Clock Springs are frequently needed in place of traditional torsion springs, designed to provide torsion as they rotate in circular motions. As a kind of torsion spring, clock springs are prepared from flat wires instead of round wires. The main difference between the two lies in the way the force is presented, as a clock spring revolves around an object's axis, pushing its force onto another object via the outer edge of the spring. Torque capacity is reduced in clock springs, hence if you're guessing where the name comes from, one of the most common uses for clock springs is to make up stainless steel components in watches. Particularly in re-winding and counterbalancing systems, clock springs have found many other applications.
