Restorer in watchmaking
In 2000/2001 Steffen Cornehl attended a series of seminars on the subject of restoration and assessment of historical clocks and watches at the Academy of Craft at castle Raesfeld.
Main topics at the seminars were, among others:
- Art history foundations for the determination and classification of historic clocks and watches,
- Restoration / preservation techniques,
- Manufacturing / process engineering,
- Documentation, stylistics and determination of watches
For completion of the course, Steffen Cornehl passed a theoretical examination and a final dissertation. For this a historic pocket watch had to be restored and a documentary had to be created with determination, failure analysis and description of the work carried out.
