John Bouwman, the Clockmaker
The Clockmaker shop was established in 1972. The current owner, John Bouwman, has just as many years of experience in the clock and watch industry. John served his apprenticeship in Ontario, and then completed his examinations with the Ontario Watchmakers Association. This professional watchmaker designation gave him Membership to the United States and United Kingdom’s professional associations.
Continually seeking to upgrade his skills, John regularly attends training seminars in Europe and the US. He also mentors watch and clockmakers who are new to the industry and looking for training via distant learning education.
John is also a member in good standing with the top industry associations including:
I went in to Mr. Bouwman's shop to look at and discuss Hamilton watches. While there he took the time to answer my questions in a way that only someone in the business, and with the years of experience could do. You’re not going to find that level of knowledge from someone behind the counter of a department store! I highly recommend him, and yes, I did end up purchasing a watch and I'm very happy with it.
