We Have Many Years of Experience, Not Just In Watchmaking

Roldorf & Co. is an independent watch company. This path gives us the ability to be unique and to adapt quickly to changing conditions. On top of that, each of us brings a unique set of experiences outside of watchmaking to the company - from scuba diving instruction to research and development - which really enables us to innovate.

Roldorf was founded in 1990 by Jason Gallop to offer wholesale and retail clients access to watch services. We made our own watch in 1993 using a Gibeon Meteorite. In 2015, Roldorf took over Jason's father's business in downtown Vancouver's Bentall Centre, with a clear focus on unique independent micro-brands, all the while bringing watch service and restoration to the forefront, quite literally.

Above all, Roldorf & Co. is a friendly space for watch lovers! Drop in and not only see, but feel the difference!
