From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The term American clock was used in the Victorian era and afterward to refer to a particular style of clock design followed by the American clockmakers of the day. In the 19th century, many clocks and watches were produced in the United States, especially in Connecticut, where many companies were formed to mass-produce quality timepieces.
