Sutton Clock Shop, which began as a pawn shop in the 1940’s, has been an Upper East Side institution for over 60 years. The shop’s founder, Knud Christenson, acquired his clock repair knowledge in his home country of Denmark and brought his talents to American in the late 1940’s. He joined Kay Yeager, who owned the pawn shop Sutton Trading Shop, and began to focus the business on clock repair in a tiny loft at 139 East 61st Street. Knud’s youngest son, Sebastian, a lifelong apprentice who was always looking over his father’s shoulder as he worked at his bench, officially came on board in the late 1980’s. Knud and Sebastian worked side by side for two decades until Knud, well into his 90’s, retired, leaving the business to Sebastian. In 2012, the shop relocated to a larger space at 218 East 82nd street and has expanded its services to include sales as well as clock and barometer repair. House calls are also available if you would prefer an onsite visit.
