A magnificent signature

Tower clocks have become the signature focal point of many communities. The powerful presence of a clock tower immediately creates a sense of place in any gathering area. If you’ve noticed a magnificent timepiece gracing a city square, courthouse, university, or business center, chances are it’s from The Verdin Company™.

“RESTORING OUR CLOCK HAS BROUGHT BACK THE CHARM AND SEASONAL MUSIC TO OUR TOWN.”

Clock makers since 1842

The hallmark of Verdin’s business since 1842, is the creation of fine, durable and, when needed, customized, timepieces. We are the United States’ oldest continually operating manufacturer and installer of tower clocks and post clocks.

Tower clock styles

SERIES I

Surface Mounted Numerals or Markers

The exterior of a surface or building is used as the “face” for the Series I numerals or markers. Options include marker rings and clock chimes.  The clocks may be front lighted for a striking effect. 

SERIES II

Surface or Wall Mounted Dials

The Series II dial is mounted to a surface or exterior wall by means of mounting brackets. The numerals for markers appear on the dial. Clock chimes are an option.  The clocks may be front-lighted for a striking effect. 

SERIES III

Dial Mounted into Structure Opening

The Series III is mounted into an opening in a structure that is the same diameter as the dial. A mounting ring holds the clock in place. Clock chimes are an option. This clock can be backlit with Verdin’s Moonglow TM lighting.

CANISTER CLOCKS

Canister clocks have the clock movements and lights self-contained within a waterproof canister structure. These clocks are ideal for surfaces where access is limited; perhaps there is no room to mount the clock movement behind a wall or in an open tower. Canister clocks are installable practically anywhere.

CUSTOM CLOCKS

We design, build, and install custom architectural clocks for both towers and buildings. Our clocks often form the signature element of a new commercial development. Each clock is customized to enhance the landscape and architectural environment of each customer.

TOWER CLOCK CONFIGURATOR

Design your own tower clock, choosing clock model, dial, style of hands, and size. We make it easy to create your Verdin Series I, II, III, or canister clock online, then download your final drawings in CAD or PDF files.

Tower clock restoration

RENOVATE YOUR HISTORIC CLOCK

The Verdin Company™ has been restoring tower clocks since 1842 when our forefathers started our business in Cincinnati, Ohio. We have specialized in repairing and manufacturing clocks ever since. In 1875, we invented a continuous winder that revolutionized (and simplified!) the winding of clocks everywhere.
