About us

About us

As the youngest of eight children, whose father had a watch and clock repair shop, Isaac Kauffman learned to repair clocks at the age of 13. He eventually repaired all of the clocks that came into his father's shop, while his father focused on the watches.

Moving into the construction business, Isaac spent six years in this career, but knew that he wanted to have his own business, as his father had, but not full time clock repair work. Since Isaac had enjoyed the duties of his teen years working in his father's shop, he began to experiment on his own.  In 1980, he built several Grandfather Clocks in the basement of his parents' home and one year later built his shop, opening Kauffman's Handcrafted Clocks in February of 1981.

Isaac specializes in Grandfather and Grandmother Clocks, and has crafted over 500 since 1981! And, over the years, he has also handcrafted several styles of Mantle and Wall Clocks.

Take the time to visit Kauffman's Handcrafted Clocks on Route 772 between Route 23 and Route 340. You'll be greeted by the delightful tick-tocking of a shopful of clocks and will want to invest in one of the beautiful handcrafted clocks to treasure as an heirloom by you and your family.

    We LOVE our Grandfather clock! You did a perfectly beautiful job! The cabinetry is so carefully handcrafted - we show it to everyone. Every single time it chimes it makes me feel happy inside, and it's all because of your wonderful talent.

  • “Dear Mr. & Mrs. Kauffman,
    What can I say? The clock has arrived & is too beautiful!! I have to keep walking past it to have another look. It arrived in perfect condition and the hand painted dial and moon wheel was even more beautiful than we ever expected. The clock is ticking away and we are experimenting with the different chimes. We like them all.
