    Hello all.
    Can you help me find a description of what the escapment in this clock looks like?

    That's an odd one. I'd guess it had a platform balance rather than being a torsion clock.

    Perhaps, I have not seen one yet, maybe it is a prototype of a later one with a torsion pendulum ?there is no trace of another escapement .

    I found something like that in one of the newspapers from 1899 .Looks very similar, the use of a pocket watch in combination with a large barrel.

    Finally, thanks to a friendly watchmaker, after a long consultation, we recreated the clock almost as in the original, the clock works 4 months
