Clocks, Watches/Hermle / Perfut Mantel Clocks



I have come into possession of two mantel clocks. The first is a Hermle, which has the number 64 on top of the Made in Germany Stamp and the number 1050 - 020 below. On the back of the "door" it bears the number 1141/1. The other is a Perfut, with the number 24 above the Made in Germany stamp and the number 340 - 020 below. I see no other identification numbers or stamps. I need to give them to a local repair enthusiast, but would like to know more about these clocks, as they have come down through the family and I know absolutely nothing about mantel clocks. Any comments or advice would be most appreciated. Photos attached. Many thanks.

Movements for both were made by the Hermle Co.

the hyphenated numbers on the mechanisms are the Hermle part numbers for the mechanism itself

Perfut must have been a case maker who used Hermle movements

the 64 represents a year of manufacture of 1964

the 24 must be wrong - either stamped wrong or just hard to see the number right- might be 64 or 84,etc??
