Hermle grandfather clock

Hermle is one of the oldest and most prestigious manufacturers of clocks in the world. The company was founded in 1922 by Franz Hermle and is still a family business, with facilities in both Germany and the United States. Today, the company employs around 500 technicians and craftsmen and Hermle clocks are now exported to an estimated 100 countries around the world.

Hermle clocks have always been known for their precise mechanical clock movements.

Today the company is still an industry leader in computerized and automated parts as well as precision quartz movement. In addition to their grandfather clocks, the company offers a wide selection of desk and wall clocks; they also manufacture a barometer to the same high standards.

Most of the grandfather clocks in their range come in a traditional design; however, the company manufactures one striking modern floor clock. The contemporary grandfather clock has a “bullet-proof” glass front, with a light but solid beechwood frame, an elevated stainless steel dial, a chrome pendulum and a precision quartz movement which provides the company’s trademark accurate timekeeping. Not only is Hermle the largest manufacturer of clock mechanisms, they are also known for having the best replacement part inventory in the industry. You may never need to order a replacement part as their clocks and parts generally last at least 20 years, but if you do own an older model and need a part replaced, the company can ship it to you efficiently and quickly.

In addition to the precise clock mechanism, Hermle grandfather clocks feature other stylish features and decorative elements. Clocks are beautifully finished in one of several wood finishes, including oak, maple and cherrywood. Finishing touches include polished brass dials, locking cabinet doors, polished brass lyre pendulums and weight shells and decorative beveled glass.

Many Hermle clocks offer a choice of the three most popular chimes – Westminster, St. Michael or Whittington – and many of them also offer the convenience of an eight day key wind movement feature. And pleasant as the chimes are, you don’t want to be woken up by them – most Hermle grandfather clocks include an automatic night shut off feature, which silences the clock from 11pm to 7am.

The Hermle company motto is “Time never stops.” A fitting slogan for a company that has been manufacturing quality timepieces for almost a century, always embracing new technology but without giving up old fashioned values.
