• The 1972 Olympic Games. The eyes of the world are on Munich - and Junghans. As the official timekeeper of the games, Junghans sets new standards in time measurement. The electronically-connected starting blocks, start control units and light barriers enable both starts and finishes to be registered, monitored and documented accurately.
    With this development the precise time measurement of sporting performances acquire an objective, incontestable value. Records become clearly measurable. In combination with the world's first colour finish line photos accurate to one hundredth of a second, Junghans makes a name for itself as a timekeeper for sporting competitions.
