The Hermle 132-071 clock movement runs 8 days on a single wind. It has two hammers on the back with one included bell that will play the ships bell strike sequence.

This brand new Hermle clock movement is straight from the factory in Germany. The movement comes with the improved balance wheel for ease of fine timing.

Removal of this movement is easy and we provide instructions for the installation. This movement is in stock and can ship today. We are full time clock makers and retailers both, so if you need any assistance with install we can help.

Replacing a movement is less costly than a overhaul. These movements last 25 years before needing an over haul, but since its still being made at a fair price it is so much better just to replace. The clock will be problem free right away instead of months, last longer than a overhaul and its prelubricated.

Selecting the movement

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.

The 132-071 is now improved with a Swiss platform escapement. The quality of this escapement is much improved from the past and easier to time.

We also offer the movement with the dial and the hands, to use this unit on the Schatz Royal Mariner movement that is no longer in production. The Schatz unit is not available and this unit is very close, however the winding arbors are in different places, so this is why the new dial. The hands will need to be changed also for this conversion.

How to identify a Hermle clock movement

On the back plate of the clock movement you will see the numbers such as 451-050 94cm. These numbers let us know everything we need to know about the mechanical clock movement itself. This tells us if the clock is weight driven or spring driven, if it has a pendulum, the size of the movement and the length of the hand shaft and much more. To match up the numbers to the new movement numbers is to get the exact same movement you have now but brand new. Since the new movement will be the exact same and not some knock off imitation, all of your existing clock components will usually fit just the same as the old unit.

With age, the mechanical clock movements oil solidifies and becomes black and sticky. By the time 20 or 30 years go by, the oil has solidified and is creating wear on the movements brass plates.

If you look at your old clock movement, you will see holes in the brass plates where there are small pivot arbors sticking into these holes. These pivots are what the gears of the clock ride upon and as the pivots spin in the solidified oil, this makes the holes oblong instead of round. With the pivot holes oblong, the holes are pinching the pivots and creating resistance in the gear train. With the solidified oil and the pinched pivots, the clock will eventually stop working or chiming.

Other Names Used

There are a variety of other names that can be on the movement even though it is produced by the Hermle company.

  • S. Larose
  • Mason & Sullivan

  • 1161-850 94cm
  • 241-070 94cm

When you have the numbers off of the back plate of the Hermle mechanical clock movement, you only need to match it up and order right on this website. The movement numbers are everything, if we provide a picture for that number and it does not look identical, it is still the correct movement as long as the numbers match up.

To get to the page that the numbers can be matched, the first thing to do is to match the movements number's prefix. The numbers prefix is the first set of numbers in the set, such as if the movement's numbers are 1161-853 114cm, the prefix would be 1161. You would go to the list of movements prefix's below and click on the 1161 to see all the movements in that number series, such as 1161-050 or 1161-853 or 1161-850.

To order a new clock movement means having your clock up and running in the shortest amount of time and have it cost less than an overhaul of the old unit.

The new clock movements will ship the same day as you order it, usually from Huntington, MA via UPS. The new movement will of course last a lot longer than any repair that can be done on the old unit. When the repair is done it is still going to be an old movement and in no way can it out last a new one.

With this new unit, your up and running in days instead of months, the cost is usually less than a cleaning, and it will last much much longer before you have to think about having your clock serviced again.

Hermle date codes, what year it was made

Mechanical Clock Movement Identification by Clockworks.com
Early movements prior to 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 1987 is only marked with the letter A instead, and 1988 is the letter B.
A = 1987 B = 1988 C = 1989 D = 1990 E = 1991 F = 1992 G = 1993 H = 1994 G = 1995 H = 1996 I = 1997
J = 1998 K = 1999 L = 2000 M = 2001 N = 2002 O = 2003 P = 2004 Q = 2005 R = 2006 S = 2007 T = 2008
U = 2009 V = 2010 W = 2011 x = 2012 y = 2013 Z = 2014 AA = 2015 BB = 2016 CC = 2017 DD = 2018 EE = 2019

132-071 Installation Instructions

The following instructions are to install a new 132-071 clock movement. Read More »

1. Remove the hands. To remove the minute hand, hold it still while using needle nose pliers on its nut just to loosen it. Turning the nut to the left a little bit will loosen it so you can just take the nut off with your fingers. When the minute hand nut is off, you can remove the minute hand. This is only on by the minute hand mounting square hole on the movement’s square shaft. When the nut is removed it will come off if you wiggle the hand around. Now for the hour hand, this is on only by a friction fit, it has a round hole in the hour hand and presses on to a round shaft. This comes off by twisting back and forth and pulling toward you at the same time. Although you may not be able to tell, the hour hand tube is tapered wider as it goes into the movement. This means the more the hour hand is pressed down onto this post, the tighter it will be and harder to come off.

2. Take the mounting screws out. This will require a small flat head screwdriver, there are usually four screws at the 12 - 3 - 6 and 9 o’clock positions to remove. Sometimes there are also screws on the back of the clock case as well to remove so the entire movement with the dial comes out the front. So there is a couple of different ways that this may be mounted into its metal clock case but it will be either both or one of these mounting methods.

3. Taking off the clock dial. The dial is usually attached to a metal plate, this metal plate has usually three or four posts that go into the clock movement. The dial comes off of the metal plate with three or four small flat screws. The metal plate that the dial is attached to comes off by releasing the posts that go into the movement. The posts that go into the movement will come off by one of these two ways, the post may have a tapered pin, this means a pin that is fat on one side and skinny on the other. The skinny side will be stuck into a hole drilled into the post. To take this out you only need to yank out the pin by grabbing the fat end with some needle nose pliers and yank on it. Other times there will be a locking collar with a set screw to loosen and the collar comes off. With the posts released from the movement, the dial will come straight forward and off of the movement.

4. Installing the new movement. Installation is the reverse of the removal. There is nothing usually added to the installation. Put the metal plate with the posts back on the clock movement with its tapered pins or set screws. Install the movement with its metal dial plate into the round metal clock case and reattach. Install the clock dial back on to its metal holding plate. Put the hour hand on the clock as a friction fit and then the minute hand with its nut.

5. Set the chime with time. After the new movement is installed, you will notice the clock will chime 5 minutes before the hour or after the hour, or 8 minutes, or whatever. The idea being that it won’t chime when it’s supposed to.

This fix is very easy but some people have a hard time believing it is as easy as described. Please read this text carefully. Take the minute hand off of the clock, this is the longer of the two hands. With this minute hand off of the clock, turn it upside down and you will see it has a square hole where it attaches to the clock. This square hole is in a bushing that will rotate WITHIN the minute hand itself. So just use needle nose pliers to turn this bushing so the square in the bushing will rotate. Then put the hand back on the clock and see if it’s pointing to the correct place where it chimed. Then set to time.
