That's what I was thinking. It looks practically brand new. Not even dusty inside. We just bought it at an antique shop today. I figured (woth as new as it looked) it wasn't that old at all, but then saw where it says it was made in West Germany, and it kind of got me there. Lol.These type clocks were often given as gifts, rewards, etc, back in the day when most people liked clocks. Most of these had a 340-020 chime movements.
Your clock looks like it was unused for most of its life? Willie X
I wasn't sure of the make as Hamilton was the only name on it anywhere. I looked up Hermle Hamilton Clocks and saw they were clearly marked as Hermle. This one just says Hamilton. Can you provide any other information about it and what the numbers and letters identify it as?Hermle is the make and Hamilton is the retailer. The letter A can be used to date the clock to the year. 1988.
That's pretty cool. Lol. That's my parents anniversary year. What about the numbers? What are they used for? (Obviously, I have 0 experience with clock stuff. Lol.)Hamilton stamped their name on the movement made by Hermle. Yours is 1988 - they changed the numerical year to alphabetical in 1988 which explains the A on yours. Before, they were dated by year such as 87 as 1987.
