Our History

In 1911, Herman Perrin traveled to Canada from Switzerland to head up the watch repair department of 50 watchmakers for Eatons. Soon after, he began to import and sell balance staffs, mainsprings, and crowns for watches, leading Herman to the importing of other watch parts. In 1929 Herman was joined by his nephew William and H. & W. Perrin Co. Ltd. was formed.

Keeping with family tradition, years later the company was taken over and lead by Edmond Perrin. Edmond, much like Herman and William, valued the importance of knowledgeable, friendly customer service and, perhaps most importantly, dependable service. In the 1970's and 1980’s, Edmond Perrin was joined by both of his sons, sharing with them the important traditions that H. & W. Perrin values.

From generation to generation the Perrin family has made significant strides in creating one of Canada’s leading watch and clock material houses. From our humble beginnings, we are now a complete service supplier of tools, supplies & equipment for watch and clock makers, jewellers, and fine technicians.

Currently lead by Maurice Perrin, and Edmond Perrin Jr., H. & W. Perrin Company Ltd strives to adapt and change with the industry and the ever- advancing market of watches and clocks.
