Clockwise – a Launceston establishment serving the Tasmanian community for over two decades.

Clockwise specialises in selling, repairing, restoring and buying antique clocks and watches.


Graham Mulligan first became interested in mechanical clock movements in 1985 after receiving a gift, a book called Clock and Watch Repairing by Donald de Carle. Many years tinkering and pulling apart clock movements in his garage followed. This interest evolved into establishing Clockwise in 1993. Graham is completely self-educated and has read hundreds of books on what makes a clock tick and what stops a clock ticking.

After the early days of running the business from home, Graham and his wife Sallie had a short stint in the back of an antique store in St John Street. Opportunities opened up for them to establish a successful retail and repair store in Elizabeth Street. Clockwise was then drawn back to St John Street where they expanded and spent 8 ½ years repairing and restoring antique clocks with plenty of love and sometimes patience. Clockwise relocated to 67 York Street, Launceston in March 2013.

Graham’s work is an antidote to today’s throwaway culture. Restoring treasured family heirlooms to working condition makes Clockwise a unique and quirky business. Always up for a challenge, Graham can be found repairing other items such as: music boxes, mechanical toys, musical instruments and vintage car parts. It helps that he is skilled in manufacturing parts no longer available to purchase. This type of work requires great patience and concentration plus patience and understanding from clientele.
