One of the last projects of my first year in watchmaking school, we were tasked with creating a 3/4 plate for an ETA 6497.

A very complicated project that required many hours and very tight tolerances. This project used many skills and incorporated many new tools, including a wax chuck (not seen), and a wobble stick for centering.
