LUMICHRON clocks -

Iconic Landmarks for any Location

LUMICHRON manufactures very high quality clocks for your school, commercial development, municipal building, or transit facility. We design and build custom clocks to fit your project requirements, delivered on-time, on-budget with great personal attention. From a single façade clock to a distributed time system – we're all about Public Time and we look forward to working with you! OUR APPROACH – Personal, factory-direct service to provide the best type of custom-made clock(s) for your project.

Some interesting clocks we have recently completed include tower clocks for the US Forest Services Building in Washington, DC; a small gem of a clock for a chic hotel in Paris, France and a different but equally fancy clock for a restaurant in the DC area;  intricate replicas of England's Waterloo and King's Cross train station clocks; a clock for a campground in Potlatch, Idaho; an illuminated skeletal clock for the Emeryville, CA, Fire Station and an illuminated 54-inch case clock for the Kettering, OH, Fire Station; an Swiss modern office clock for a Google employee; clocks for these Indiana spots: Ft. Wayne Children's Zoo, Harbour Trees Golf Club, and the Indiana Hockey Club; a clock for a park in Filadefia, Paraguay; many clocks for schools and municipalities, and many more.   Since many of our clocks are installed on-site by a general contractor or site electrician, we often don't see them once they are up and running.  When we do have "in-the-field" photos, we try to post them on our blog. You can subscribe to our blog to receive email notifications of updates, or check out our news page!

Upcoming projects include: tower clocks for  universities (Lumichron custom clocks will be the centerpiece of these new buildings); an exterior bracket clock for a jewelry shop in Anchorage, Alaska; a bank in Puerto Rico; a restaurant in Dallas; a courthouse, and a school in Zambia.  We would love to add you / your project to the list!

This landmark clock was first built and installed in 1907 on the Oconto County Courthouse in Oconto, Wisconsin. LUMICHRON restored each clock face to its original beauty, with new computer-controlled state-of-the-art clockworks.

How can we help you?

Resources for Professionals

If you are an architect or designer looking for a high quality outdoor clock, here’s a quick rundown of what LUMICHRON has to offer.

Would you like a skeletal clock with hands and ticks only, sometimes with halo-lighting?  Or a case clock with a fully lit face? Whatever your application, LUMICHRON fabricates each clock with care and attention, exactly to your specifications, paying close attention to materials, fit and finish.  We use unbreakable polycarbonate for the translucent dials, long-life LED illumination, tempered glass, proper drain holes, ventilation louvers, durable powder coating or acrylic enamel sign-grade paints, and stainless steel fasteners throughout.

LUMICHRON uses clock movements and controls of world-renowned, highest European quality to provide reliability, durability and accuracy for schools, hospitals, municipalities, mixed-use and retail developments, and sporting and entertainment venues.

LUMICHRON clocks provide hands-free operation:  A master clock keeps track of the time and automatically resets the display clocks after power interruptions and Daylight Saving Time, and is often synchronized by a GPS antenna.

For high quality outdoor clocks, personal service, and fast turnaround, let LUMICHRON make time for you!
