Hermle Astrolabium Quartz Mantel Clock - Made in Germany
The Astrolabium follows the Earth's rotation around the sun throughout the calendar year. This model features a zodiac ring and calendar.
Astrolabium in bronze with a mahogany or black finish is a highly accurate quartz regulated astronomical clock. It features a month and Zodiac disc alongside a sun, moon and earth ball. The dial is round with an exquisite laser cut center pattern. Through the visible, highly intricate gear train system, the clock reproduces the annual orbit of the earth around the sun, with the earth rotating on its own axis and the moon rotating every 29.5 days. In the course of the year the earth travels around all 12 Zodiac signs, months and individual days which are indicated on the brass dial. The crystal dome is hand blown and may therefore contain minor irregularities, which is characteristic for this kind of production.

CLOCKMAKER CRAFTSMANSHIP - RELIABLE AS CLOCKWORK
The clockmaker's precision craftsmanship: it's mythic, it's legendary - and it's common practice at each Hermle manufacturer. At Hermle, our company values and embraces unparalleled product quality, reliability, and customer service. All Hermle clocks, clock movements and turning parts share a common standard. Whether elaborate wall clocks, mechanical movements for a wide spectrum of industries, or any of our traditional models or styles. Decades of German craftsmanship, knowledge, and quality assurance are packaged into every treasure we produce. In addition to our Germany-based manufactory in Gosheim, Hermle clocks are also built in Amherst, Virginia. Nestled in the scenic foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia, Hermle Black Forest Clocks began manufacturing mechanical movements in the USA in 1977. This marked a new chapter of growth for the company as Hermle was able to utilize American and imported hardwoods to supply case goods for highly sought-after German quality mechanisms. The Amherst plant specializes in traditional hardwood floor, grandfather, wall, and mantel clock cases, with German movements and accessories. Some of the styles are based on early American tradition, and one is even a licensed Colonial Williamsburg reproduction.
Franz Hermle started his clock company in 1922 once Germany began recovering from World War I. His focus was on attention to detail and expert craftsmanship, which is still seen in the clocks they produce today. Exquisite wood selections, stains, paint, designs and movements are what make Hermle such a renown and quality brand.
By the 1930s, Hermle became world renown for their clock movement manufacturing, leveraging modern advancements in engineering that put them ahead of the competition who still used 19th century methods to manufacture their movements. This increased the efficiency and precision of making the clocks and resulted in a better overall product.
Hermle Clocks is known worldwide for their wide range of Grandfather clocks, Wall Clocks, Mantel Clocks and Regulator Clocks. With facilities in the United States and Germany, Hermle and their 500 employees keep a close eye on the quality of the items they produce.
For 100 years, Hermle has set the stage and standard for quality clock movements and timepieces. They continue to push forward and innovate with modern designs as well as uphold antique traditional styles. Hermle movements are found in a wide variety of other clock makers internals and they continue to offer a quality product unlike any other.
