Hermle 2214 Quartz Movement

by David
(United Kingdom)


I am currently trying to build myself a mantel clock.
I have managed to get hold of an Hermle 2214 movement some hands and a clock face. I plan to build the case to house it all myself.

However this particular movement has a pendulum attachment I assume this would be used in a wall clock.
Can I use this movement in a mantel clock and leave the pendulum in the transit position i.e. fixed so it cant move. Or would this cause damage to the movement.

I would appreciate any help or advice anyone can offer me on this.

Sorry if this is a stupid question. I am very new to clock building in fact this is the first time I have tried anything like this!!

I just decided i would like to give it a go.

Anyway any help anyone can offer me would be greatly appreciated.


Hi David,

Since this movement is a quartz movement, the pendulum can be attached, but it is not necessary to keep the clock running.

So you can go ahead and work without it.

Success and let us know how you are getting on.
Why not send us some pictures of your beautiful clock.
