    Hi Don,
    It’s hard to tell from your picture (the one with the escape over to the right on desk) but the teeth on that escape wheel look blunt and damaged. Could just be a blurry pic but when I zoom in it sure looks like the tips are blunted. They think they should have fine pointed tips. The reason that I asked you to remove the verge and observe the escape wheel teeth was to make sure they were all the same height as they slowly passed a point of reference. At this point I still feel your problem lies here (skipping teeth) if all other conditions remained the same. I’ll find a pic to put up here of a Hermle escape wheel and will re-size your pics too.
    Back in a bit.
