A balance wheel, or balance, is the time­keep­ing device used in me­chan­i­cal watches and some clocks, anal­o­gous to the pendulum in a pendulum clock. It is a weighted wheel that rotates back and forth, being returned toward its center position by a spiral torsion spring, the balance spring or hair­spring. It is driven by the es­cape­men­t, which trans­forms the rotating motion of the watch gear train into impulses de­liv­ered to the balance wheel.
