I bet Omexa knows this one well, I'd bet on it. He's probably still up. .
You will have to catch Ray (Omexa) in the morning Robert.

Looks like a duplex of some sort. The escape wheel appears to have small teeth on the underside as well..,

Hi Robert,

Yes, Paul is right, it's a duplex, but in a very unconventional layout. The escape wheel is 'upside down' from the usual way with duplexes and the balance wheel, with only one spoke and a short counterbalance is most peculiar. The long teeth on the escape wheel, which provide the unlocking function, appear to be blunt at the ends rather than sharply pointed.

Regards,

Graham

Wow great eye
Thank you!
Rob
Thank you
Price now makes sense too
I dont know if the buyer will be able to repair the movement so easily but seeing the skills so many NAWCC members makes me sure it can be done with the right tools or parts and skills.

Hi, I bid on this until it went through the roof and went for a ridiculous price; I hope the final bidder can make his own parts:???: Regards Ray

The small teeth on the underside are the impulse teeth, like all duplex escapements, but in a different position than most.
