Description:
This model is missing from the Cornell Collection. This escapement is a variation of the anchor deadbeat escapement of George Graham, who was a partner of the famous English clockmaker, Thomas Tompion (See discussion for X2). The anchor escapement of Robert Hooke and William Clement (c.1675) had a recoil due to the impact of the anchor pallets with the teeth in the escape wheel. Graham designed the teeth and pallets to eliminate the recoil vibrations.
