Definition of the day

Balance,

A moving part, generally circular, which oscillates on its rotational axis. It is coupled to the spring to achieve the to-and-fro motion by which time is divided into strictly equal parts. Each to-and-fro movement ("tick-tock") is called an oscillation. Each oscillation is divided into two vibrations.
