Charles Frodsham (15 April 1810 London –1871 London) was a renowned English watch and clockmaker. He took over Arnold & Co in 1843 at 84 Strand, London. The family business, Charles Frodsham and Co. still holds the Royal Warrant of clock suppliers to the British Royal Family. He was master of the Clockmakers' Company in 1855 and 1862.
An example of a clock by Frodsham is a sidereal clock on display in the Norman Lockyer Observatory.

Time kept by a Frodsham clock was the official time piece of Australia when it was founded by the British in 1788. The clock remains on display at the Royal Observatory in Sydney.
Frodsham's demonstration double-escapement skeleton clock, numbered 883, manufactured for the Great Exhibition of 1851, is believed to be unique.
