Our very own brother and sister duo Stefanie and Anton, aka Directors and Clock Doc, were invited to do a photoshoot and promotional story for Xero, the accounting software company.  With over 1.8 million subscribers, they felt very privileged to have been selected and had an amazing day in Melbourne with the crew.  Treated like royalty, Stef and Anton arrived to a set designed specifically for them, with a handful of our clocks we shipped down.  It wasn’t difficult to find traditional German costumes in both their households and after a few warm up shots, they soon became comfortable behind the camera.  A great day was had by all, they made a few friends and even met the resident dog ‘Louie’, who looked like he was part of the scene.

The final pic looks absolutely beautiful as I’m sure you will all agree.  It has already been published in various newspapers and magazines. You can read the whole Xero story HERE.

The Refurbishment

If you haven’t heard about it already, The German Cuckoo Clock Nest has undergone a massive refurbishment.  After months in the planning, we closed our doors for two days and set about the mammoth task of shifting all the stock in the shop, including all of the Grandfather Clocks.  Then a team came in and lay the new floor, brought in custom made cabinets and new stands.

Can’t believe we got it all done in 2 days!  Then the freshly painted doors were open once again, but with a whole new modern feel.

Everything now has it’s place including purpose built cabinets for the prestige clocks and watches.  There is more room to move around the store and it generally feels much more welcoming.  We would love to see you again, so make it a date if you have time to pop in.


MAY 2018:  We had the Totally Wild team here from Channel 10 this month filming a segment on Cuckoo Clocks.  Our Clock Doc Anton Shafroth was only too happy to show them around and be the face of the German Cuckoo Clock Nest!
