More About the History of Cape Watch Tools & Jewellery Supplies

It all began in 1962, when a general dealer – Bloomberg & Kleinman sold off their watch spare parts division to Dave Talmut & Max Wiener who were the very first directors of Cape Watchmakers Supplies & Tools who in turn, until the 80s supplied parts to the industry until the advent of the Japanese Quartz watch movement. It was in 1986 that new owner, Colin Browne began investing in Jewellery tools and by the 90’s the diamond industry grew substantially therefore growing the range to include diamond evaluating equipment was the next logical step.
By 2004, the baton was handed down to Colins son – Rodger who then rebranded the business to Cape Watch Tools & Jewellery Supplies – bringing a stronger identity to the diamond and jewelry industry. Under the directorship of Tennille Hoge in 2012, JewelQuip was incorporated into the brand bringing new expertise and product development including diamond polishing equipment into its already diverse product offering in 2015. We are mindful about the convenience of shopping online as such our website itemizes our substantial offering complete with up to date pricing.
Present day Cape Watch Tools & Jewellery Supplies offers trade services and consultancy under Conrad Basson who has considerable experience in the manufacturing side of the industry. Over the decades previous addresses included St Georges Mall, Burg Street, Long Street and Church St so we proud ourselves as being a truly Capetonian company.
