Hi! My name is Patricia Delfin
I am the owner of The Clock Factory.
I am the 4th generation of a watch and clock repair family originating from Switzerland and my daughter Jessica will be the 5th.
The Clock Factory was born over 40 years ago and we specialize in selling and repairing watches and clocks. From battery changes to grandfather clock repairs we do it all regardless of the age of the timepiece. We pride ourselves on the tradition of fine workmanship.
Here is a little bit of background on how our horological history came to be… It started with my great grandfather who worked in a Swiss watch factory after World War I. In the late 1920’s it became very difficult for him to provide for his 12 children during the Great Depression, so he decided to join his brother in Marrakesh, Morocco where he had an established watch shop. With the continued success of the store in Morocco he was able to provide for his family in Switzerland.

THE CLOCK FACTORY
My grandfather followed in his fathers footsteps and also became an accomplished watchmaker and during the 1950’s the watch business started to boom with exports to the USA and Canada. Due to the increase in demand he opened his own watch movement factory in Switzerland.
In 1955 my father Oscar left Switzerland and immigrated to Montreal to organize an after sales service for watches in the Canadian distribution industry.
A decade later my parents moved to Toronto and continued the watch and clock business. Shortly after I was born and I remember quite vividly the evenings where the entire family would sit at the dinning room table assembling watches.
As time passed the business continued to operate from the family home until my dad later purchased a building on the Lakeshore and started The Clock Factory.
