Duplainville Man Hand-crafts Unique Clocks For More Than 40 Years

By John Gerbig | November 4, 2014


For the past 40+ years, Bill Galinsky has been involved in designing, making, and repairing clocks.  From the harvesting, sawing and drying of his own lumber, to carving and assembling each clock by hand, he creates some of the most unique clocks in the world.  Some whimsical, some extremely ornate.  Bill’s clocks set the standard for care and attention to detail at The Duplainville Clock Company.
