Andrew Markerink started Master Clockmakers after returning to Australia following the completion of a Churchill fellowship in Switzerland Holland and England. Clockmaking has its beginnings in the Markerink family from as early as the 18th century and seems to be part of the DNA.
Andrew and his staff have for many years sought to provide the skills which other than Master Clockmakers have long vanished in many parts of the world and Australia. We are now the only surviving firm to continue to make handmade clocks and watches to order in Australia as well as provide high quality restoration, conservation and service work for significant clocks and watches, as a result we are privileged to be able to conserve and restore significant parts of Australia’s Horological history.
Andrew continues to train existing watchmakers in New Zealand and Australia by means of courses and lectures organised through the peak industry body in both countries and the Institute of technology in Sydney. Maintaining and boosting the depleted skills level in both countries has been a foundation point for the work that Andrew has undertaken over the past 30 years.
