JUNGHANS WAS CREATED IN 1861 BY:

Erhard Junghans in Schramberg, Baden-Württemberg.

JUNGHANS became the worlds largest makers of clocks.

In 1875 Erhard Junghans' son, Arthur, took over the company with a focus on innovation yielding no less than 300 inventions patented under his management.

JUNGHANS  began to produce wristwatches in 1927.

JUNGHANS made the  BoUk-1 Fl. 23885 aircraft clocks for German aircraft in WWII.

JUNGHANS made large wrist type chronographs that were worn on the leg of the pilot.

JUNGHANS developed the legendary J88 wristwatch chronograph movement as early as 1946.


IMG_3576.JPG (102458 bytes)

INTRODUCED 4 YEARS AFTER JUNGHANS BEGAN PRODUCING THEIR FIRST WRIST WATCHES, THIS 1931-1935 15 JEWEL BEAUTY,WITH  RAISED ILLUMINATED NUMERALS  AND REFLECTIVE SILVER RINGED DIAL & SUB-SECONDS CHAPTER RING,   WITH STEEL MILITARY HANDS AND A RATHER LARGE [FOR ITS TIME AND STYLE]    DOUBLE HINGED CASE WITH WIRE LUGS IS ONE OF JUNGHANS EARLIEST WRIST WATCHES. THE COST OF THIS JUNGHANS WOULD HAVE MADE IT AVAILABLE ONLY TO THOSE IN THE UPPER PAY SCALE.

IMG_3575.JPG (104184 bytes)

BUT MORE THAN THIS, THE FACT THAT THE CASE WAS MADE AS IT IS, A STYLE THAT IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS THE TRENCH WATCH, AND WAS MADE WITH A RUGGED FINISH RATHER THAN A DRESS LOOK, HAS A DOUBLE CASE THAT IS HINGED FOR QUICK AND EASY MOVEMENT REMOVAL, WAS ILLUMINATED, AND IS STAMPED WITH THE ARROW THROUGH KJ , MAKES IT, IN OUR OPINION, AN OFFICERS OR NON-COM OFFICERS WRIST WATCH.
