Just confirming that I received the watch today. Was exactly as described, very nice piece.

Thank you!

May 22, 2014


Watch arrived today. What extraordinary condition and quality and finish of manufacture-movement (I confess, I did get the loupe out and gawp for 10 minutes)! I have two other VCs: a 1950s Ref 6032 that is very similar to this model, and a 91001 caree traditionelle from the early 2000s. This one is even better.

Many thanks to you both for sending it swiftly my way at a very fair price.

Just a quick message to let you know I have received my watch. I'm very happy with my purchase and it's exactly as described.

Thank you and I look forward to more business in the near future.

November 11, 2013

I just wanted to chime in in regards to the Tudor Prince Date watch I bought in September. Just wanted to let you know it's rarely been off my wrist since that time, and it is the best watch I have worn thus far. It is really beautiful, and I want to thank you for not only offering such a fine watch for sale, but for the superb customer service extended to me as well. It is all very much appreciated.


October 30, 2013


My watch has arrived and it is just great. Thanks for taking so much care with the packaging too!

Even though it is only a subscriber special, this is really the first decent watch I have ever bought, but I'm sure it will not be my last.

Cheers and thanks,

September 18, 2013

Very happy with the watch and the buying experience. I appreciate your patience with my many questions, this is my first decent watch purchase (beyond seikos and tissots) so I was bit nervous at first with a purchase of this size.


August 10, 2013

Hi Nick,

Just a quick note to let you know that the Omega arrived, my wife loves it.

Thank you again, it was a pleasure doing business.

Kind regards,

August 8, 2013

Hi Nick,

The Speedmaster just arrived. Great piece indeed!! Many thanks for your prompt service.


August 6, 2013

Hi Nick,

Just to let you know I love the watch. This is my first Rolex and not the last. Hope to do business with you again.


April 8, 2013

Hi Nick,

Am very happy with the Sub I bought on the 22nd of March! It is keeping good time: on a watchwinder +2 sec a day, when I am wearing it, +3-4 sec a day. Ocassionally I put it on a Nato strap and it looks very nice.

R.T., WA

April 3, 2013

Hi Justine and Nick,

I'd just like you to know that my Omega arrived 5 minutes ago. What a handsome, classy watch! It looks better in the flesh than any picture, I can tell you! It fits snugly, but I didn't realise it is so heavy!!! (All that gold! Hehehe!!!) I am very, very pleased with it! Thankyou!


March 28, 2013

Hi Margarett & Nicholas,

Just wanted to confirm that the Apollo 15 Speedmaster arrived safe and sound this afternoon. Absolutely stunning. It looks even better than the pictures in books and on the internet. It is wonderful to finally add this special watch to the collection. I can't get over what stunning condition it is in. Doesn't look like it has ever been worn. Amazing.

Thank you so much once again for the wonderful service and great stock you are able to source.


March 21, 2013


Just to let you know I received the watch today.

It is lovely – perfect for work!


March 13, 2013


The Omega has arrived and I have presented it to my father. He is very happy with the watch and loves the leather strap as well.

Thanks to Nick and you for all your help.


March 13, 2013


Received watch this morning. Beautiful.

Please thank Nick and your team for finding my wife a great watch. Hope she likes it :)

Kind regards

February 27, 2013


I would just like to confirm that my watch has arrived and I am incredibly pleased with it. Thank you for the efficient fast service. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and I will hopefully have further dealings in the future.


February 22, 2013

The Omega Speedmaster X-33 arrived well packaged and in great condition on Wednesday.

I am simply thrilled at my latest acquisition and again am in total awe of how simple it is to arrange a purchase from you both. I really do appreciate your exemplary service and professional conduct.

Yours sincerely,

February 21, 2013


I have taken delivery of the IWC mark XVI now. I'm very happy with the watch and intend to wear it for many years to come.

Thank you both for your professional and speedy service


February 18, 2013


The Omega Blue SMP has just arrived and it is exactly what I wanted. It is as described by Nick (looks brand new to me !!) and based solely on the couple of phone calls between us when I was looking for one of the elusive Blue SMP’s suggests to me that he is astute in identifying his customers needs and expectations. Given that the SMP’s have been very popular amongst your customers (as Nick writes ‘ flying out the door’) I was more than happy to wait whilst one that matched my requirements was sourced. I’m sure I’ll be enjoying it for many years to come.

Thankyou for the prompt, professional and courteous service. Joining the newsletter was a good move and I’ll still be keeping an eye on it and your website for education, some light entertainment (truckloads of GMT’s passing by here soon I think !!) and any future purchases.

Regards to all,

February 2, 2013

Dear Nick and team

Just a short note to say thanks very much for the easy transaction and that I am very happy with the purchase-nothing quite like this classic watch and its surprising how many other brands have based their watches on this design although there is nothing like having the original..

I look forward to the next purchase

Best regards

January 24, 2013

Sorry to trouble you again, but I just had to let you know that the Zenith has arrived…and I absolutely LOVE it!!

I can’t tell you how pleased I am and can’t thank Nicholas enough for convincing me that this watch was a gem. He is so right!

How it has lasted on the website so long completely escaped me, but I am very grateful that it did.

Best regards

January 15, 2013

The watch arrived the next day with no problem.

Thanks so much for the prompt service.


January 12, 2013

My name is M, from Newcastle.
I wanted to write to both of you in order to thank you for your time yesterday when E and I visited your showroom.

You work in such a lovely & professional environment, and you are surrounded by beautiful watches. The work environment is created and shaped by the people who work there, and I can tell that you have a great working relationship, as well as strong work ethics.

I was really pleased to see that you were busy, I work in retail and I always enjoy seeing other professionals keeping busy and closing deals. It’s nice to be the one buying things once in a while, and when I do, I really appreciate honest attention & advice, because I provide exactly that when I’m selling – so well done!

I’m wearing my Seamaster today, I particularly enjoy the wave design on the dial, and Blue is my favourite colour. I was pleasantly surprised that you had the full size watch in stock, with Co-Axial 2500 movement. I’m sorry to say that the Midsize was just too small for my liking, and I would not have been happy with it. Thank you to Margarett for sending me photos of the midsize Seamaster next to other watches.

Thank you for looking after me, I’ll be keeping an eye out for a watch, this time for E.

Enjoy a pleasant weekend and thank you once again,

November 28, 2012

Hello there,

A very big thank you once again for your perfect service. I've bought a number of beautiful timepieces this year from you and and all times I've been impressed by your care and attention.

I am today, delighted to say that my daughter in law just advised that the Gucci watch arrived today and she is extremely happy. Little does she know that thanks to you, the Gucci Gents pair has also been put aside!

As someone living overseas in Singapore away from family in Australia, you offer and deliver on the perfect gift service. I trust your knowledge of your beautiful timepieces, which is backed up by consistent quality service. I enjoy coming to Sydney too to view the timepieces in person. As you know I always come away with extra purchases!

many, many thanks,
S.R., Singapore

November 26, 2012

Hello Margarett,

The Rolex Submariner arrived safe an sound this morning. I am still over seas but my wife tells me it is beautiful. Quite a statement considering she is not a watch fan.

Thanks for yours and Nick's assistance in boosting my collection with this fine piece.


November 22, 2012

The Omega arrived yesterday and my wife loves it.

Great news, because – happy wife – happy life!!!!

November 16, 2012

Hi Nick

I just wanted to say thanks for the assistance you and your staff provided my wife yesterday in her search for a watch for my birthday.

The Mauboussin not only is eyecatching (and I think it is great that Y, as an architect, is giving me an Art Deco styled watch) but it has all the features I wanted.

I look forward to wearing it with pride (I got a sneak peek yesterday but it’s now away until the birthday!)


November 15, 2012

I received the watch yesterday....its fantastic. Thanks again.

J.G., WA

Hi Margaret,

Thank you for the shipping information and the Movado arrived in the mail this afternoon. I must say very impressive, the photos on your website do not do it justice. Absolutely beautiful. One small problem though - the wife has seen it, loves it and it's now on HER wrist. I guess I'll just have to keep looking!

Thanks Heaps,

September 18, 2012

Received the watch today and it is FABULOUS !

Looks exactly as pictured and explained what a great service thank you so very much !

I am sure that this will not be my last purchase from you!

Kind regards,

With sincere thanks for your individual attention.

Hi Margarett,

Thank you for the great service yet again.

OMG....... The bracelet is amazing! Arrived today.

The WOW factor is truly there. The photos were great, but in life it is even better. Fortunately for me it fits beautifully.

Looking forward to future purchases.

Kind regards

Hi Nick and Margarett,

I received the Planet Ocean today. Such a nice piece. Thank you very much for your service once again. I look forward to future purchases.

Kind regards,

May 30, 2012

Good afternoon Nick

I am pleased to say I collected the Jaeger from the post office this afternoon, all appears in good order and condition.

What a simple and elegant piece and it fits my narrow wrist very well.

Nick, I would think that back in 1949, when I was three, this watch would have been something special out of the box, not an ordinary consumer item, the world was getting over WWII, many things were subject to rationing, anything from Europe would cost an arm and a leg and would require patience to procure.

J W Walker and sons must have had high regard for Mr Scourse to present him with such a fine piece.

I’m glad I missed out on the Breitling, there will be others for next time.

Thank you, sincerely yours,

May 16, 2012

Good morning Margarett,

Just wanted to thank you & Nick in regards to the Omega Sea master Planet Ocean I bought from you last week.

The Service was excellent and I definitely will be back to get another watch soon.


May 15, 2012

I will take this opportunity to thank both Nickolas and your good self for your expert & prompt service on my purchase and will definitely relate this to my friends. I have always been a firm believer that a good pre owned watch is as good as the new item, after all they are meant to last for years.


May 3, 2012

Good morning Nick,

I just wanted to send a quick email thanking you for your assistance with the Omega.

It has arrived in perfect condition and I couldn’t be happier. I’m off to the Omega boutique in Chadstone to get a link taken out of the band and it will then fit perfectly.

Thanks again.


April 27, 2012

Thank you very much.

I think You and Nick are lovely people. Ever since I bought my first Rolex from you, I have told others about your wonderful service and caring manner.

I suspect you will see more of me in the future.

Many Thanks

April 26th 2012

Hello Nick,

I received the Omega this morning. What a beautiful version of the classic Speedmaster, it's been well worth waiting for. As I said, I've always been on the lookout for one of these and it does not disappoint. I resized the bracelet as soon as possible and I can't see it leaving my wrist for some time yet. It was fantastic dealing with you, very straight-forward transaction and quick in your responses. Thanks for your service and I look forward to the day when we can do business again.


April 17, 2012

The package arrived Monday morning. I am very pleased with the watch.

Thank you for your very efficient service.

Best regards,
April 16, 2012

My apologies – I meant to email you last week to let you know the watch arrived on Thursday in good order. It is absolutely beautiful! It is everything I wanted & more!! Thanks so much to you & Nick for doing what you do. I couldn’t have justified buying a brand new version but this is just perfect! I will cherish it as I’m sure my son will when I pass it on down to him in years to come.

By the way the watch fits perfectly too!

Thanks again and all the very best. I will be recommending you guys to anyone who will listen :o))

Best regards,

Nick and Staff,

November 16, 2011

I have just received my watch and you were correct when you said that the pictures did not do it justice. Thank you for your service. I know where I will be purchasing my first Rolex I cannot express how happy I am with this watch.

Thank you again

October 26, 2011


I received my Omega Tuesday morning as you promised. Thanks so much for the quick postage. The Seamaster is beautiful, just as you advertised. This watch is a worthy addition to my collection and I am thrilled with it.

I look forward to my next purchase from you, sooner rather than later I hope.

Sincere thanks,

October 13, 2011


Yesterday, the Rolex arrived and I resisted temptation to open it, waiting for my son to arrive home and see the look on his face. It was priceless! We are both thrilled and want to thank you for arranging the purchase and postage.

Special thanks and best wishes,

September 30, 2011


My watch arrived safely on Friday, my new Omega it is magnificent and worth the cost. I am absolutely thrilled with the watch, it is better than I expected it looks new. Thank you for the excellent service.

April 29, 2011

Hi Nick,
I just wanted to say thanks again for the quick and easy purchase of the IWC Pilot's Chrono last week. The quality of the watch is fantastic - the clear images, descriptions and the overall high quality of the watches you sell are the reasons I could decide on purchasing it without having to first see it in person.

This is now my 3rd watch purchase from you and hope to be able to find another amazing piece from you in the future.


March 15, 2011

I have just received my new Omega and it is magnificent. Well worth the wait and the cost. Thank you for the excellent service.


March 11, 2011

Nick and Staff,
The Omega watch arrived safely today. The mother of pearl dial is absolutely astonishing beautiful and most importantly my wife is ecstatic with her latest watch.

Again I most sincerely thank you for your wonderful service and it is a credit to you, your staff and your business that purchasing from interstate is such a simply and worry free process.

I look most forward to conducting further business in the future.


February 14, 2011

Please be advised that the Tag watch arrived this afternoon in good order.

Your photos surely did the watch justice, however the magnificent blue dial is absolutely wonderful.

It was a pleasure dealing with you and your service, postal and follow-up emails are a credit to your business.

I look forward to dealing with you again.

I am one very satisfied customer.

Thank again so much,

December 23, 2010

I look forward to returning to you again soon.

October 13, 2010

Hi Nick,
The watch arrived today. Again the photographs and description do not do it justice. The blue face is stunning. The condition of the watch, box and documents far exceed my expectations. It is a definite 10/10 in pristine condition. My recent purchase of the two Rolex's is far better than purchasing a new one. It was good doing business with you.

October 7, 2010

Hi Nick,
The watch arrived. The photographs and description do not do it justice. I would have given it a 10/10. The packaging and delivery was excellent.

September 27, 2010

Received the watch this morning. Very happy with it and thank you for making it so easy.
Will hope to buy again at some stage later.
Thanks again

Dear Nicholas,
The watch arrived a short while ago and whilst my wife has yet to see it, it is beautiful.
Your description of the watch online was, if anything modest. Over the years I have dealt with all of the major second hand watch dealers in Melbourne, and most of the new retailers, none of which have offered the service that I have received from you and your team.
Thank you very much and I look forward to purchasing many more fine timepieces from you in the future.

Best regards,

Hi Nick,

Just wanted to say “Thank you� for the superb Rolex Submariner I picked up yesterday.
The watch is sitting proudly on my wrist. This is my first Rolex but not my last.
By the way your new showroom is just wonderful.
Look forward to seeing you soon.
October 11, 2009

Hi Nick,

True to what you said the Seadweller is great! I bought it without seeing any photos, and trusted in your words. Although this was the first time I bought from you, I have been following your website and e-mails for about 2 years, and I felt I could trust you. You are a man of your words! Great doing business with you.

Kind Regards,

Dear Nick,

I collected my "new" Omega Seamaster Ref. 2255.80 - and I am just delighted with the watch - it is everything you said it would be - perfect condition and a pleasure to wear. It is a really gorgeous watch. I will now be looking forward to purchasing my next dream watch from you in the future.....I am sure I will have to spoil myself for the next big birthday. Thanks again Nick for the excellent and friendly service. I look forward very much to the next time we do business.

Kind Regards,

Hi Nick,

Well, you won't believe what has arrived already! I am happy that it was in and out of the mail system so fast. Thank you very much for packaging it up so carefully. I am very pleased with the watch (Panerai PAM 111) - it is exactly what I was hoping for. I have done a lot of research, so basically knew what to expect, but they do have quite a wrist presence don't they!
Thanks for your great customer service.
August 4, 2009


I recently purchased a beautiful 2 tone Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust from you. The purchase process was as good and timely as is my beautiful Rolex. It was a pleasure to do business with someone who is a professional in their field and I felt very confident that I was obtaining an item that was all I expected it to be.
Thank you for your very efficient dealings.

July 20, 2009


I received the wonderful Ladies Rolex Datejust (Ref. 79174 18K Gold and Stainless Steel combination watch with date) today that you’d so wonderfully wrapped up. I had a link taken out and am already enjoying wearing it. It looks and fits exactly as I hoped it would.

Thanks again,


July 16, 2009


the watch (Tudor Oyster Prince Day-Date) has arrived safe and sound and I’m extremely pleased with it and with your service. All best wishes

Nicholas Hacko and Staff.

I am writing to let you know my Gents Rolex Submariner Ref. 14060 has arrived and I must say the condition is superb, also I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone wishing to purchase a fine watch, it can be more than a little daunting to buy thru the internet without actually seeing the item.


July 3, 2009


Have received the Cartier Tank Francaise 2302 Automatic (Large size) and have to say we are absolutely stunned by the immaculate condition it's in. The pictures just don't do it justice! I now understand what you mean by unworn 10/10 condition, it is more perfect that I could have ever imagined. Suffice to say everyone is absolutely envious including my daughter who has been eyeing the tank for quite a while.


June 29, 2009

Hi Nicholas

I received the Oris watch today (Oris Artelier Chronograph Mens watch) It is beautiful, Thank you, It is just what I was after for my sons 21st, he will be thrilled.

Hi Nick,

Thank you very much! I received the watch (Tiffany and Co. Silver Atlas Lady's Midsize) and absolutely love it.


May 1, 2009

Hi Nick,

I just wanted to let you know I received my watch today (Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Co-axial Chronometer). Definitely the best thing to arrive in my in-tray since... well, since ever! The watch is exactly as you described, and a beautiful new addition to my wrist. On that last note too, it fits perfectly so thank you for re-sizing.

I look forward to purchasing some more watches off you in future ... so with any luck you'll hear from me soon enough.


April 14, 2009.

Hi Nick,

Mark absolutely loves his Zenith! He was totally surprised and thrilled by it and has been proud to show it to 'watchy' friends. I haven't given him the Maurice one yet, but it arrived in perfect condition as well. So thank you for the prompt and safe delivery of such precious items.

You were wonderful to do business with and I appreciate your help in purchasing these gifts.

Hi Nick,

Just to let you know that the Tiffany watch arrived extremely quickly, and it is in perfect condition. Like the last watch I bought from you, you stock such excellent products, and in the future I will definitely buy more from you.

Thank you again.


October 25, 2008.


Just wanted to pass on my personal thank you for the Zenith El Primero, it was every bit as you described or better and arrived on time. Thank you and I hope we can do more business in the future.


October 1, 2008.


Both of your parcels have arrived and are with me. The watch is beautiful. Thank you so much for you time and trouble.

Kind Regards


September 29, 2008.


I just wanted to say that my experience in buying the Rolex DateJust was excellent to say the least! From the correspondence through email to the buying of the watch from your lovely wife Tanya it was a pleasure and a insurance that I bought from a dealer with such knowledge and professionalism. I am sure to buy from you again. My only disappointment was not meeting you in person tho I am sure to in the future.

Kind Regards


September 19, 2008.

Dear Nicholas Hacko,

I organised the purchase of the watch from your website on Wednesday 17 September 2008, and it arrived in Brisbane the very next day on Thursday 18 September 2008. I found you prompt, courteous and professional to deal with, and hope that anyone wanting to buy a quality watch from a professional they can trust finds their way to your website.

Kind Regards


September 4, 2008.

Dear Nick,

Just wanted to say thank you; the Baume and Mercier arrived today, was perfect, and is being much enjoyed by my husband.

Best wishes,


August 29, 2008.


I received the watch in the mail this morning. That's only 24 hrs since I gave you my CC details. As you said, a beautiful piece - thanks very much.
Kind regards,


August 29, 2008.


I just wanted to say thankyou for the Tag Heuer Link 200m Quartz that my wife and I purchased from you the other week for our son’s 18th birthday. The watch was in beautiful condition … and as of this morning I can report that it looks absolutely fabulous on.

This is now the second watch that I have purchased from you and it won’t be my last. It is a pleasure doing business and my wife now understands why I speak so highly of you and your company. Your service is absolutely spot on. Friendly. knowledgeable, helpful and with absolutely no hard sell.

There was a bit of a gasp when Josh he opened his present this morning. There was no recognition of the Tag brand so the watch clearly impressed on its own merits. And he understood and appreciated the fact that it was a Swiss watch. Elegant yet rugged simplicity mixed with being engineered to perform under trying circumstances. Very male.

Once again, many thanks.

August 26, 2008.


The watch (Tudor Oyster Prince Day-Date 76200.) arrived yesterday. Looks terrific and I was able to wear immediately as a result of you removing links. Thanks for great service.

Hi Nick

Just a very short note to thank you for a watch that was all as you stated, the gift for my 13 year old nephew was an immense success his reaction to it was to shriek ‘sick’, to say he was over the moon is an understatement. Kindest regards

June 11 , 2008.


Thank you, the Baume & Mercier watch turned up this morning and is in excellent condition. I am very happy with the purchase.


June 06 , 2008.

Hi Nick,

Just wanted to pass on my thanks for everything when buying a Midsize Rolex Datejust Ref. 78240 (K523) for my wife. She is absolutely over the moon with it, as she should be ! It took her some time deliberating over the range of watches you had on offer so your patience was much appreciated.

My watch (Omega Railmaster Ref 2503.52) arrived today and I love it!

I have found you to be helpful and honest to deal with and I look forward to wearing this watch for many many years. Thanks for your great service and for a top watch at a fantastic price!

Just to let you know that the watch has arrived safely and looks lovely. I am sure that my husband will appreciate it for his silver wedding anniversary at the end of the month. Although we collect Omegas, the link with this one was the Carrera style .... to match his car.

Thank you for your assistance and advice along with the prompt service.

February 15, 2008.

Hi Nick,
Thank you very much for sourcing the Omega De Ville Power Reserve for T. It’s a little daunting buying such an expensive item over the internet and ‘sight unseen’, however after meeting you at your shop last year whilst on holiday, it was immediately obvious that watches are your passion and that your business is run in a very professional manner.
Any concerns I personally may have had about purchasing a watch over the internet immediately disappeared.
Your willingness to source this particular watch was very much appreciated and I would also like to commend you on the excellent quality of the photographs on your website. There were no Omega Power Reserves available in Perth for T to try on beforehand, so the purchase was largely reliant on your photographs and description. The watch arrived exactly when you said it would, securely packaged and via registered mail.
And I’m delighted to say the Omega surpasses all expectation – it’s a truly magnificent piece!
On behalf of both T and I, thank you once again Nick. It would be a pleasure to recommend your services to anyone considering the purchase of a quality watch from your company.
Kind regards
J.D., WA

February 6, 2008.

The Omega Seamaster arrived yesterday and I am absolutely delighted with it. For you to rate it is a 9/10 I was quite surprised at, as so far I cannot find a blemish on it anywhere. You must be a very hard marking master indeed. So, suffice it to say I am one very happy buyer and will definitely seek you out when I'm ready to buy again. Thank you very much.

Hi Nick, Just to thank you for the beautiful Rolex with the thunderbird dial. So many people comment on it. For a watch of only a few years old it is indistinguishable from new. Over the years I have collected over 30 good watches, and this is the pinnacle. It’s accuracy for a mechanical watch is amazing, gains about 10 seconds per week. Thank you again.

January 18, 2008.

I received the Cartier Basculante today. Thank you. I will check your web site every week. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.

I am writing to you to thank you for the way in which you handled my recent purchase of a “K� series Rolex 14060M Submariner. I set it by the World Clock on the 31st of October 2007. Today, the 30th of November , 30 days later it is exactly 1 second fast! For a watch that is non COSC certified it is amazing accuracy. Even my 16233 Datejust can not compete with that . To say that I am extremely satisfied with this watch would be an understatement. This one is a keeper! Kind regards

Ciao Clockmaker Team,
Thank you for the excellent service you gave me today. I really appreciate your professionalism and helpful manner.

September 26, 2007.

Thank you again for sourcing Omega Speedmaster moon watch for me. It is elegant and interesting in view of its original intended use ( the Apollo moon missions ). I plan to take very good care of it and eventually pass it on to another generation- but not for some time yet!

Dear Nick,
Just a brief note to thank your time and patience that resulted in me buying a Rolex Air King from you. I have found many of the other retailers of "good watches" rather intimidating to deal with and your relaxed approach and expertise was a pleasant surprise. The price was also great compared to my internet searches.

July 26, 2007.

Good to talk with you today.Thanks for the Rolex Subbie I am very very pleased. This makes the third watch that I have now brought from you!

July 26, 2007.

Hi Nick,
Thanks again for doing such a nice job on my late father in-law's late 50s Omega Seamaster. It does look very classy. And a really big thanks for giving me the nice leather strap to set it off so nicely.

June 25, 2007.

Omega Geneve delivered as planned - looks great. Many thanks for your help.

April 25, 2007.

Dear Nicholas,
Thankyou again for your expertise and professionalism with the recent purchase of my 'Y' Series Rolex Sea Dweller. Having bought and sold many watches, particularly specialist diving watches I certainly agree with you that the Rolex Sea Dweller is without peer! The condition of my Rolex is superb and your service is exemplary. As you know I have many different diving watches in my collection (Omega,Tag Heuer,Precista,Marathon, to name but a few) but the Rolex seems to be perfect in every sense. It has remained constant in its size and style as well as being one of the very few that has an 'in house' movement. The trends for large,small, thin, thick, gaudy and staid are just that; trends. I would certainly recommend your service as well as your keen eye for detail. A common saying amongst my watch friends is that your watch tells everybody else a lot about you and that in a modern world full of silicon chips the mechanical automatic watch is the last bastion of fine art that can be used, enjoyed and admired. Thankyou and I will call into your store again soon. Kind regards,

June 20, 2008.

Hi Nick,
I have received the watch winder and it looks lovely. Thank you for a very positive experience.

February 14, 2007.

Just to let you know that W. was “gob smacked� on being given the watch this morning. (Lady's 18K gold/steel Rolex Datejust) It really is in beautiful condition and with the diamond face looks truly wonderful on her wrist. I didn’t mention at the time but the watch has extra significance to us by virtue of the fact that it was manufactured in the same year that we met. It was a pleasure doing business on Monday. I am one very happy customer. Thanks again,

February 12, 2007.

Got the watch (Panerai PAM086), fantastic as described, thanks mate. Best regards,

February 7, 2007.

Dear Nicholas,
Just wanted to let you know that my new watch (18K white gold Omega) arrived safe and sound promptly at 1pm today. I have never purchased anything so expensive over the phone and sight unseen before and I must admit that I was a bit nervous. The photos seemed to indicate a lovely watch but when I opended the box I was blown away by what is truly a stunning time piece. It looks great on too! Having never owned anything better than a Seiko and having worn Swatches for years now, I have always dreamed of owning something special. I have lusted after an AP Royal Oak for years but it was always more than I could justify to myself and more importantly to my wife! However, I am extremely pleased with this watch and do not feel in any way that I have been forced to accept second best. The quality, style, features and design of this watch is amazing and I know that it will give me a life-time of enjoyment. Thanks for your kind assistance in making this purchase smooth and enjoyable. Regards

January 25, 2007.

Thanks for help with delivery. The Glycine SST watch arrived safely and it is magnificent! I’m planning my next purchase from www.clockmaker already.

Dear Nicholas,
The Rolex Submariner was in flawless condition (I wasn't expecting the case sides and lugs to be wearing the protective plastic still) but the Panny was not as you had described it - in my view, it was in better condition than you had suggested. Don't be so hard on yourself! Once again, it was great doing business with you: hope to do so again soon.

I have received a 16610 Submariner from Nick and can only give the highest recommendations to any Rolex buyer. He is a person who clearly believes that not only do you buy the watch, but also the seller. Nothing is too much trouble, shipping is extremely fast (overnight) and I am completely satisfied with my experience. I highly recommend him to any high end watch buyer.

November 27, 2006.

Dear Nicholas,
Thanks again, it's a beautiful watch and I wear it every day with great pride. My sincere regards,

Thanks, Nick!
The Submariner just arrived, adjusted by you already to Queensland time. And, when you said it was ‘as new’ you certainly meant it. This watch is brand new – supplied, I see, originally by Oriental Watch Company, Hong Kong, a company I know well which supplied my first Rolex. I’m delighted and glad I bought it.

Hello Nicholas,
I really appreciate your help with the purchase of my husbands watch [ ROLEX Submariner Ref 16610 ] . Making such an expensive purchase can be stressful, especially when you haven't seen the item you are purchasing but you had very clear photo's and description of the watch and it is exactly as you described 'like new'. The watch was packaged really well and arrived safely. Once again, thank you for your help with this. My husband was speechless when I gave it to him! Kind regards

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your excellent service. You managed to repair a problem that other people had deemed uneconomical for a fraction of the other quotes. Not only did you fix the watch, it was returned polished and cleaned. I am over the moon at how quickly you completed the work, it was an easy transaction with great communication, you kept me up to date throughout the stages of your work at no point was I left in the dark. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Kind regards,

I am very pleased with the Rolex I acquired earlier this week (16613). As suggested, I have spoken with my insurer and they will insure it as a specified item on a replacement basis, and if unavailable will provide its insured value for an alternative.

Dear Nick,
I am writing to express my thanks for the fantastic job you have done in servicing and restoring my Rolex Oyster wristwatch. I am over the moon with the result: I had no idea a watch could be restored to such a beautiful condition .. just like new! My Grandfather, from whom I inherited the watch, would be very impressed.

Thanks again for your efforts.

Hi Nick!
Just got the watch today (although they did try to deliver it yesterday). It is absolutely gorgeous and running beautifully. I am SO thrilled. It fits great...(I have a small wrist, so it's fashionably loose)...and I just couldn't be happier!
Thank you so much. I can't tell you how much I love the watch and how much I appreciate all the trouble you took to get it to me.

Dear Mr. Hacko,

On June 14, 2000, I received a Rolex stainless perpetual date watch from your company. I'm writing to inform you how very happy I am with both the watch and the service I received from your company. I received the watch in a timely fashion, even though we are far apart. The watch was in excellent condition and was just as described by you. You also treated me in a very courteous and professional manner, regarding the questions I had after the sale. I am very pleased with both this watch and the company I chose to purchase it from. I highly recommend your company. To anyone looking for a watch, the Hacko Watchmaker Company delivers a product as advertised at a very fair price with outstanding customer service.

I have a 50 year old pocket watch which I bought new when I went work on the railroad in Canada.
There are very few people who could and whom I would trust to repair it. Mr. Hacko is one of them. He has, on several occasions manufactured the tiniest of parts which had failed over the 50 years of constant use and as result I still use it today.
In addition Mr. Hacko rebuilt a hundred year old mantel clock which we were able to give to our son as a wedding present.


Dear Sir

On the 29th March 1999 I bought into your shop a very treasured pocket watch, which was owned by my grandfather. Prior to this I had been told it was worthless, you looked at it, said it was made in 1881, offered to take it to pieces to find the fault, also said no charge if you could not fix it, A$150-$200 if you could. My husband and I were very impressed with your attitude, politeness and honesty. These three qualities are so hard to find in folk today, least of all in business. After getting your phonecall to say it was ready, we come to collect it. The dull, old looking watch we had left in your care was now a bright, shiny treasure with a clear new glass, new minute hand, all parts checked and working, also keeping good time.
Thanks to yourself, your care and genuine belief in the time-piece, we now have something old, workable and treasured to give our grandson.
Thank you sincerely for so much,
your grateful customers
