Junghans Watches are the epitome of understated style. Furthermore, they represent over 150 years of precision engineering and horological expertise.

Located in the Black Forest area of Schramberg, Germany, the Junghans factory is a historical, listed building. Built on the side of a mountain, the factory is staggered so that it physically hugs the mountainside. Also, the terrace design allows light to flood in, illuminating the workshops.

Junghans: Brand History

The company was founded by Erhard Junghans in 1861. Initially, a manufacturer of clock components, it grew rapidly. So much so, that by 1903, Junghans was the world’s largest watch factory.

Junghans has had many milestones in its history. Firstly, they were the first German company to produce a quartz watch movement with an in-direct central second. This movement lays at the heart of the iconic Meister collection. Secondly, in the 1950’s, the brand developed and produced the first 19 jewelled, hand-wound chronograph movement with stop-watch function. Furthermore, this innovative movement was set inside a pilot watch, the style of which is still used as an industry standard today.

High design and inspiration for the collection have long gone hand in hand. In the 1950’s, Max Bill (artist, product designer, architect and student at the famous Bauhaus art school) was commissioned to design a wristwatch and clock for the brand. Today, the style of this landmark collaboration is still evident. The purist Max Bill and Max Bill Mega watch designs have remained true to Bill’s original design.

Finally, Junghans are also pioneers in the use of radio-technology in watches. In 1992, they produced the first prototype for a solar-powered watch that always shows the correct time via radio signal. By 1995, the antenna was integrated into a ceramic case and the Mega Solar Ceramic was born.
