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've used him twice without any issues. He fixed my wife's watch which was ruined by accidentally dropping it in water. He repaired it within a reasonable amount of time (about 2 weeks) and it has worked perfectly since. I also use him to replace batteries in our expensive watches since I don't trust a kid at a department store watch shop with a high end watch. John is very knowledgeable about watches and clocks.
