Watchfinder was founded on the belief that purchasing a beautiful, prestigious timepiece should be more than just a transaction. It should be an experience, and a seamless one at that. When John Ansari founded Watchfinder in 1999, he rooted his business on the value that owning a luxury watch represents an appreciation of quality, fashion, and excellence. That’s why he chose to situate his first showroom in the dynamic Yorkville neighbourhood, an enclave of Toronto that indulges in upscale charm.
With over 15 years of experience, John is recognized as an expert in contemporary watches and vintage timepieces such as Cartier, Rolex, and Patek Philippe. With the expertise of his professional watchmakers and sales personnel, Sean always continues to explore new styles and items to keep up with what is current and beautiful in the world of timepieces.
In addition to our brands of fine watches, we also offer the possibility of trading, direct selling, and consignment, which means we always have a rotating selection of excellent and certified pre-owned pieces priced with affordability in mind.
At Watchfinder, our values include authenticity, expertise, and above all, excellence. We live by the goal of delivering an enjoyable experience for all of our clients. Every day we are inspired by the intricacies and elegance of the watches and jewellery we carry, and we want our clients to feel the same way.
