A platform escapement for the Rolls Westminster Clock Super Ancre

Recommended Posts

My name is Piotr and I am writing to you from Warsaw, Poland.  I am and old clocks lover primarily from 1920s and 1930s.
Unfortunately, my precious Rolls Westminster Clock Super Ancre has not been working for the long time. An experienced clockmaker in Warsaw told me told me some time ago  that is was a matter of the platform escapement that should be replaced. The platform was quite worn out. He and his son-in-law tried to revive it and my clock was working for nearly 3 month and stopped. They tried again and again without success. We have tried hard, but we have not managed to find a similar one in Poland.
I am wondering if you have the part that I am looking for?. I can send you some pictures of the clock and platform. I am interested in buying that part in working condition.

Hi Piotr,

If You send the platform to me in Bulgaria, I will restore it and send it back to You. I restore antique watches and clocks and produce by myself all parts needed, it will be no problem for me to do it. If interested, I will send my adress in personal message.

Best Regards, Neven.

It seems to impossible to restore it. I have tried to do it  twice s o far. My clock worked for month and stopped. So I have to subsite it. If you can help me somehow, send me please your contact.
