Charles Fasoldt (1818-1898) was born in Dresden, Germany where he trained as a clock and watch maker before emigrating to America in 1848. He worked at first in New York, moving to Albany in 1861 where he set up a manufactory for clocks and watches specializing in precision work. A brilliant horologist, he was granted several patents during his career and the precision engineering and features seen on many of his clocks have not been surpassed in America.
