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
Beginning in the 1950s, famous designer Max Bill created clocks and watches for Junghans. An example of his work is a wall clock designed in 1956 that is in the collection of The New York Museum of Modern Art . Bill also created aesthetic designed, precision mechanical wristwatches for Junghans.
In the late 1980s, Junghans introduced the first radio-controlled table clock on the world market.
In 1990, the first radio-controlled wristwatch followed, called the MEGA 1.In
1995 Junghans presented the ultimate combination of the solar powered watch with ceramic housing and solar-powered technology. Currently, Junghans, in partnership with Seiko, is developing a watch which will automatically set the local time in what ever respective time zone a wearer i. Say, you board a plane in NY (US EASTERN TIME) and fly to California (WESTERN US TIME) your watch will reset itself automatically. Say you board a plane in cali for China, your watch will reset itself in each zone.
