Welcome to Minnesota's only dedicated watch boutique.

Founded in 1995, TimeScape has established itself as one of the nation’s finest timepiece boutiques. We provide high-end men’s watches and luxury watch winders both online and at our brick-and-mortar store in Edina, Minnesota.

At TimeScape, we respect our clientele’s impeccable tastes. This is why we favor watches and watch winders that blend creativity in design with steadfast commitment to mechanical excellence. Those who browse our collection will notice a strong focus on Swiss timepieces, as well as European watch winders crafted in the finest leather and wood. We also offer GIA and AGS certified diamonds, plus previously owned, rare and high-end watches.

At TimeScape, we have made value and unparalleled service our top priorities. Our selection is personally curated by our owner, Craig Zaligson, who applies his exceptional passion and expertise to discerning the quality, luxury, and style that honor the traditions of watchmaking at its finest. We also employ a Swiss-trained and certified watchmaker on staff.

Owned and Operated With Care and Commitment

Owner Craig Zaligson has invested his passion for fine timepieces into building one of the most trusted names in his field. He selects only the very best in high-end men’s watches and luxury watch winders, honoring the discerning tastes of his clientele. Not one to fall into complacency, he builds on his own expertise each year with continuing education, seminars, and trade conventions.

Our resident watchmaker is one of 400 Swiss certified in his trade working in the United States. Trained at the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute (AWCI) and the Watchmakers of Switzerland Training and Educational Program (WOSTEP), he has demonstrated an exemplary commitment to excellence in his trade. He also holds several additional industry ratings in a range of horological complications, making for a knowledge base that is as versatile as it is precise.

Growth Built on Quality and Dedication

In February, 1995, Craig Zaligson left a corporate career to found TimeScape under the name Midwest Diamond and Metals Trading Company. Through his steadfast dedication and commitment to excellence, he developed the business quickly enough to spur numerous relocations within a few short years. The company name changed as well, eventually becoming TimeScape. In August, 2014, Zaligson opened his present store location in Edina, Minnesota. Since its founding, TimeScape has grown to become one of the most trusted names in high-end men’s watches as well as luxury watch winders.

A Trusted Source for Watch Winders

TimeScape is an authorized dealer for five major watch winder brands, making us among the most reliable retailers for this high-end item. For those who may be new to these products, a watch winder solves a common problem among timepiece owners, especially collectors. Even an automatic or self-winding watch must be wound regularly to maintain its function and settings. A watch winder allows the owner to take off his/her timepiece, leave it for days at a time, and come back to find the functions and settings operating without disruption. Often crafted from wood and leather, these devices allow owners of high-end men’s watches and women’s watches to maintain their timepieces (be they one or several), without compromising convenience.

Offering Unparalleled Service

TimeScape operates under the mission to provide friendly customer service bolstered by thorough expertise. We want everyone who visits us, online or in person, to feel completely at ease. This is why we promise never to sell anything to a customer unless we honestly believe it will add to the quality of his/her lifestyle.

At TimeScape, we take honest and approachable customer service so much to heart that we’ve been members of the Better Business Bureau since 1998. We are proud to say that in that time, we have never received a complaint, maintaining an A+ rating.

TimeScape also offers a range of additional services, including timepiece and watch winder repair, appraisals, and opportunities to sell, trade, and consign. We hope you’ll enjoy browsing our website. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Explore our wide inventory today.

What to look for in a summer watch

June 29, 2015

With the scorching days of summer upon us what better time than to pull out or purchase that perfect timepiece for fun, sultry, adventurous times. What makes the perfect summer watch? Of course water resistance is a must and rugged durability with comfort. With the land of 10,000 lakes you are bound to get out and enjoy them whether its water skiing, boating, or fishing, we love our lakes in Minnesota and having water resistance in your watch is a must.

Airman 7

April 07, 2015

Here at TimeScape we have a special love for Glycine.  The scrappy little brand out of Biel/Bienne has been disappointing the naysayers by producing timepieces of consistent quality since 1914. 

In the same vein, the new Airman 7 is a tidy marriage of where Glycine is going and where it's been.  A model that debuted back in the late nineties, the 7 aspired to the kind of visual complexity then overtaking the rest of the industry.  Three separate time zones, each driven by a separate mechanical movement, all packed into one enormous 46mm watch case.

But like some libidinous sailor struggling to maintain a family in every port, how are you going to keep three movements happy in one can?  I'm here to say that the new Airman 7 somehow manages to stay happily married and still keep all the friends with benefits.

Basel World 2015 - Eye on Basel

March 24, 2015

Your own Mr. Timepiece, watch enthusiast and founder of Timescape, is jetting his way to the big event. Yes, the place to be if one loves watches: Basel, Switzerland.  And if you are into yodeling, chocolate and great scenic vistas, also a good place to be. I am always awestruck upon entering the exhibition hall. It is a sense akin to being clothed in the aura of horologic history and legend, that stunning first impression of timepiece nirvana. And there are thousands of adherents like myself, advancing mere feet at a time, jostling to continue their pursuit of fantasy.                                                                                                              

I will be forwarding images and video from Basel. 

More to follow when I return.
