early clocks were driven by hanging weights. Since depended on gravity to function properly, had to be firmly mounted on the wall or in one case.

Henlein "Taschenuhr" was expensive, had only an hour hand, and it was accurate – was run slower as the mainspring unwound – But quickly became popular and led to many imitators.
