About us

We are a watch and leather accessory design company, based in Quebec, Canada. 

My journey as the entrepreneur behind Haydn didn't start yesterday. The idea of creating a brand has been on my mind for as long as I can remember. I have been collecting watches since I was a teenager.  

By buying timepieces from high-profile brands, I soon realized that a huge proportion of the retail price was based on the brand alone and the lifestyle behind it. The craft itself and the attention to detail were often overlooked. 

I'm coming from a background of Finance, but I also have a strong passion for art and design. Combining business and design allowed me to have the best of both worlds. And now, I have the chance to live my passion to the fullest with Haydn!

The final push to create Haydn came with the realization that time flies and that no moment should be taken for granted.

My nephew was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis as a newborn. Today at only 6 years old, he is a strong, energetic and funny young man as well as an awesome hockey player.  Luckily for him, he has awesome family support, access to great medical care and now the chance to take part in a life-changing clinical trial.

Company values

Haydn prides itself to only selling watches with Swiss movement, sapphire glass, high-end plating, and stainless steel. The same standard apply for the quality of the leather that is full-grain, grade A, Italian and North American. We will never settle for less.

We are fully committed to the satisfaction of our customers. We will always make sure your experience with Haydn lives up to our very high standards, starting with the look of our products, the warranty, and the return policy. We are very confident that you will love our products and that they will become staple in your wardrobe. Our collection will showcase your individuality and style.

So many watch and leather companies have popped on the market in the past years. At Haydn, we do not want to be compared with any of these companies. We are the brand that sets the bar high for the others. We want our brand to resonate with quality at a price point that can only be achieved with a lean cost structure and awesome partnerships with world-class suppliers!

The Haydn brand is very committed to giving back to the community. We are very proud to have partnered with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Canada and with each Haydn product purchased, an amount will go directly to the Foundation.
