Much like other mechanical clocks, cuckoo clocks contain a tight spring that provides the force to keep the clock’s gears in motion. After a set time, the spring unwinds, driving the gears and internal mechanisms to a halt. Rewinding the spring tightens it and gives it the tension necessary to function. Cuckoo clocks offer an excellent balance of looks, class, and reliability.
The eight-day clock movement describes a clock that was designed to be rewound every eighth day, or approximately once a week. A one-day clock must be rewound every day.
