This kind of clock, also known as an anniversary clock or 400-day clock, is a mechanical timepiece that maintains its accuracy by the use of a torsion pendulum, which is a spring-loaded mechanism. With each revolution of the wheel, the clock's gears deliver a pulse of torque to the top of the torsion spring, which keeps the wheel turning.
