CLOCK MOVEMENT IMPORTERS (CMI) is also a family business, started with a need to supply Australia with an outlet for quality German movements for enthusiasts and service to the trade 30 years ago. We are still currently based in South East Queensland. Though moving twice over the years we are now permently located at Wacol, Brisbane.

Harry Beaman initially imported the Urgos brand which followed on to the Hermle brand when Urgos was bought out by Hermle a few years later. CMI established the Australian Agents for Hermle Mechanical & Quartz Movements. During the last fifteen years of the Movement Agency, Harry's two sons, Jeffrey and Rodney have also joined the business. The support and effort of respective family members, and the strong presence in the movement and spare parts industry, aided our decision four years ago to take on the Australia Agency for Hermle Complete Clocks. In 2005 Stewart Findlay joined us as our sale executive and combined we service Australia for all Hermle requirements and more.

CMI decided at the conception to carry large quantities of stock, namely Parts, Movements and Clocks, so we could continue the good name we have worked for in the trade, being service and supply. We now carry 58 versions of floor clock covering, 400 versions of table/mantle clocks and 330 versions of wall clocks. We carry 20 different models of mechanical movement which requires dials, some pendulums and general or specific replacement or ancillary parts. Many of you will recognise our name from one association or another; we hope that you can confide in us, your need for Movements, Parts, complete Clocks; and technical support where ever necessary. The Hermle company has commented on CMI's ability to provide technical support, which they say is equal to or greater than any other source in the world for timepiece related information other than Hermle themselves.

Come and see us for any clock servicing, repairs, advice or to purchase a wonderful quality timepiece. Our trading hours are 8:30-4:30 Monday to Friday and by appointment only on Saturdays & Sundays.
