H3T
Hermle 8-day Triple Chime Chain Drive
: Like all of our grandfather movements, this popular 8-day, chain-driven movement has a one second beat (3600 per hour), sometimes referred to as the Royal Beat. The deep-toned Westminster, Whittington and St. Michael's chimes are played on 8 tuned rods and 4 rods simultaneously strike out the hour. The movement also features a second hand just below 12 o'clock, and a convenient lever at 3 o'clock permits chime selection and silencing. An anchor automatic escapement provides easy pendulum beat regulation, a feature you'll also ?nd on all of our grand-father movements. The standard pendulum rod is wood with a 6-1/2" (165 mm) diameter disc. The plate size is 7.87" (200 mm) wide x 5.5" (140 mm) high. Hands, chime rods, weight shells, weight ?llings and mounting accessories are included.When night shut off feature is activated, the movement will not chime between 10 pm and 7 am.

This movement is the same plate size as the H3T, but requires less depth, since there are only 4 rods playing out the Westminster chime, mounted behind the movement, and 4 rods for the strike.

Also an 8-day movement, but with a cable drive feature to facilitate winding. The movement comes complete with hands, chime rods, weight shells, weight ?llings, mounting accessories and standard pendulum.
