The 150-070 Hermle Clock Movement runs 8 days on a single wind. It replaces the 140-070 also, this is the same movement but used to be a 14 day wind up movement, now it will be an 8 day unit. It has strike hammer(s) that will strike out the hours a the top of the hour, and strike once for the half hour. The 150-070 Hermle Clock Movement has a 85 x 98mm outer plate measurement. They all take a #8 size .
Also replaces the 150-040 Movement
Because the 150-040 mechanical clock movement is now obsolete, this 150-070 can be used to replace it. To have a gong strike instead of a bell strike, just remove the bells and bend one hammer out to hit the gong.
Ordering a Hermle Clock Movement
To order a Hermle clock movement we 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.
Clock movement removal and installation
Removing and installing the clock movement requires the most basic tools. All of the Hermle clock movements are in stock and ship immediately. We are full time clock makers and retailers.
This means we can help from start to finish. If needing assistance in picking out the correct Hermle clock movement, installation or troubleshooting, we can help. Please do not hesitate to ask.
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 $100.
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 to restore better than a brand new movement. So please make the wise decision of replacing whenever possible.
If the Hermle clock movement is not found on these pages we may still have it as a conversion or we may be able to create it out of what exists. However, we need to know the movement number. So please email the movement number.
Of course a picture of the back plate is also helpful. Moreover, if the 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 with determining who made the clock. In any event, this is for post WW2 modern mechanical clock movements made in Germany only.
