The current collections of the German brand Junghans

  • Junghans Meister Pilot
    The collection is based on the watches that Junghans produced since the 1930s. In 1955, the company presented the legendary Bundeswehr chronograph, specifically based on the Meister Pilot and made for the army of Germany. With distinctive luminescent numerals and hands, the models offer a good readability, the ergonomic bezel ensures an optimum in grip.

  • Junghans Meister
    When technology and design are combined in a characterful way and on top the fascination and design are retained over decades, Junghans is awarding the title “Meister”. Watches from the collection are inspired by the heyday of the 1950s and 1960s, they pay homage to the technical achievements of these years.

  • Junghans Meister Mega
    A bit more precise, a bit more stylish - this is how Junghans describes the collection. Traditional watch design with modern accents, simple elegance paired with innovative technology. Because in the Meister Mega a new developed, high-precision radio controlled movement is doing it ́s work. It is connected to the most accurate clock in the world.

  • Junghans Meister Driver
    The fascination for cars was shared by Arthur Junghans and his sons as well as the passion for watches. One thing led to the other, over time, numerous car timepieces where developed and patented. The Meister Driver models are based on the tradition of automotive instrument panels and revive their historical role models.

  • Junghans Max Bill
    It is a series of mechanical wristwatches designed by the Swiss architect Max Bill for Junghans in 1961. It is still produced almost unchanged today. A puristic dial, clear, rounded numerals and the curved glass convey the charm of the 1960s. The discreet design does not distract from the essential - namely the time display. The balance between utility and beauty could hardly be more balanced.

  • Junghans Max Bill Mega
    At his time precision was indispensable to Max Bill. It is logical the series he designed also features incorruptible radio technology. Only the bottom of the watch has been modified, found here are now a world map and reception display. Otherwise, the models in the collection are pure and puristic - as they had been in 1961.

  • Junghans Form
    With this collection Junghans draws the ideal watch form. A modern, sleek design meets the trend-setting convex shape of the case, making the models even slimmer. This circumstance is due to the extremely high wearing comfort. At the same time, the concave dial creates an impressive three-dimensionality; viewed from the front, the watch looks much deeper than it actually is. Successful design language!

  • Junghans Funk & Solar
    Striving for the most accurate timepiece in the world, the company introduced the radio technology back in 1985. With a deviation of about one second in one million years, there was potential to exploit it. So followed the miniaturization, until the technology found its place in a wristwatch. With their solar watches Junghans succeeded another world sensation. As powered by solar energy, the winding of the movement became unnecessary. Instead, more space has been created for the radio technology. Highest precision and absolute reliability - the advantages are obvious.

The long story The mark from the Black Forest

It is April 14, 1861, when Erhard Junghans, together with his brother-in-law, founded a company to manufacture clock components in the town of Schramberg in the area of the Black Forest, Germany. The production of watches as a whole was, for the young company "Zeller & Junghans" at this time, just wishful thinking. Initially components such as wooden cases, pointer, hinges or pendulum discs where produced. It was not until 1866, after the departure of the brother-in-law Jakob Zeller-Tobler, that Erhard Junghans presented his first own wall clock. Only four years later, in 1870, the founder died. For six years, his wife managed the company, until in 1876 the sons Arthur and Erhard Junghans jr. took over the company. They developed the legendary alarm clock caliber No. 10, which was the cornerstone for the subsequent upswing of the brand. It was built almost unchanged until the 1930s. Through various mergers and acquisitions, the company grew very fast, in 1903 Junghans was even considered the world's largest watch company. With nine production sites, branches in Paris and Venice, around 3,000 employees and three million watches produced each year, the company made a name for itself in the industry.

In order to create the best possible conditions for all workplaces, Arthur Junghans planned the “Terrassenbau” which is considered a landmark today. The project was completed in 1918, and the iconic terrace climbs the slope in nine steps, providing day lighting at all workstations. In 1936, Junghans presented the first inhouse developed and build wristwatch. The model J80 / 2, driven by the caliber J80, is regarded as the prelude to the "Meister" watches. Junghans watches with the title "Meister" showcase high quality workmanship as well as the highest precision. They stem of the drawing desk of Anton Ziegler. The watchmaker's creations shaped the design language of the Junghans watches over several decades, because Ziegler knew: "Only if the elements of the dial elements get along with each other, an appealing watch is created."
With the steady development of increasingly precise movements, chronometers have become more important. As early as 1956 Junghans was the third largest chronometer manufacturer in the world. A year later, Junghans launched the first automatic chronometer caliber J83, which was a success for the company: It is still one of the most beautiful ever built chronometer movements from Germany. It is incredibly popular with collectors. In 1961 Junghans presented a series of wristwatches whose design can still be found today in the "Max Bill by Junghans" line. Max Bill was a Swiss architect and artist; besides Ziegler, it where these watches that decisively influenced the appearance of the Junghans brand.

In 1971, the company reoriented and shifted over to the "King Quartz". The quartz crisis was no longer deniable anyway, so they decided to get on the train and produced the first German quartz wristwatches. With this, but also with radio controlled and solar powered movements, Junghans stayed successful. At the turn of the millennium, the company ran into financial difficulties and was sold to the Egana-Goldpfeil-Group. The holding had already invested in various other luxury goods manufacturers and was based in Hong Kong. With the economic crisis in 2008, the holding went bankrupt. Shortly before the final end of the german brand it was recognized by Dr. Hans-Jochen Steim and his son Hannes from Schramberg. Without further ado the potential of the traditional brand was taken over by the two. They successfully put the company Junghans back on the right course. In 2011 the 150th anniversary was duly celebrated with a limited special edition of the Meister Chronometer. The model was reminiscent to the successful 1950s and also introduced a new trend at Junghans: On the product side, the return to tradition and identity as a german brand moved more and more into the focus. In addition to classic, mechanical timepieces, the brand's product range today also includes quartz radio and solar watches. Every year, about 50,000 wristwatches are produced by the brand - mostly in Schramberg, Germany.

Philosophy of the company

Following the motto "living style", Junghans gave itself the task of combining watchmaking and art in the most beautiful way on the wrist. Thanks to the competence in design and the many years of experience of the designers at Junghans, the watches of the brand convey the pleasant feeling of always being well dressed when wearing one of their timepieces. With full awareness, the models are held discreetly to underline the personality of the wearer, not to cover it up. Silent sounds, but confident - this is how the German company presents itself.
