With a love of watches Craig Zaligson founded Midwest Diamond & Watch in February 1995, located in his childhood neighborhood, St Louis Park, MN. With the success of the burgeoning business he moved to downtown Minneapolis in the Hyatt Regency Hotel next to the infamous Manny's steakhouse restaurant. There he continued to grow and expand his business, primarily into a more specialized watch collector’s destination and changed his name to reflect his timepiece company to TimeScape USA LLC.
With continued growth, Craig decided to move his watch store to a larger location closer to the heart of downtown Minneapolis in December of 2011 at the US Bank building located on the skyway level. To better serve his customers, and eclectic clientele he relocated to the luxury shopping district of Edina, Minnesota and proudly opened the doors of TimeScape USA LLC. The present location, within Southdale Centre, is conveniently located across from the Southdale Mall and the Galleria at 6800 France Ave. South with front door parking for all our clients. With our new location, opened in August 2014, are looking forward to contributing and being a part of the neighborhood and continuing to serve the horological lovers community with many great years ahead.
