Dominy Clocks and Watch Repairs at Winterthur

As proprietors of a metalworking shop with small forge and a woodworking shop, the Dominy craftsmen possessed the skills and equipment needed to make tall clocks “from scratch.” Between 1768 and 1828, Nathaniel IV led Nathaniel V and Felix in the production of approximately 100 examples that varied in complexity and price. In addition to making complete clocks, they repaired watches and Felix earned extra income by supplying clock components to Elijah Simons, a contemporary clockmaker in the village of Sag Harbor.
