by Jack Forster "A firsthand look at the forerunner of all modern co-axial escapement watches, in the collection of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers.

One of the wonderful things about London (one of the many, I should say) for an horological enthusiast is the presence of several museums with really extraordinary watch and clock collections and after having missed them while traveling, for various reasons, for many years, I was able to catch up on what I've been missing for the last few decades. One of the best places to visit is undoubtedly the British Museum but another must-see is the Science Museum, which is located a stone's throw from both the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum in Kensington. The Science Museum's highlight for a watch enthusiast, is the Clockmaker's Museum, which is the collection of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers"
