Hermle Mantel Clock

Hello. I am happy to have found your site. I am attaching some pictures of my mantle clock which is in need of some parts.

My parents purchased this clock a good while back and I received it after their death.
I am not sure if it still works. But, I am trying to find out if parts are available for it. It needs a new glass front and the key for winding it up.

All the information I could find on it follows:

Franz Hermle
Made in West Germany

If anyone can tell me a little about the clock, I sure would appreciate it. I know it has a beautiful chime. If the above listed parts are available, please let me know price etc.
Thanks for your inputs.

Looking for name
by: pauline

A friend of mine has recently found a clock identical to your clock. Can you tell me the name and date of the clock? The clock found, has no markings on it other than the makers name, Hermle.

8 day clocks

I have seen many key wind clocks go through Goodwill. Most if not all were wound tight and didnt run. I finally bought 2, a Hermle Mantel clock and a nice Howard Miller schoolhouse. Both are 3 hole 8 day, and were wound fully with no movement. I paid 5.00 and 15.00. I used some carborator cleaner and WD40 and let them sit over a couple nights. That was it!! both work perfectly. You can do the same! (but not by my house!!)

Nice Clock

I feel very fortunate to have found one here in Germany. Very cheap and I'm thrilled at the $300 value! I'm in the Army stationed in Heidelberg. I use German ebay to try to find parts. I'll do a search today and see what I can find.

Hope this helps

Finding a glass is not a problem but finding a bezel is.
I would get a #8 clock key and wind the clock first to see if it will run.

If you want to replace the movement.

The value of this clock in working condition is
maybe $300 if that is any help.
