As they spin in round movements clock springs are at times needed in place of traditional springs because they are able to do so. Clock springs, as a kind of torsion spring, 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.  One of the most common uses for clock springs is to make up stainless steel components in watches, if you were wondering where the name comes from, also torque capacity is reduced in clock springs.  Clock springs have found many other applications, particularly in re-winding and counterbalancing systems.
