In 1845 an Italian precision instrument maker, Onorato Comitti, travelled to England seeking a new future in the land that was enjoying the unprecedented prosperity, generated by the Industrial Revolution. In 1850 he opened his workshop alongside other specialist makers in Clerkenwell, London. Dedicated to the pursuit of perfection and innovation, he quickly achieved an unsurpassed reputation for his recording instruments, including the finest quality mercury and aneroid barometers.
It was during the late Victorian period that Comitti Clocks gained renown as one of the finest clockmakers in England, receiving the Diploma of Honour for the company’s workmanship in 1888. Contact Nettletons today or read more about Comitti Clocks below.
