Why do clocks need service? Mechanical clocks have many moving parts. Daily use causes wear on the inner workings. Clock oil is used in select areas to minimize resistance and ensure proper functioning of the gears. Over time the oil will collect dust and dirt. When the oil dries and mixes with the accumulated dirt it creates an abrasive paste. The various parts will gradually grind out of shape, causing the clock to stop working.
