Ordering a Hermle Clock Movement
To order a Hermle clock movement you need the numbers off of the back plate of the movement itself. Match the numbers up so the new movement will be exactly the same as the old one. Replacing the movement is a fraction of the price of a repair. It is also the fastest way to get the clock up and running again.

Matching the CM when ordering a Hermle Clock Movement
This note only applies if the current Hermle clock movement has a pendulum. Please match up the CM length from the back plate of the old unit to the new one. The options in the drop down menu ultimately indicate stock items that are available. However, if there is a CM number that is needed and is not listed, we can usually create it by changing some gears. If this is the situation please give us a call. There is an extra fee for regearing the movement. Usually this is an additional fee of $30 to $40.
Replacing a clock movement is less costly than an overhaul. The movement will last another 25 years before needing any work. Since it is still in production, and offered at a very reasonable price, it makes sense to replace the movement. The clock will be problem free right away, instead of months. Plus it will inevitably last longer than an even the best overhaul. There is no way you can get better than brand new. So please make the wise decision of replacing whenever possible.
Hermle Clock Movement Directory
Above all, the Hermle clock movement directory is to get to the correct page that contains the proper clock movement. Of course, this is an important first step when ordering a new clock movement. Thus, Hermle mechanical movements have numbers on the back plate starting with the below few numbers. Then a dash (-) follows and then some more numbers. For example: 340-020 131-070 1161-853 351-020 and so forth. So, if the clock says something like 1161-053 drop the second half and click the 1161 button below. Then this will bring up the page where you can find the 1161-053 movement. Also, this is where the rest of the 1161 series can be found.

If Not Listed
If the old Hermle clock movement is not found on these pages do not give up hope, we may still have a conversion available or we may be able to create it out of what exists. However, we need to know the movement number. So please email your movement number. Of course a picture of the back plate is also helpful. Moreover, if your movement numbers do not look like the Hermle movement numbers it may be made by someone else. Additionally, the mechanical movement identification page will assist you with determining who made the clock. In any event, this is for post WW2 modern mechanical clock movements made in Germany only. Whatever type of movement you have in your clock should be identifiable by the markings that are on the back plate.
