Term Definition
Escapement 

Winding a watch gives it energy by coiling up the mainspring. Left on its own, this energy would be spent in an instant as the mainspring unspools. The escapement is that part of the movement that takes this stream of energy and releases it in discrete bursts, to drive the balance wheel.
