First Steps

2018 is looking promising. On January 3 our small team expanded. We got two new young apprentices - Chris and Andrew - who have been thrown into the deep end with getting straight into measuring and drawing. I am very proud to say that after 2 weeks they have almost completed technical drawings of the Unitas 6498 movement. The main challenge was to calculate the correct gear module and teeth profile (without any assistance!). We are pleased with the progress so far. Obviously both of them are happy to be a part of our project. Like with Tyler last year, Andrew and Chris will have a great head start over all other kids that will be learning watchmaking at Sydney TAFE in February.
