The name of this store comes from a term for a type of movement invented in the 1500s by an inventor in germany. It derives from the term lever escapement. Which is comprised of two levers pushed by an escape pin to may the dials turn. This action has been used for quite some time now and is still in production to this very day. We proudly adopt Levers Escape as a trademark name since 2017.
