Clock Winding

Posted on Thursday, August 5th, 2010 at 4:19 pm

Who invented the self-winding clock?

is it Benjamin Hanks?
if not, then who?

I'm having trouble finding information
all I've found so far is that it says that Benjamin Hanks patented the self-winding clock...
he has the rights to it for its invention (etc) but would that also mean that he did invent it?

A patent in this case in all likelihood means that he was the inventor./
