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.
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!
