It was 1922 in the small town of Gosheim, nestled in the Black Forest region of Germany when founder Franz Hermle began to make his clocks. Within a decade the Franz Hermle Clock Company gained worldwide recognition as a leader in the efficient manufacturing of clock movements. In 1953, the operation was passed on to Franz’s four sons who continued to build the business into the world’s leading of manufacturer of mechanical clock movements. And since then, they have been masters in hand crafting clockwork mechanisms. In 1977 Hermle opened an additional plant in Amherst, Virginia, U.S.A, to serve the North American market. The tradition as a family owned and operated business carries on at Hermle, now in its third generation.
High accuracy and perfect precision of every single component is why Hermle clock movements are considered to be among the world’s very best. The enduring quality and performance of every Hermle clock is backed by a full 3-year in-house guarantee, the longest warranty in the industry. It’s no wonder why Hermle exports clocks, movements, and clock accessories to more than 80 countries worldwide.
