Some clock builders requested a less expensive version of a mechanical movement, which would drive a long pendulum and had good quality Westminster chimes. This new Hermle movement offers these features and more. Its case incorporates the speaker and allows you to hang ornamental weight shells like those shown below. It has an extra-long handshaft and a heavy duty drive coil, which is able to swing the 34" (870 mm) LPB3 lyre pendulum(page 41).
