Clock makers since 1842
Verdin has been fabricating durable, timeless tower clocks for 175 years at our factory in Cincinnati, Ohio. Our tower clocks grace some of the finest public places and are focal points in communities across America. Verdin offers a wide variety of tower clock designs: lighted tower clocks are available backlighted, halo lighted, or edge lighted with LEDs; a wide range of standard dial markings and hands; and special dial lettering and graphics are available. Custom designed tower clocks are our passion and the hallmark of our business.
Tower clock styles
Surface Mounted Numerals or Markers
This series uses no clock face; instead, numerals or markers are mounted to a surface or exterior of a building, which becomes the face or dial of the tower clock.

Surface Mounted Dials
Featuring a clock dial mounted on a surface, this tower clock may be mounted directly to a surface with mounting brackets, and may be lighted – either from behind with a light canister, or front-lighted for a striking effect.

Dial Mounted into Structure Opening
Series III – Contains a dial mounted into an opening in a structure that is the same size as the diameter of the clock. A mounting ring holds the clock in place. These clocks may be lighted from behind with a light canister using Verdin’s Moonglow®; which provides the highest quality backlighting in the industry.
Canister clocks have the clock movements and lights encased within the clock structure. Canister clocks are ideal for surfaces where access is limited (ie. where there is no room to mount the clock movement behind a wall or in an open tower). Canister clocks are installable practically anywhere.
