Three or four numbers followed by a dash, then a CM length underneath it if there is a pendulum. They are all consistent as they always have the numbers, then a dash, then more numbers.
Basically if there is a dash in the movement number, and its all numbers in the beginning with no letters like "A", and the clock was made in Germany, its a Hermle unit for sure.
Excellent availability at this time, we stock all Hermle units, with very few exceptions. Some special CM lengths maybe special order, if its not on the charts then it most likely will have to be made up special for an extra $20, this is a special order so please call it in. Hermle is the biggest movement producers in the world today. Not only do they have the most movements being made, but they also have the best part availability when you need a component such as a pendulum or a dial, or a complete clock kit. Hermle units generally last 22 to as much as 35 years. We usually get calls to replace units that were built in the early 80's or late 70's. If you look at the back plate of the movement you will see a couple numbers above all the other numbers. You will see such as a 77 or an 83 or so on. This is the date the movement was built.
Replacing these units rather than getting them cleaned and oiled is usually the smart way to go as it is factory improved, brand new, factory lubricated, easy to install, and it will cost less than a cleaning. Keep in mind however that there are different grades of the same movement number, some are cheaper and contain plastic parts. The Hermle units that we offer here at Clockworks are the best grade available with no plastic components for a very reasonable price.
