Our History

I write these few lines explaining our family's history in the watch industry. 

If you ask the old residents of Etobicoke, a suburb of Toronto, about Fargo Time Canada, they would tell you about this 5000 square foot watch store in the middle of two garages located at 835 Kipling Ave. Established in 1997, Fargo Time Canada was one of the leading watch retailers in the Canadian Market. With top brands such as Omega, Rolex, Cartier, Concord, Ebel, Tag Heuer, Tissot, Hamilton, Seiko, Citizen, Movado and other brand names, the concept was simple, keep a low overhead and provide discounted prices for some of the top brands in the watch industry.

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.

Being his son, I have opened back the watch business using the same domain name in memory of that store. I am following the same principles as my father in bringing brand name watches at discounted prices to the Canadian and world market. Being raised in a watch store half of my life, I have long history with the watch industry. I am using previously established sources to source these brands and bring them to you at discounted prices. People ask me how I can discount these watches? It's simple, source authentic brand names, keep overhead low, and provide amazing discounts. 

I thank you for taking the time out for visiting our online store. I hope you have an amazing experience. If something is wrong, please reach out to myself or my staff and we will make it right.
