Watch 101 - What is an Endshake

The space in the jewel hole where the vertical plays a pivot is called the endshake. An endshake is essential for the smooth operation of the gear train. A controlled amount of endshake plays a crucial role in the functioning of the watch. The endshake has an impact on the escapement and the barrel. The endshake decreases heading to the escapement and increases heading towards the barrel.
