NH2 Timascus update

After spending all day in our city workshop with Andrew and Bobby doing restorations, at 8pm I joined Josh in Brookvale for some machining action. At midnight we got our final version of Timascus pallets bridge. This is a very thin component with complex geometry and very tight tolerances, directly responsible for timekeeping parameters, particularly the amplitude of the balance wheel. The one minute video shows the final stage of machining and quick inspection under the microscope.  But that was not the end of the night shift: we proceeded to titanium etching and anodizing. What fun! Seeing the colours popping up was simply mesmerizing. 

Check out our short video: then see the part on our Instagram:
