Jacob Kock (or Koch) Jacob Koch was born in 1737 and worked as a clockmaker in Stockholm. His father Johan Koch was a mechanical engineer and a native of Cölln on the river Spree (now Neukölln, Berlin); he came to Sweden in 1664 and became clockmaker to the court of King Gustav III. Jacob was his father’s successor at court. He died in 1805; many of his clocks are in museums today. Source: http://watch-wiki.org/index.php?title=Kock,_Jacob, as of 09.10.2015
