Horology 102: Gear Train

This session started in a similar fashion to 101 in that taking the movement apart used the same steps. Because everyone had basic knowledge of how to do this thanks to 101, it was lot faster to remove the pieces. The focus of this class was understanding how the balance wheel, fork pin, escapement work with the third wheel, second wheel and first wheel work together to make the gear train.
