Timothy E. Eaton started a department store in Toronto, with a large mail-order warehouse out of Winnipeg that supplied the prairie provinces. He soon had outlet stores in every major city across Canada. He was much like R. W. Sears in his marketing, and he became a Canadian institution. He sold railway grade pocket watches in his stores and through his catalogs. They included the Waltham CPRs and CRTS models.
