I’m Ashton Tracy, a WOSTEP trained watchmaker with over a decade of experience in the luxury Swiss watch industry. I have factory training from Rolex and restoration experience on a number of watch brands. Watchmaking is my passion.
Currently, I focus on the restoration of vintage Rolex, Tudor, and Omega. This is due to extensive training and experience.
I offer a high-grade watch repair and restoration service for the most discerning watch collectors around the world. Originality is king in my workshop, second only to the needs of my customers. I believe the customer should have total control over their timepiece. All work comes complete with a photographic restoration report.
In addition to my watch restoration, I am a watchmaking instructor for the Horological Society of New York and I am also an author for various online and print publications focused on watchmaking. Those publications include Quill & Pad, WorldTempus, The FHH Journal, International Watch, Gear Patrol and others.
My Watchmaking Journey
I started my watchmaking journey at the age of 18. I attended the British School Of Watchmaking in Manchester, UK. It was there where I obtained my world-renowned WOSTEP certificate.
I then began my own workshop where I focused on the restoration of vintage chronographs and military watches.
A few years later I moved closer to home. back to Melbourne, Australia where I set up another workshop focusing on high-end brands such as Rolex, Omega and others.
My journey then continued after I met my Canadian wife which took me to work for Rolex, Toronto. There I was trained on their vintage and modern calibers. Due to this, I have extensive experience servicing and restoring Rolex watches.
After many years I have now returned to my passion. I operate my own restoration workshop where I focus on vintage pieces., but also accept modern Swiss and English watches.
Please contact me to discuss your watch service or restoration needs. I accept watches from all over the world, so please don’t hesitate to contact me wherever your location.
