About

My name is Ashton Tracy, and I am a WOSTEP trained watchmaker with over a decade of experience. I have previously worked independently servicing many Swiss brands & for the Rolex service center where I trained on most calibers.

I now operate my own watchmaking workshop in Canada where I focus on the restoration of vintage watches with a special focus on Rolex, Tudor & Omega. I also specialize in the restoration of highgrade pocket watches as well as vintage military watches and classic manual wind chronographs. I also service IWC, Nomos, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet, Breitling, Cartier, Panerai, Jaeger Lecoultre, Zenith, Bell & Ross, Raymond Weil, Tag Heuer & more. 

At my workshop, I focus on the proper service & repair of watches. Many watchmakers cut corners and lack the training & experience to complete restoration work properly. I ensure all watches are completely disassembled, inspected, worn components repaired/replaced (or manufactured when needed) and meticulously rebuilt. Quality control is of utmost importance with watches being tested extensively. I stand by all my work with a 2 year guarantee. 

In addition to my watch restoration I am a contributing author to various online and print publications which focus on horology. I am also a Horological Society of New York watchmaking instructor to the public.

Please get in touch to discuss your restoration requirements. My customers come from all over the world, so please let me know where you are inquiring from.
