Now that we have our brands, let’s look at each company in more detail.

Chelsea Clock Company  

Founded in 1897, Chelsea Clock Company is one of the oldest and largest clock manufacturers in the United States. For over a century, Chelsea’s craftsmen have been designing and meticulously building some of the world’s most exquisite timepieces.

Today, the company continues manufacturing and repairing all its products at its corporate headquarters in Chelsea, Massachusetts.

Its Square Desk Alarm Clock is ideal for the modern home or office. It has handsome, smooth styling that complements any décor. Its alarm clocks feature a solid brass case with a German quartz movement making them very accurate for wake-up calls and meeting alerts.

Its Brass model features a pristine white dial with classic Roman numerals. Its Nickel model features a black dial that complements the finish with white Roman numerals.

Its alarm clocks are warranted against defects in material and workmanship for two years from the date of the original purchase.

Shinola Detroit

Shinola Detroit was founded in 2011 in Detroit, Michigan by Tom Kartsotis (co-founder of Fossil). It is owned by a Texan investment group, Bedrock Brands. Its headquarters occupies 95,000 square feet in The College for Creative Studies and is housed within the historic Argonaut Building.

Shinola conducts factory tours at its production facility in Detroit, however, at the time of the writing of this article, tours have been suspended.

Get a jumpstart on your day with the Guardian alarm clock from Shinola Detroit. It’s designed with a stainless steel case that is reminiscent of a Guardian timepiece. Its black brass dial features cream numbers and glow-filled hands. Its orange second-hand adds a pop of color for a signature Shinola look.

It’s easy to use and is powered by a battery allowing you to go off the grid but still wake up on time. Its luminosity can be charged with exposure to light, thereby allowing it to glow in the dark.

Shinola believes in products that last. The company has a limited guarantee that ensures every Shinola Alarm Clock is free from defects in both material and workmanship for 1 year from purchase.

While the company is committed to manufacturing its alarm clock with American components, it is not always possible as stated on its website.

I found a couple of companies that have their headquarters in the USA but actually manufacture products abroad.

Howard Miller Clock Company

Howard Miller Clock Company was founded in 1926 as the Herman Miller Clock Company – a division of office furniture manufacturer Herman Miller. Today, they are two separate businesses and there is no connection between them, although their headquarters are located across the street from one another.
