The numbers on the back plate of the movement is everything one needs to get a replacement. If the numbers match then the movement matches. If the clock is a pendulum unit, be sure to select the proper CM length that matches the old unit for the clock to keep the right time. Hermle 1151 Series

Hermle Clock 1161 Suspension Spring 1151 Pendulum Suspension Spring

Proper suspension spring for all of the 1151 hermle clock movement series. The larger suspension spring is 1 inch long and 7/16 inch wide for the clocks with a 8 1/2 inch or 10 1/2 in bob (round disk at the bottom of the pendulum). The smaller size is for the clocks with a 6 1/2 inch or less pendulum bob. You see if the larger suspension is used with a small bob, it may have trouble running. If the smaller spring is used with the larger bob diameters, the pendulum will wobble and the spring could break also. If ordering a new 1151 movement, keep in mind a new movement will come with the suspension already included. It sure is a good idea to have a spare also if you choose to get this and put it on the bottom of the clock case for next time. There will be a next time, there always is when it comes to suspensions, this would make a nice spare instead of searching endlessly in the future for it.
