There was a young watchmaker from OZ

Tim Stewart's workplace springs to life at the top of every hour. It happens, quite literally, like clockwork.

A symphony of bells, chimes, whistles, dings and dongs takes hold of the antique clock shop, a place containing timepieces that date back more than 400 years.

It could be said that Mr Stewart is as rare as some of the items he repairs; at the ripe old age of 27, he is the only apprentice watchmaker Victoria has had for at least four years.

"It's quite scary to think of that," he said.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
