The Debaufre escapement is a dead-beat frictional rest escapement invented by the London maker Peter Debaufre in about 1704. Makers in and around Ormskirk, Lancashire, revived its use in the latter part of the 18th century, also using a variation of the escapement tried by Henry Sully in about 1721-1722. Examples of these watches are often referred to as 'Ormskirk verges'.
