Clocks having a lot of moving parts that require maintenance every two years. Clocks get their “Tick and Tock” by the constant rotation of gears. This is the process of transfer of motion by clock power that is generated by springs, weights, or a battery.
Getting the gears to turn is possible by a swinging pendulum, balance wheel
Grandfather clocks are also known as floor clocks, granddaughter and grandmother clocks. The grandeur of the beloved grandfather clocks simply speaks for itself. The gentle sway of the pendulum creates the familiar soothing tick-tock sound. Grandfather clocks can have spring driven clock movements, weight driven grandfather clock movements, or battery quartz grandfather clock movements.
Mantle clocks, table top carriage clocks and wall clocks all have clock movements that require bi-yearly maintenance.
Cuckoo Clocks are in world by themselves. The cuckoo Coo sound is created by two whistles with bellows on top to power wind that blow throw the cuckoo clock whistle. The cuckoo clock movement has two levers to move up and down at the half hour and hour. The cuckoo clock movement is connected to the cuckoo clock whistles by lift wires that create the familiar cuckoo bird sound.
