If the clock chimes before or after its supposed to, do this:
1. Rotate the minute hand forward until the clock chimes.
2. Hold the time set knob on the rear of the movement.
3. At the same time push in on the minute hand and turn it to 12

Black metal serpentine style hands measure the dial diameter, the minute hand would be close to half this size. For use on Hermle quartz movements.
Hermle quartz units may die in 7 years or 15 years but when they do die it is usually at daylight savings. Something to do with turning the clocks back or forward then it decides to end its own life. The only solution is to replace the unit with a new one. If you would like the same unit please order your Hermle quartz unit from this page.
You would need to take the old movement out and then measure the shaft that the hands go on. Everything that sticks out in one measurement.
These are good quality movements and they're made in Germany. They last the average time for a Quartz movement and they sound good, but when they do decide to die it's usually when the time is messed with.
To remove the movement you would hold the minute hand still while turning the center hand nut to the left with needle nose pliers. Then the minute hand will just fall off. Then you twist and pull the hour hand towards you and it will come off as it is a friction fit only. You will then see a nut that is holding the movement to the dial. I really do not know why they have designed it this way but it is slotted on both sides. The thing to do is to get a big flat screwdriver on one side and see if you can turn this nut to the left. If the nut is on there very very tight then we have a special tool you can get for this and it does not cost much. If the nut is on too tight you just risk slipping with the flat screwdriver and scratching the dial face. Anyway with that nut turned to the left and off, the movement will just fall out the back of the case. Then you can measure that shaft that the hands go on and get a new unit.
The 2114 or 2214 plays Westminster or Bim Bam options
The 2115 or 2215 plays Westminster or Ave Maria options
The 2116 of 2216 plays Westminster or Silent Night (However these units have a high defect ratio in this series)
2114 / 2115 / 2116 are NON pendulum. 2214 / 2215 / 2216 are pendulum units.
Any of the above units are compatible with each other. If you have a 2116 now and it's giving issues you can replace with 2115 or 2114.
Install two "C" size alkaline batteries according to the +/- symbols in the battery holders. If the speaker is mounted to the clock motor, the speaker will need to be temporarily removed in order to install batteries. Grasp around the outer edges of the speaker with your fingers and pull gently. Care should be taken not to damage the paper center of the speaker. Replace speaker after batteries have been installed and chime selection options are set. The quartz movement in this clock is highly accurate and has been adjusted at the factory for precise time keeping. NO other adjustments are necessary.2. Hermle Quartz Time Setting
Set the time by turning the minute hand or the TIME SETTING knob (clockwise or counter-clockwise). Never turn the hour hand to set the time, it will turn automatically with the minute hand. When setting the time, the clock will not chime at the ¼, ½, or ¾ hour positions. Additionally, when setting the time using the TIME SETTING knob, the clock will chime approximately three minutes before the hour - this will automatically be corrected during the first hour of normal operation. The correct chiming will start on the next full hour - until then the clock may also chime out of sequence. It is important that the clock movement be allowed to operate for at least one hour for the chime sequence to become fully functional.3. Hermle Quartz Chime Selection
Use the switch with symbols O,S,W to select the chime according to the following settings: O = Silent W = 4/4 Silent Night melody and full hour strike W = 4/4 Westminster melody and full hour strike4. Hermle Quartz Autonight / Volume Control
Use the switch with the moon, sun, moon with a slash through it, and symbols to select automatic chime silencing or volume reduction. Slide the switch to moon and the chime volume will be reduced for the next 8 hours beginning at the next full hour. Slide the switch to the moon with the slash through it and the chime is silenced for the next 8 hours beginning at the next full hour. Example: Switching to the moon to position at 9:10 p.m. will reduce the chime volume from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. Slide the switch to the sun to cancel the chime volume reduction or silencing.5. Hermle Quartz Other Features
a) This movement features a 4/4 Westminster and 4/4 Ave Maria chime melody. It plays ¼ of the melody at quarter past the hour, ½ at half past, ¾ at three quarters past, and the full melody on the hour. Slide the 4/4 chime selection switch up for 4/4 melody mode. Slide the switch down to play the full melody on the hour only. The clock will strike the hour in either position. b) Adjust the volume level of the chime with this knob.6.
