Our Story

Over a Century of Quality

In 1871, Solomon Joseph opened our first store in downtown Des Moines. He quickly gained a reputation as a quality craftsman and a meticulous timekeeper.

Over the years, we have seen many trends and styles, but have never lost sight of our dedication to customer service and honest work.
