• Since 1967 the developers at Junghans have been working on a quartz wristwatch, they tinker in search of solutions, as time is of the essence. Competitors are also working towards the same goal. And Junghans is in the lead once again.

    In 1970 the time is ripe for a sensation, the presentation of a pre-production series of the first German quartz wristwatch. With the Astro-Quartz Junghans once again writes a new chapter in watchmaking history. Thanks to its complex technology, the watch gets launched with a price tag of around 800 marks. In 1972 the W666.02 calibre enters series production.
