The Major has been collecting timepieces for over 20 years since his retirement and is well known amongst horologists and collectors around the globe not only for his knowledge of and passion for clocks, but his wonderful dry sense of humour!

In 1992 Major Brook opened the Melbourne Clocks Museum and Restoration Workshop at 424 Bluff Road Hampton. Bonhams & Goodman will auction over 220 clocks and related items from the museum. Meticulous cataloguing of the sale has
been jointly conducted by James Hendy, National Head of Decorative Arts in Australia and James Stratton, Head of the Clocks Department at Bonhams in London.
