Clocks has developed a reputation for being one of Melbourne’s leading
horological centres. Douglas Macquet became the owner of Canterbury

At Canterbury clocks Douglas specializes
in restoration and repair of antique and modern clocks and also offers
a comprehensive range of fully restored antique clocks for sale.
