The History

Junghans is a name to be reckoned with. In 1861, German businessman Mr Erhard Junghans bought an oil mill in Schramberg in the Black Forest, powered by the rapids of the Schiltach river. Finding he had power left over, he had an idea: to produce clock parts and, in due course, whole movements. Today, Junghans is booming, with most of its extraordinarily well-priced output powered by mechanical movements. Now a younger generation of design-savvy urbanites has fallen for its minimalist, Bauhaus-style Max Bill range, as well as the retro classic Meister Driver. After 157 years, Junghans remains at the vanguard of watchmaking – a position it seemingly has no intention of vacating.

INNOVATIONS

Atomic Smitten

In 1985, Junghans produced the first radio-controlled clock, co-ordinated with Germany’s atomic clock. By 1990, the technology had been worked into the world’s first radio-controlled wristwatch; a similar system is still used in Junghan’s Mega pieces.

Dial It Up

Junghans boasts its own in-house dial printing plant – a highly specialised process usually undertaken by third parties. It’s here in the Schramberg workshops that the date rings of the Max Bill range receive their characteristic typography.

Right On Time

The most significant result of Junghans’ war effort was a collaboration with Glashütte’s biggest movement maker, UROFA, and PUW, nearby in Pforzheim. Their J82 chronometer never saw military action, but went into production post-war, to huge acclaim.
