The Tower Clock Company

South Charleston, Ohio


         Welcome to the home page of The Tower Clock Company. I am Phil Wright, owner and horologist for The Tower Clock Company. I have been repairing, preserving and restoring tower clocks for the past 30 years. Most of these clocks are in excess of 100 years old and require special care to keep them running efficiently. Our goal is to save these classic clocks that are spread through out America and keep them functioning as they did when they were first installed. We also repair and restore the dials, hands and mechanisms for the tower clocks. Automatic winders can be repaired or added to your clock for easier daily running of the clock.
