Junghans Meister Driver Hand Wind: A Watch with Motoring Heritage

The Junghans Meister Driver Hand Wind Watch is a must-have for all classic car aficionados. German brand Junghans is intrinsically linked to automative history. Arthur Junghans was passionate about motoring. In 1892 he bought one of the first Daimler test cars, delivered to him by Wilhelm Maybach in person. A close friendship developed between Arthur Junghans, Wilhelm Maybach and Gottlieb Daimler. All three were technically minded. Also, they were all from the same region of South West Germany. Consequently, Junghans, Mayback and Daimler would meet to generate ideas. In turn, these ideas produced significant inventions such as worm gear steering and the idea for electrical ignition.

In 1905, Arthur Junghans’ son Oskar set a milestone in the field of car clocks. As predecessors to the modern tachometer, car clocks enabled speed to be determined by measuring the time taken to travel known distances (in addition to telling the time). Oskar based the measuring method on measuring the rotation speed of the wheel of an automobile with the turns of a gear wheel.

Meister Driver Hand Wind Watch

Today, Junghans pays homage to the excitement and adventure of the early days of the motoring era with the Jungans Meister Driver Hand Wind Watch. The look is reminiscent of a classic car. However, it utilises all the technological know-how of this uncompromising watchmaking brand.

Classic Car Detailing

Firstly, housed within a 37.7mm stainless steel case is a J815.1 hand wound movement with impressive 42 hour power reserve.

Secondly, the convex, hard plexiglass is coated with Sicralan to enhance scratch resistance. Additionally, the two tone sand and grey lacquered dial lacquered dial resembles a speedometer with its large, sand-coloured minute markers. Furthermore, the outer minute track is in white. This gives the watch a vintage feel. Also, the steel hands are coated with an environmentally friendly luminous substance to ensure maximum legibility in poor light.

Finally, the Meister Driver Hand Wind Watch is completed with an elegant sand calf leather strap to complement the dial. Furthermore, the underside of the strap is perforated, a detail taken from the interior of a classic car.
