With a rich history dating back to the twenties and continuing today with a tradition of excellence and quality craftsmanship, Hermle remains the preferred-most-choice as manufacturer of clocks, movements and clock components using the core traditions and combining them with the contemporary manufacturing techniques.
While most of the American clock companies mark their roots to the early 1800’s, the Hermle Company is a unique success story from the twentieth century. The company was established in 1922, shortly after Germany started recovering from the World War I, as the Franz Hermle Clock Company in the town of Gosheim near the Wuerttemberg, Germany.
Amazingly, this was the time when the global economy was dropping badly and American clock companies were struggling for their existence, the new German company flourished. By the early 1930’s, the Hermle clock company was a pioneer in the production of quality clock movements. While the competitor clock companies were using traditional, nineteenth century methods, Franz Hermle had an eye for competence and used the latest, highly advanced techniques for manufacturing the clock movements.
Hermle is a leading manufacturer that sells directly to the wholesale industry and operates in over 80 countries with offices in Germany and, as Hermle Black Forest Clocks, in the United States. Besides a pioneer in the manufacture of movements and clocks, Franz Hermle and Sohn is a foremost supplier of pendulums and clock dials. The company also manufactures decorative weight shells for the modern weight-driven clocks, mainly for the grandfather clocks.

In 1777, Frederic Japy started the world’s first large-scale clock manufacturing company in the Montbeliard area of France. Several more companies were established in the region in due course, in imitation of the renowned industry leader.
One of them was the L’Epee factory that in 1839 started manufacturing escapements, movements and clocks. The company also manufactured musical boxes that later found their way into the best collections in private homes and museums throughout the world.

Then, as now, L’Epee clocks can easily be found in most of the countries worldwide. L’Epee illustrated “the Giant Regulator”, i.e. the largest clock in the world, thus getting it a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
This unusual creation weighs 1.2 tons and measures 2.20 m tall. The mechanical movement of the clock alone weighs 120 kg. This contemporary masterpiece needed more than 2,800 hours of work and was revealed at the Louvre in Paris, before touring the Middle East, Europe and the US.
In 1999 L’Epee was acquired by the London based clockmaker, F.A. Gluck, who turned around and sold the company to Swiza, Switzerland’s largest manufacturer of alarm and miniature clocks, moving the manufacturer of L’Epee clocks to Switzerland; thus starting a new chapter in the L’Epee history.
