The company has long been an icon in the watch repair industry & has a rich heritage of offering a dynamic variety of items to help insure continuation of the availability of watch material and related tools & supplies. Lois & Joel Held are the current owners, continuing the family tradition. The company can trace its roots back to Duluth, Minnesota, in 1907, when Lois' Grandfather, Harry Heifetz, worked for his Uncle, Julius Garon, who was traveling the upper midwest selling Swiss made watch material & related supplies. Harry's son Raoul managed the business & rapidly expanded its inventory to include items for Jewelers, Schools, Craftsmen, Teachers, Students, Engineers, Retail stores, both Mom & Pop, & chain stores, as well as many other businesses. As they moved out of Downtown Minneapolis into the Suburbs in 1980, each successive location was larger than the next. Their current location in St. Louis Park actually features 5 different showrooms themed to different areas of the business--Watch Material, Resale items, (such as Watchbands and Timex & Casio Watches); Retail Packaging & Display items, including Giftwrap, Boxes, & Presentation items; Jewelers Tools, Supplies, & Equipment; & the popular closeout room, where you never know what you may find from the warehouse, or one of the many watch material cabinets in the drawers in back. This showroom is the largest in the industry!

 

Also in their expanded inventory are a complete line of Findings, Solder, Energizer & Renata Watch Batteries; Watch Material, & Crystals for Seiko, Pulsar, Citizen, Bulova, & many hard to find or discontinued brands such as Rolex,Omega, Elgin, Hamilton, Gruen, Longines, Other Swiss Brands, pocket watches, & so on. In fact, they are still going thru many boxes that were stored in 3 trailers in the back lot from the move 13 years ago!
