Can anyone tell me what the AS, BS, HS etc stands for? I cannot find any documentation regarding these letters.

Mark has posted about these suffix numbers several times. Some had to do with the second hand??

You could try doing three separate searches using the full model # with one of the suffix sets placed at the end. I don't think they are important but maybe in some cases??

Cousins U.K. says that “S” means with seconds function and “B” means high bridge (whatever that means). I believe there have been variants over the years that have the winding arbors in line horizontally or with the middle arbour offset. Is it possible to contact Hermle themselves for a definitive answer?

When Hermle list movements, they often put three dots at the end. I just looked through several books and there were no exceptions. No suffix letters. Willie X
