Another Organic Escapement by Dolf Perenti

I have shared the work of Dolf Perenti before. Here is another sculptural escapement mechanism created by him.

He describes it as:

"Another escapement with a wooden linkage. A normal pendulum would obstruct the view of the escapement so I had to do some bending and curving of some parts ;). Adjustable, sliding counterweight of pendulum at the backside compensates for forward tilting of the pendulum. Pendulum itself is adjustable for tuning the escapement (rotating of the pointform), Semicircular attachment on pendulum is adjustable for finetuning the escapement. A little weight pulls on a pulley behind the ecsapewheel."


Very organic.  See more of his work at his YouTube page here.
