Authorised retailer for Junghans Watches. Junghans is one of the most well-respected and sought-after brands
in the horological industry. The brand was founded in Schramberg in
the Rottweil district of Germany. The brand remains very proud of its
German roots and every timepiece it creates is inspired by the
surroundings. The head office of Junghans is located near the Black
Forest, and an image of this landmark is included on some of the
models. The brand is heavily inspired by history and tradition and
continues to take inspiration from its past.
Junghans was founded in Germany in 1861 by Erhard Junghans. The
brand was an almost instant success and by 1903, they were the
largest clock manufacturer in the world. Junghans started by making
clocks but began manufacturing watches in 1927. Max Bill began
designing for the brand in the 1950s. His artistic background brought
a new aesthetic to Junghans watches. Junghans continue to use Max
Bill’s original designs and have a collection named after the artist.
Over time, the brand gathered more and more respect within the
industry and even served as the official timekeeper for the 1972
Summer Olympics in Munich.
Innovators in the Industry
Junghans watches are characterised by skilled craftsmanship and
meticulous attention to detail. The brand uses several of its own in-
house movements to ensure that each timepiece works just as it was
designed to. Additionally, each finished timepiece is subjected to an
intensive quality inspection to ensure for a harmonious combination of
aesthetics, precision, wear, comfort and durability. The brand was also
a driving force in the production of radio-controlled movements that
are used in many of its watches today.
Junghans in the Modern Day
Although Junghans takes a lot of inspiration from its past, this does
not stop it looking to the future. The brand aims to preserve tradition
and secure the future. The fascinating history of the Junghans brand
will continue to have influence on the design of the brand’s watches
