Mechanical egg clocks

Egg clocks have been used with a mechanical spring movement since Grandmother’s time. The structure of these egg timer is simple. The housing usually consists of two mutually rotatable parts with a minute scale on the circumference. Inside are the clockwork and a small bell. To start the clock, one half of the case is twisted to the desired time and then released. When the end of the set time has been reached, the bell rings. A disadvantage of mechanical watches is the relatively large inaccuracies in short times. The reason is that when a short time is set, the spring of the movement is only slightly tensioned. The stored energy in the spring is then sufficient for some egg clocks of this kind just to run the clock completely and to activate the bell. If longer times are set, the spring force is always higher in relation to the set time and is more than sufficient. In addition, there is the aging of the spring, that is, a general decrease in the spring force over time.
