If you were to walk into Nathan Bower’s workshop with a blindfold covering your eyes, you might think—upon removing the blindfold—that you’ve just entered the factory of a master Swiss clockmaker. But you would actually be south of Traverse City, just around the bend from Moomer’s Handmade Ice Cream, where Bower handcrafts heirloom quality clocks, pouring his artistic instincts and raw appreciation for timepieces into each clock he makes. MyNorth videographer Kris Riley stopped by Bower’s new studio-showroom to talk shop and keep a close eye on the time.
