Marathon Watch was founded in 1904 as Weinsturm Watch, later to be named Wein Brothers. In 1939 Morris Wein founded Marathon Watch in Montreal, supplying fine precision timepieces to retailers throughout North America. In 1941 Marathon began manufacturing timing instruments for the Allied Forces.

In 1969 the Wein family ventured into housewares forming the Marathon Management division of Marathon Watch; supplying a wide spectrum of housewares and other related merchandise.

Tradition continues today with its fourth generation and the beginning of a new era. With that being said, we welcome you to our new destination portal www.marathonhousewares.com
