Waterbury clock history starts in 1854. In Waterbury, Connecticut-based brass manufacturer Benedict & Burnham created Waterbury Clock Company to manufacture clocks using brass wheels and gears. Waterbury Clock Company was legally incorporated on March 27, 1857, as an independent business with $60,000 in capital. The American clock industry, with scores of companies located in Connecticut’s Naugatuck Valley, was producing millions of clocks, earning the region the nickname, “Switzerland of America”. The Waterbury Clock Company was one of the largest producers for both domestic sales and export, primarily to Europe.
