How old? Hermle Movement Date Codes

Dating a Hermle clock movement by decoding the date code stamp. This is to know when the movement was made and decide if the clock has lived its life and is time for a new one. After finding the Hermle movement date code, it can be figured out how old the clock movement is with the below chart. If the clock is over 20 years old it is time to replace it. If the clock is under 20 years old is the only time to consider fixing the movement.

Date Code System Change

Prior to using Hermle movement date codes, early movements before the year 1987 have just the stamp of the year on the back of the clock movement, 81 just means 1981. From 1987 on they used letter codes instead of numbers to represent the year made. Such as the year 1988 is only marked with the letter A instead, and 1989 is the letter B, and 1990 as the letter C etc.
Hermle Movement Date Codes

76 = 197677 = 197778 = 197879 = 197980 = 198081 = 198182 = 198283 = 198384 = 198485 = 198586 = 1986
87 = 1987A = 1988B = 1989C = 1990D = 1991E = 1992F = 1993G = 1994H = 1995I = 1996J = 1997
K = 1998L = 1999M = 2000N = 2001O = 2002P = 2003Q = 2004R = 2005S = 2006T = 2007U = 2008
V = 2009W = 2010X = 2011Y = 2012Z = 2013AA = 2014AB = 2015AC = 2016AD = 2017AE = 2018AF = 2019

I recently inherited a clock from my wife’s deceased mother, so far I’ve be able to get it running consistently and it now chimes 1/4 & hours correctly. It appears that at some point it was laid back so the movement had shifted enough to cause issues. (Hopefully) I’ve resolved that now. I’m interested in finding out the date of it, it’s not likely that the movement’s been replaced but I really don’t know the history and my wife doesn’t remember when her late father purchased it. The #’s stamped on the movement are; UW32-319H-01. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks! Mark.

Hello, I own a Franz Hermle & Sohn model 131-081 clock, manufactured in 2000, letter “M” indication.

For inclusion on our home insurance, do you have any idea on the current value for the clock?

I would also be very interested in buying a manual or user instructions for the clock, if you know of where I can find/buy one?

Many thanks

Hello good sirs. I have a FHS clock that has a ink stamp on the back of the rear door reading 258W/8K. I believe this signifies that this is a model 258W clock and the 8K is some date code I imagine. Can anyone please help clarify this code for me? Thank you!

Hi James,
Hope you can give me some information on my Seth Thomas mantle clock.. It has a Seth Thomas wind up movement with a Westminster chime. The clock keeps perfect time. It will chime on the quarter, half, three quarter, and hour. It will chime on the hour, but will only strike the hours of 12, 2, 4, 6, 8, & 10. It will not strike the count of other hours. Need some help.
Thank you,
Steve

I have what I believe is a Hermle clock movement that was made for Mason & Sullivan clock kits. The number stamped on the back of the movement is 3339x. The movement was dated 1984 and is no longer working. I would like to replace the movement, but need to know which hermle movement is correct. I found two movement, 131-080 and 131-081 18cm. Which of the two movements will replace the 3339x movement. Would appreciate any information that you can provide
Thank you,
Steve.
