Embix Watch Importing Co. has been in the watch trade in Canada continuously since 1959. Our striving for improvement provides the basis for our standard of quality, service and knowledge. We make every attempt to exceed the average trade level in both design and value in our market. We are committed to the integrity of value, and our pricing reinforces our competitiveness without any compromise of quality.
Embix Watch Co., was founded by our patron, Mr. Emil Bixenspanner, in conjunction with his wife Madame Edith Bixenspanner. He started the company by peddling watches from door to door, thus establishing a loyal customer base that until today remains the basis of our company.
When registering the company, he used a combination of the first few letters of his first and last name, to name the company, EMBIX.
In 1969 the company was joined by our President Mr. Robert Bixenspanner, and a few years later in 1973 by our Vice President Mr. Raphael Bixenspanner, who together with their parents led the company to grow from a small enterprise into a leader in the Canadian watch industry.
