Dr Linton Winder, MBHI

I started my watchmaking journey in 2000 when I signed up for the British Horological Institute's course on watchmaking.  I am now a professional member of the British Horological Institute and hold a Pass with Merit for the Certificate in the Repair, Restoration and Conservation of watches. I was also the recipient of the Arthur Tremayne Prize (for the best test piece) during my studies, and was mentored by the wonderful Robert Reeves, a UK-based Rolex and Omega accredited watchmaker. I am also a member of the British Clock and Watchmakers Guild and a Member of the New Zealand Horological Institute.

I work on all kinds of watches but my passion is for for timepieces from the golden age of mechanical watches; pocket watches from the 19th and 20th century and watches from 1920s to the 1980s. 

If you have a watch that you would like serviced, repaired or restored, then please get in touch. Many vintage watches may not be valuable, but they are often beautifully made and may be important to you personally. With a little TLC they can be brought back to life.  If you have a wristwatch or pocket watch that you would like restored then I am here to help, and will do my best to provide an affordable repair service. You are welcome to contact me for no obligation advice.

Please see my 'What will it cost?' page for guidance on pricing.
