    Where's our friend? No update on him lately. All we know is he's bumming around Europe like a college student.

    A couple of pictures from the recent Bad Ischl, Austria visit. Interestingly enough, this is one of Nik (HTL Karlstein) B's favorite poses. p

    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    Hey guys, sorry for let you waiting so long. I was really busy the last time, but finally i found some time to add my report…
    My Name is Nikolaus Blamauer, i´m 20 years old, and I am Master Watchmaker since August 2009.
    I´m proud to host the watch for a while. :)
    Here it is, the complete photo report from the visit of the watch.
    Hope you understand my English an enjoy the pics.


    When I got the watch, the amplitude was changing from 240° to 200°.

    Then I opened the back,put down the automatic bridge, to see more of the movement.


    I saw an optical failure, the wheelbridge was highly scratched. So I decided to make a total revision and to change the bridge.

    I searched in our “parts warehouse” for the right bridge, and I found an old swatch with a 2840 movement.

    Re: WUSF6 Watchmakers of the World Watch Tour

    In your pictures you show us the movement before you replace the train bridge the ratchet screw is not right. But after replacement and during final assembly still the wrong ratchet screw is still there. Why you did not use the right ratchet screw? I'm sure the Swatch donor has it if ever the previous watchmaker lost the original. If you are not familiar you can try going back to the ETA Tech Communication and look for the right ratchet screw. There is nothing more precise and perfect job if you follow the original setting of the parts.
