Designed to provide torsion, Clock Springs are at times needed in place of traditional torsion springs as they spin in round motions. As a kind of torsion spring, clock springs are prepared from flat wires instead of round wires. Pushing its force onto another object via the outer edge of the spring, as a clock spring revolves around an object's axis, the key difference between the torsion and the clock springs are in the way the force is presented. 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. Clock springs have found many other applications, particularly in re-winding and counterbalancing systems.
