My Name is Howie and I’m a Watchmaker
Thank you for checking out my website and seeing what I’m all about.
I studied this craft at the École nationale de l’horlogerie in Trois Rivieres, Quebec and graduated as a certified Watchmaker December of 2016. Such a great experience because I got some fantastic hands-on training at a world class facility.
I got my real world experience working for an independent in Vancouver for 3 great years. Having the opportunity to work for an independent was extremely valuable as I have seen and worked on many types of watches, like Rolex and Omega and all the common household brands plus many more. I enthusiastically faced plenty of challenges and it was here where I set a very high bar in terms quality and care when servicing watches.
I was also part of the design and manufacturing of the Halios Seaforth “Roldorf Edition”. This was an incredible ride and a dream come true. You can read about this experience here.
My goal is to serve the watch community with a loving touch and an open heart. Watches serve so many purposes in our lives and each one has a unique story. I’d like to bridge the gap that many watchmakers have with clients by offering a customer based experience using video to it’s potential. Come visit my contact page. Here you can see my availability and schedule an appointment. Then we can talk in detail about your watch repair needs. Thank you so much for stopping by and I look forward to meeting.
Here’s a little Slideshow of some of the watches and movements I’ve worked on. Enjoy!
