Finally, we got some sun! Things are looking brighter now and even our friends came for visit 😊 Very busy week for everyone! Yuriy and Willy will soon leave us and it will be a bit sad, however, we will very soon receive new students! The perfect circle continues! We covered some last aspects of the technician course such as the automatic watch, ball bearing replacement, hand setting, water resistance issues how to deal with different type of cases etc. Yuriy finished one of his side projects, a beautiful pocket watch with a Zodiac movement with blue jewels! Absolutely stunning looking movement! On this project he learned black polishing as well as bluing screws, making bushings to replace the worn ones among many other techniques to make it run with good amplitude and timing ones again, and he even learn how to gold plate, unfortunately the hands he wanted to gold plate did not fit in the end so he had to use the old ones, but at least he learned the process! David and Renato continued machining tools and learn how to extract a broken screw from a tool holder which is always an interesting process!
Willy handed over a unique special commemorative plaque as a token of appreciation of the education he received, what an honourable thing to do! Thank you so much Willy! we will certainly never forget you!
We probably covered more things this week that I already forgot about as the week was so fast! It was an awesome week overall! Have a great weekend everyone!
