Pallet staff (Tige d’ancre)

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