About Junghans

 

Junghans watches have a long history and a great tradition, in which watchmaking and art harmonise wonderfully on the wrist. The expertise and years of experience of our designers have succeeded in giving time its own face - and many people the feeling of always being impeccably turned out with a Junghans watch. Our watches are consciously understated, preferring to underscore the personality and attitude of the wearer. Because true style is never loud, it deliberately favours the more restrained approach. It is from this philosophy that many of our classic watches have arisen. Maybe this is also why a Junghans watch is one of the most stylish compliments you can pay yourself - and your wrist.

 
 

To make watchmaking history you need to be ahead of your time.

 

Schramberg, 1861

 

Creative inventors brought greatness to south-western Germany and the precision engineering industry of the Black Forest. Innovative ideas also brought technological changes to traditional watchmaking. This gave rise to companies that still set international standards to this day. In the 19th century they were already exporting their products throughout the world. One such company was Junghans. Founded in 1861 by Erhard Junghans, the company grew rapidly and was soon making history not only in the fields of clock and watchmaking, but also of industry and architecture. By 1903 Junghans was the largest clock manufacturer in the world. In 1961, the year of the company’s centenary, 20,000 clocks and watches of all kinds were produced each day by 6,000 employees, using 10,000 machines, with the output exported to 100 countries. However, we did not merely wish to manufacture timepieces, we wanted to shape time itself. And we continue to do so, with undiminished enthusiasm.
