Established in 1997, Fargo Time Canada has been providing customers with great watches that they can wear for years to come. With top brands such as, it’s no wonder why Fargo Time Canada is the number one destination for any watch lover. 

The watch business had been in my family for generations. My father was the last owner of the store. He was a great man who taught me everything about watches and how to sell them professionally. The owner of this store, Mr. Ansari has a long history with the watch industry. His father began his watch business in 1928, after WWI in British India. After his father migrated to Pakistan, his father established a watch store in the bustling city of Hyderabad. Mr. Ansari took over his father's watch store in 1964 where he would expand and a second location in the city. In the late 70s, Mr. Ansari migrated to Canada. He established 6 different watch businesses over the decades. ranging from wholesale concepts with mass production of designer watches supplying hundreds of retailers across Canada, to boutique stores displaying some of the top brands in the watch industry. In the 80's he had established a store on Nassau and Spadina in Downtown Toronto. He then purchased 835 Kipling Ave and established one of the largest watch production and distribution factories at the time. Supplying over 1200 stores across Canada including major companies like Woolco (which was later bought by Walmart in 1994) and Shoppers Drug Mart. In 1996, he opened Fargo Time Canada discounting brand name watches and disrupting the watch industry of Toronto. After spending 46 years in the watch business, he finally retired in 2010.

Today Fargo Time is online. Keeping the same principles intact, I have shifted to an online store providing the same customer service and authentic watches.
