That is Hermle

At home in the Swabian Alps– known throughout the world

Hermle DREHTEILE UND UHREN GmbH Co. KG is a medium-sized family business based in southwestern Germany. The company was founded here – in the region Germany's inventors and tinkerers call home. Hermle is internationally renowned for its quality and precision in the areas of clocks, clockworks and turned parts and it is based in Reichenbach am Heuberg.


Years of Tradition



120 ( + USA)



One company – three strong divisions

Founded in the early 1920s, the company was already considered one of the world's most cutting-edge clock production facilities by 1930. High precision and quality standards led to an expansion of its business units. As a result, Hermle has been known for decades for its three strong divisions: Clocks, clockworks and turned parts. Customer focus, solution-oriented thinking and optimal production methods are top priorities.


Individual solutions –
or: everything that can be solved using gear teeth

Especially in the field of turned parts, Hermle is known for creative, individual solutions. Typical examples: a customer has a manufacturing problem with a certain part. Or he needs a new part, but does not know whether and how to manufacture it most efficiently. Another customer has previously purchased his parts from us and processed them further. Suddenly there are technical changes, e.g. because of changes in the product range. A third customer has to have the turned parts he has purchased from us reworked in additional work steps and would like to reduce these additional costs.

We discuss all these issues in detail and together we look for the optimum solution. This can be just a small change, or a completely new procedure in the manufacturing process. Of course, every suggestion is thoroughly checked before the manufacturing process is adapted.





SerienproduktionSeries production

Quality, reliability, solution awareness

Values that matter to us

Quality does not just happen by itself. Instead, it is the result of a demanding, authentic corporate culture. Hermle has exemplified this culture from the day it was founded. That includes innovative solutions, a high production depth, reliability, adhering to schedules and, if necessary, a healthy dose of pragmatism.

We stand for environmental awareness, happy employees and treating our customers and suppliers fairly. And: Hermle continues to be 100% "Made in Germany".

The company has been known for decades for its high quality and precision in the areas of clocks, clockworks and turned parts. At its Reichenbach/Heuberg facilities, Hermle manufactures many turned parts, such as gears and pinions. Furthermore, the company is a long-established and sought-after partner for a wide range of industries, particularly when it comes to small and miniature parts.

The traditional clock-making craft originated in the Swabian Alb (Alps) and the adjacent Black Forest. The highly developed and globally renowned clock industry, which also includes Hermle, evolved from it. The company is one of the last remaining clock manufacturers that makes traditional and modern clocks for residential spaces. All clock components are "Made in Germany" and are largely produced at the Hermle facility in Reichenbach am Heuberg.

King Charles III receives a Hermle clock during his state visit

The German Foreign Office contacted the family business from Reichenbach am Heuberg

King Charles III and royal wife Camilla were on a state visit to Germany from March 29-31, 2023. Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his wife Elke Büdenbender received the couple. During the three-day visit and various appointments, the Federal President presented a gift to King Charles III at Bellvue Palace, where he received a classic English table clock in a high-quality wooden case with walnut finish and an 8-day 4/4 Westminster striking movement with automatic night shut-off from Hermle DREHTEILE UND UHREN GmbH & CO. KG from Reichenbach am Heuberg. The Foreign Office contacted the house of Hermle explicitly with this model and expressed the special wish to have a special engraving on the clock in German: His Majesty King Charles III of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland 1st State Visit to the Federal Republic of Germany from March 29 to 31, 2023. This was no doubt not an everyday request.
