A legacy of time keeping
Our journey began in 1957, as humble watchmaker based in Nashik, Maharashtra. Today, we are retailers and distributors of some of the leading watch and clock brands in the country. We are one of few companies in the world with in-house expertise of restoring and maintaining heritage outdoor clocks.

Late. Mr. Manohar Khadke, started as a watchmaker in 1957. Soon, he was recognised for his craft and become go to watchmaker for the city of Nashik.
Over a period, GWC built solid expertise in restoration of old, antique watches, clocks. Customers stated flowing in from across Maharashtra and beyond. Since then this expertise has been passed on from one generation to another

First Tower Clock Restoration
Nashik Municipal corporation called for experts to restore a British Era tower clock, which was non-functional for over an decade. A lot of experts tried their hand but could not succeed. And finally Mr. Vijay Khadke took up the challenge and fixed the clock in a month’s time.
