Safeguarding watchmaking excellence in Mexico at SIAR 2019

For the fourth year in a row the Time Æon Foundation was honored to attend the SIAR in Mexico to organise its traditional workshop.

Hosted by Michel Boulanger, three passionate students were selected and had the opportunity to learn the basics of a number of traditional hand finishing techniques, such as;

  • Finishing the bridge flanks
  • Chamfer and polish the bridge and wheel bevels
  • Traditional bow-polished screw and jewel countersinks
  • Flat black polishing of steel parts such as screwheads
