  • Escapement

    An escapement of watch is a mechanism, which reforms the continuous running movement to the oscillating movement. This element supplies regular energy output. An escapement of any sample of fine watches moves a pendulum or balance wheel, which is an oscillating element of watch. The work of a timepiece is impossible without an escapement, it will collapse. This mechanism supports the oscillations of a pendulum or balance wheel. The invention of an escapement was the breaking point in the sphere of creation of Swiss watches. The given mechanism allowed making the mechanical watch of all the types. The credibility of an escapement depends on level of service and producer’s qualification. An escapement of luxury watch should precisely reflect the oscillations of a pendulum. Moreover, it is very significant to remark that watchmakers do not use pendulums for creating of wrist samples of prestige watches. So, the balance spring and balance wheel are the main parts of an escapement of wrist items of high-end watches. The first escapement of watch was invented in Europe in 1275, it was called verge escapement. Then, Robert Hooke invented anchor escapement in 1657. This type is employed for pendulum watch. Coaxial escapement is the best mechanism for creation of elite timepieces but it is very difficult to assemble it. Nowadays only the Omega luxury watches company employ this type of escapement.
