NEWSLETTER – June to December 2024

Our website is always under review so we can offer the best experience and up to date product information possible. 

Quick Overview:

We are sourcing now from 8 countries and the products can be specialised or generic depending on each and their specific use. Some of these item you may source yourself already, possibly from the same international supplier! However, our bulk purchase orders allow for us to make a margin, carry it here in stock and supply to you in 2 days by post, for about the same amount it would cost you to bring it in, taking up to a couple of weeks. Our service is well known to most current users as fast and reliable.

Our Website is constantly updated to keep a fresh new page or image layout, we still maintain the ease of use similar to our previous versions, but now made it easier to view on ipads, tables, laptops and phones. The platform now changes to suit each device to give optimum presentation. Along with this new platform there is many new great features and search abilities to ensure your time finding items is quick and easy.

Use the search bar to find items quickly using part number, key words or part word entries. An example is "Spring", this will find any item with a reference to spring, like Spring, Spring Barrel, Suspension Spring, Click Spring, Return Spring etc. More specific searches might be a main spring 17mm wide. Enter, spring17 and all the springs at this size will be shown. Try some different searches to see how easy this is.

A better quality of delivery of information for each individual item can be found when you click on the “Details” tab when on the item page. This will include Multiple Item images, Details & Specifications, Associated Documents, Video or PDF information, shipping information and more.

Customer quick re order pages on items purchased previously and an invoice accounts listings to see how much business you have done with us, which could be useful at the end of a financial year. More efficient account registration processes, including reverse account approvals for customers with old accounts with us that would like to link it to our online system.

Payment processes and descriptions are all just a little better and easier to follow to. Payments by default are through Paypal. If you do not use paypal, you can use your credit card within the Paypal gateway as a “Guest”. This ensures that you have the highest level of security.


Recent News:

Business is steady despite the ongoing economic cost of living issues. World prices continue to increase unfortunately, which means prices will increase along with brass and freight costs again by 4% to 8%. This year will see some price increases across a range of our products, so if you want deals on Clocks or replacement movements etc, look out for our rotating specials to be a winner. This year we will decrease the Retail price to clocks to accommodate better sales on a smaller turnover. We are looking for your support. 

Currently, I have increased the area of Cuckoo clock spare parts and accessories. It seems to be a harder area for customers to find replacement parts, of which i am happy to say I am trying to stock for you. Along with our extensive range of Hermle Mechanical Movements, Clock Hands and Accessories, Takane/UTS/Hermle/ISA/Seiko Quartz Movements, Clock Hands and Accessories, Case Hardware, Generic Clock & Watch Repair Tools and finally, Hermle Complete Table and Wall Clocks.

As you may already know, Clock Movement Importers has now found a new warehouse. On the Corner of Progress road frontage, and McRoyle Street, in the Brisbane western suburbs of Wacol, we have a lot more traffic past our door, increasing interest for replacement movements and clock repairs generally. Our new address is listed in the footer of our web page and in the contact us area. November 2024 will see us receiving a large back order shipment from Germany. We have had to wait longer to receive shipments over the last year due to multiple factors involving production of items as well as sea freight delays in the Red Sea. We look forward to being better stocked.

2024 – 2025 is a period of change and CMI will kick off all this year with some fantastic Complete Finish Clock sales, including all the ranges of Table, Wall and Floor Clocks. Look out for this during July through to December for amazing rotating specials. “Click Here to Go to the Webpage”.
