Have you seen Hermle's newest movement packing ?
I got this 9/11/2021 ordered it 8/9/2021 it was back ordered, That's OK.
I just wanted to show the new Packing & box.
This is the inside box that the movement sits in.
Im not going to say anything about the movement Quality.

It came direct from Hermle? Something does not seem right about that.

TEA, that’s how they are sending them out. I know what you mean about quality though! The pivots are sooooo sloppy! I was told that hermle were addressing this issue but nothing has changed!
I picked up an early Danish clock recently and that had a really early hermle 0451 1977 in excellent unused condition! The quality of this movement is much better - pivots nice and snug , no sloppiness at all!! To be honest I don’t know whatever happened to their movements. From new ,the play in the centre arbors is excessive just after 5-6 years! Their older movements were never that bad. I reckon that the new movements leave the factory without any lubrication.
I used to buy their movements 25 plus at a time to keep costs down but I’m now reluctant to buy anymore. I’ve just had too many issues with them and I feel that I shouldn’t have to repair new movements !
Hermle you need to get your act together!

I don't stock any Hermles any more either.
They have 'the look' of a company that's fading fast. Willie X

Fading fast is right.
Im sending back this movement piece of junk, Right out of The box the chime hammers would move back 1 1/2 inchs then the movement stops, & some other probs.
I get 3 or more new movement a month & this is the first time seeing the packing like this.

This movement was on back order so it came directly from Hermle.

NEW65 I just back a 451 cause it would not go in to beat no matter what I would do.
Im going to let them fix it.

Mark Butterworth said he has not seen packing like what I have here.

Thank you
