Time only clocks have just one winding hole through the dial, usually located in the center of the dial just below the hands.Most longcase clocks and bracket or mantle clocks have two gear trains and are thus striking clocks.It should be noted that practically all mechanical clocks that have been made within the past 100 years, i.e.those that are not antique, have been made in a factory using mass production techniques.Some of the Chinese and Japanese bells are as old as their Roman, Greek or even Judaic or Egyptian counterparts.
In Christian churches the bells could not have come into use before the end of VI or the beginning of the VII century.

Both weight driven clocks and spring driven clocks are usually wound by a key or crank (key) through the dial at the front of the clock.
Many wall clocks are just time only clocks so do not strike the hours.
