Mark Hoffman

Model 88

This month we were treated to a video made by members Jim Sweeney, Mark Hoffman and Pat Caruso. This fascinating video shows Pat resurrecting a special type of escapement (Cole's) from the depths of watch making history. Here Mark is showing section of video where Pat is being interviewed.
Top left picture is Pat's Cole's escapement wheel; at right is standard escapement. Lower picture is Pat's Model 88 with cut-out in plate to show the escapement in action which does not require banking pins.
