Escape wheel pinion (Pignon d‘échappement)

As carrier of the escape wheel, the escape wheel pinion (pignon d‘échappement) is a component part of the escapement consisting of the escape wheel and the pallet fork. In a mechanical clockwork, it's the escapement's task to uniformly distribute the energy coming from the mainspring (barrel) to the balance (regulating device). All escape wheel pinions manufactured by FELLER SA, are manufactured highly symmetrically and are equipped with roller-burnished pivots which can be used with the lowest possible friction.
