Three down,  one to go!
I passed my SAWTA 3 exam this week.  The test involves 4 parts:
1. Overhauling, repairing and casing of a 2824
2. 15 question theory
3. Case refinishing
4. Bracelet refinishing
Things went very smoothly this time around.  The only critique the examiner had for my watch was that I over-oiled the crown wheel and was a little light on the oiling for my lower balance pivot.  Besides that I got full marks!
The quarter is nearly finished, the last project I have on my plate is a cell change in an oil-filled quartz watch.   I am devising a vacuum system to make this simpler.  I will post soon.
