interesting..... so basically a Fusee is like a transmission for the mainspring, changing the "gearing" as it winds down?

*sigh*...then someone invented the quartz movement and all this ingenuity went out the window....

Not entirely. it just got bigger.
This very system is used in CTM's (Ceiling tube mounts) to counterballance x-ray tubes for diagnostic imaging.
Though they use cables instead of chains and a MUCH bigger spring.
