Mechanical Movements

Mechanical movements refer to the intricate systems of gears, springs, and other components that power mechanical clocks and watches. They represent a traditional approach to timekeeping that predates electronic and quartz movements. They are complex systems consisting of various parts, such as escapements, mainsprings, balance wheels, and more. These components work together to regulate the passage of time and drive the movement of the clock. In clocks, a mainspring is wound manually using a key or crank. The accuracy of them can vary depending on factors such as craftsmanship, design, and maintenance. While modern mechanical movements can achieve high levels of accuracy, they may still require periodic adjustment or calibration to maintain precise timekeeping.
