Tristan Wier of Sturgeon Bay helps people keep time the old-fashioned way by keeping watches and other timepieces in good working order. He’s the owner of “WierClock-Clock and Watch Repair and Sales”. The Beloit native was visiting Door County when he was 15 and had just bought a mantle clock that didn’t work. Wier took his clock to a repair shop and watched as the shop owner brought his time piece back to life. He also sent Wier home with books, eight-millimeter films, and other materials about clock and watch repair. Wier later went to school to learn more about the trade and finished a three-year course in five months. Wier now runs his shop on N. Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay and his customers make the job worthwhile.
Tristan Wier has a worldwide following thanks to the internet. He recently did repair work for two customers in France and watch sales to shoppers in England and Austrailia.
