This concept is for a clock driven by a mass-spring system.  A version of it where the mass-spring not only drives the works, but replaces the oscillation of the pendulum.  This means that the spring constant will be changing as a function of the continued paying of slack in the works.  A Fusee transmission is being considered to mitigate the variation in spring stiffness.
