What is a mechanical alarm clock?


The function of an alarm clock is to wake a person at a certain time to make an appointment. There are three types of alarm clocks: electronic, electromechanical and mechanical.


The mechanical alarm clock has a multi-stage gearbox. It is wound by hand with the help of watch keys or winding crowns. The watch wheels are constantly circulating at a certain angular speed. This gives the alarm clock its drive energy. The watch force stored in this way is then released in a targeted manner and the watch hands start to move. Additional wheel mechanisms cause a percussion mechanism to sound or a toy mechanism to start moving. It can also be used to install an alarm and timer.
