Herschede 217 hall clock
I own a Herschede 217, it is one of the finest clock companies in the world. I take great pride in owning a Herschede, they truly are the Cadillac's of clocks.
Just remember when you have this particular kind of clock that it will be more money on fixing them,they very seldom stop running, I have one that is 40 years old and just now seams to be in need of a overhaul.
It will cost 800.00 to rebuild the movement and that is on the cheap side . I had one person want 1400.00 to do the same work without ultrasonic cleaning it.
Make sure it you decide to own a Herschede you take that into account on the price it would be to fix them. They are a heirloom that you will treasure for a life time, they are the best of the best.
There are know short cut at Herschede, they are all hand made to last , and they are the best Grandfather clocks in the world.
