Junghans – Live your style
Junghans has been giving a face to time for 160 years. The attention to detail, the high demands on design and quality and generations of technical expertise have characterised the products of Uhrenfabrik Junghans since it was founded in 1861. Values that form the foundations for the success story of the company from Schramberg in the Black Forest. In 1903 Junghans was the largest clock manufacturer in the world, with over 3,000 employees. The development of precision movements made the company the largest German manufacturer of chronometers in 1951 and the third largest worldwide in 1956. In the same year Junghans started the cooperation with the Swiss designer Max Bill – these Bauhaus classics are still produced to his designs in almost unaltered form today.
In 1972 Junghans was the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games in Munich, setting new standards in timekeeping. In 1990 Junghans set new standards with the invention of the first radio-controlled wristwatch. For 160 years now Junghans watches have combined watchmaking and design expertise on the wrist. Style made tangible.
