Welcome to the Website of the Toronto Chapter of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors .


We are an association of people in Ontario who meet together several times each year to share our interest in clocks and watches.


We Welcome Visitors to our meetings and encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about our club to please connect with us and check us out!  Contact us at 


We also encourage everyone to become a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors.  You can learn more about our National Membership at



Our meetings consist of a "Mart", where members share all things horological, by selling or exchanging in a marketplace setting.​


Our "Mart" is always filled with great items for purchase.  There is no cost to members to bring in items for sale (except the May Invitational).  Bring in one item or a whole table full!  This is a great way for members to sell items they no longer need, and other members to purchase items they have always been looking for.


As well we have seminars at each meeting where we share information about various aspects of our hobby. These include technical subjects relating to watches and clocks, historical information, and personal experiences.​


Our Last Meeting of the Year is our Premiere Event - The May Invitational.


Our meetings begin at 8:30 a.m.​
