I just posted an image and link for an Arnfield escapement built in Meccano, in its own thread.  Maybe it will help?

There's the short version of that URL.  And, you're right...that is a VERY nice animation.

The Meccano diagram I mentioned above is at http://www.bealltool.com/clockforum/index.php?topic=252.0

Hiii alll.....
The "escapement" is the part of a clock that converts the energy of the falling drive weight into impulses that keep the pendulum swinging. It also transfers energy from the falling weight to drive the clock dials that show the time. The falling weight turns the hands, and the pendulum regulates that motion to occur at accurate intervals of time.
