What is a ratchet wheel?

Sat on top of the barrel, the ratchet wheel is attached with a screw to the barrel’s arbor. Then, when a watch is wound the ratchet wheel turns and tightly coils the mainspring. There is a click that holds the ratchet wheel in place so that the mainspring cannot unwind backwards.
