Explore the World of Hermle Clocks



Hermle offers a diverse range of clocks to suit every taste and style, including:


Grandfather Clocks: Whilst some Hermle grandfather clocks feature traditional carvings and stylings, invoking a sense of nostalgia from a time long since passed, the majority of their grandfather clocks and longcase clocks are contemporary in design, symbolizing creativity and innovation. Included in this range of floor clocks is an exquisite Hand Polished Black Precision Floor Clock With Moon Dial that truly stands apart from the rest.


Wall Clocks: Available in various styles, from the traditional wall clock to modern wall clocks, there's a Hermle wall clock to complement any decor. Included in the range of wall clocks produced by Hermle are abstract wall clocks suitable for modern spaces with artistic flair, including a bicycle themed wall clock perfect for a cycling enthusiast.


Regulator Clocks: A regulator wall clock is defined as a weight driven clock regulated by a swinging pendulum. Regulator wall clocks are available in both striking and chiming weight driven models, as well as highly precise clocks that do not make a sound, and rather than winding a spring in the dial, the weights are wound similar to that of a grandfather clock. Hermle have produced a range of high quality regulator wall clocks for those who appreciate the finer things in life. 


Mantel Clocks: Designed for shelves or mantels, these smaller clocks add a touch of sophistication to any space. From the classic ‘Napoleon Hat’ Tambour style mantel clock, and traditional mantel clocks, to a wide range of modern table clocks that are truly exquisite in build and appearance, Hermle have produced a range of mantel clocks suitable for almost any space. A special feature item is their Multiple Time Zone World Clock, which doubles perfectly as an efficient tool to keep in touch with your loved ones living around the world, whilst allowing you to manage international schedules flawlessly. 


Specialty Clocks: Hermle also produces a range of specialty clocks that offer unique features, including the range of Telluriums and Astrolabiums which represent an elegant blend of timekeeping and science. The name Tellurium is derived from the latin word ‘tellus’ which translates to ‘Earth’, and rightly so, as these highly accurate clocks feature intricate designs that showcase the choreography of the Earth, Sun and Moon's rotation in the Solar System in real time. In medieval times, an astrolabe was an instrument used to determine the altitude of the Sun or other celestial bodies. Hermle also produces a range of high quality Ship’s Bell Nautical Clocks, designed with precision in mind.
