technological advances during the 18th century saw the introduction of the cylinder escapement and the spring detent escapement by Arnold and Earnshaw with a bimetallic compensation balance, but the lever escapement developed by Thomas Mudge proved to be the most valuable asset to the watch-making industry of the time.
He thus became the first person in Le Locle to produce cylinder escapements, duplex escapements, perpetual calendar escapements and equation of time escapements.
