Junghans – Live your style
Junghans has been giving a face to time for over 150 years. The attention to detail, the high demands on design and quality and generations of technical expertise have characterized the products of Uhrenfabrik Junghans since it was founded in 1861. Values that form the foundations for the success story of the com-pany from Schramberg in the Black Forest. In 1903 Junghans was the largest clock manufacturer in the world, with over 3,000 employees. The development of precision movements made the company the largest German manufacturer of chronometers in 1951 and the third largest worldwide in 1956. In 1972 Junghans was the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games in Munich, setting new standards in timekeeping. After an eventful and turbulent company history, the Schramberg businessmen Dr. Hans-Jochem and Hannes Steim became the new proprietors of the venerable company in 2009, ushering in a new era of growth. Junghans still produces all of its watches on the historical company site. In 2018 the terrace building has been revived for its 100th birthday. In this monument to industrial architecture, long the light-flooded centerpiece of Junghans watch production, the tradition of watch and clockmaking in the Black Forest can be experienced in the form of a museum. The current collection also references the long tradition of the company in design and watchmaking – transported to the present in contemporary form. For example, with the Meister watches, which have been manufactured since the 1930s, or the timepieces of Max Bill. These Bauhaus classics were first created in 1956 in collaboration with the Swiss designer – and are still produced to his designs in almost unaltered form today. In 1990 Junghans set new standards with the invention of the first radio-controlled wristwatch – a technology that is making its mark once again in 2018 with a new generation of intelligent, Schramberg-made radio-controlled movements of great precision and accuracy. The clear design language of the Junghans watches is a constant factor throughout the history of the company. The latest indication of this can be found in the stylish models of the FORM family, with their reduced simplicity. For over 150 years now Junghans watches have combined watchmaking and design expertise on the wrist. Style made tangible.
