweden.
Course: 2 years full skill course.
Current mode: This week I worked on both gear train theory and practical work applying the experience of the gear train to several movements focusing on getting the movements done in bulk, such as the winding and setting, gears and the barrels. This went very well and I was able to cover a substantial amount. Additionally I also did my exam and this went extremely well getting a solid pass. In conclusion this was a solid week.
Temperature dropped to 6°C today (Friday) and raining, it feels freezing cold! Winter will probably arrive soon as it looks now, some snow was also promised over the weekend. Otherwise this week was pleasant and interesting. Markus will be moving on to the escapement course next week, Alex decided to finish some old micromechanical work and will hook onto the technician course ones it starts again, Pierre is progressing well with the bridges for his school watch and Michael made his first pivot gauge practice exam, unfortunately it snapped at the end. Otherwise nothing special for now except that we are going to get some books and tools tomorrow at Mr. Simonin tool and book store, he just got the new improved and corrected version of the Les Montres Compliquées by François LeCoultre its also a limited edition of 300 copies; https://www.booksimonin.ch/fr/7127-les-montres-compliqu%C3%A9es.php#corps which I have been eagerly waiting to get my hands on. Have a great weekend everyone!
