The Hermle 1161 clock movement is a triple chime chain or cable driven unit with three weights. This is a rectangle shaped movement with the movement plate size of 140 x 200mm and takes a size #8 crank (If cable). What is being offered on this page is the movement only with out the pendulum, gong or dial. These movement come as the movement itself with new chains / cables and pulleys, hand nut, suspension spring and leader.
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.
This version of the 1161 series was made for a very short time. It is no longer in production. However because of the age that the clock is, it is still better to replace than to spend money on a rebuild that will not last. Since the new movement will have a center winder that is about 3/4 of an inch below the original, it is possible to drill another hole in the dial and use a brass button (available at any fabric store) to cover the old hole. You also have the option of ordering a new dial from us along with the movement.
