Canadian Horological Institute

| « Return to previous page |

This very interesting, fact-filled site was created by Gary Fox following his serendipitous discovery of the notes and drawings of a student of this long ago school of watchmaking that operated in Toronto from about 1890 to 1913.  The school was run by Henry Playtner. 

Gary's passion for detailed research on this subject led to the early 2012 publication of his fascinating book titled Canada's Master Watchmaker:  Henry R. Playtner and The Canadian Horological Institute.  Contact him through the link ( to purchase a copy.
