    The easy answer is this "The axle or staff of the Balance wheel is hollow which is why it is called a cylinder escapement.". They aren't as accurate as the lever escapement and they were phased out in the 1930's. You can see if a watch has a cylinder escapement for you can see the escape wheel with teeth stick up above the plane of the balance wheel. There is also a weel with teeth that go inside the staff as well.

    This was the response Frédéric Japy "became in 1954 Jaz." face watches cheap George Frederick Roskopf. Japy thus made a series of shows all cylinder cheap priced at the time ranged from 5 to 7.50 francs. And the wind-up for the cost 13 francs. Shows very poor quality very hard to resist the rigors of time as Roskopf.
    Last Melissa was made ​​until after the war 14-18.
    When the watches Roskopf their enormous popular success gave rise enormously copy, which he reported what already walked more than once a buyer to rent the house. Anyway not much new face that can be seen on some current production I will not name. However, it threw discredit on the whole this production Roskopf.
    Suffice to say that bc collectors happy owner Roskopf watches are actually own a copy of very poor workmanship. Suffice to say that when you have it in for repair caution.
    voila! Now you know why some are simply irreparable Roskopf
    Following this, the dollar strong watches the watch that day was between 15 and 20 francs in 1878 we sum it can after the japy brother put on the market its series of shows cheaper than the dollar watches. exposure of 1878 japy brother presented a watch priced at five francs
