So now you know why I call it a luxury watch making summer camp. Only here under strict German instruction! The offer lasts until August 31, 2010. Not sure about the costs, etc... but it should be a real once in a lifetime experience for those interesting in master watch makers and luxury item production. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +41 (0)32 315 14 66."Thomas Prescher is offering tours of atelier in Twann, Switzerland on this summer. Discover for yourself how a timepiece is developed, produced, assembled and regulated - from raw pieces of metal to a finished piece of art. You will also learn what the various machines do and the techniques watchmakers use to master their craft. Under experienced guidance, you will have a chance to sit at a watchmaker's bench, loupe on the eye, screwdriver and tweezers in hand and try manipulating real watch components for yourself. Practice your fine finishing technique on a tiny steel part and, if you are feeling brave, try your hand a finishing a real tourbillon bridge."
