It’s crazy how fast time flies! This year, we’re celebrating the 160th anniversary of the recognised Junghans brand. The watches produced by this German manufacturer stand out on the market with their unique design and innovative technological solutions, and therefore they still attract customers from all over the world. Precision, class, good style and attractive minimalism - all these features characterise Junghans watches.

The 160th anniversary of Junghans watches

Germany, 1861. At that time, the mechanics and engineers living in Schwarzwald began a real revolution in the field of precise devices. One of them was Erhard Junghans. He started the production of high-tech watches, which quickly became one of the best watches available on the German market. Over time, the watches also successfully conquered foreign markets. The company’s success lies in accuracy, quality and incredible design. In 1903, Junghans boasted the title of the largest watch factory in the world. And 60 years later, the company manufactured 20,000 watches a day and employed over 6,000 people.

Junghans watches are the best proof that a stereotype about German precision and accuracy is actually true. The brand is constantly developing, offering its customers more and more advanced timepieces.

160 years have passed since Junghans released the first watches on the market. Read which collections made the brand particularly famous!

Junghans max bill

Junghans max bill watches celebrate their 60th anniversary this year. Who was Max Bill, after whom the watch collection is named? Generally speaking, he was an artist. He graduated from the German art school Bauhaus in Weimar and worked as an architect, sculptor and product designer. Max Bill started working with the Junghans brand in 1961. In the same year, he designed his legendary wristwatches. The Junghans max bill watches look almost exactly the same as in the 60s. The subdued colours (white, silver, grey or black) and subtle hands make the dial look very delicate and elegant. The watches come with a leather strap or a mesh bracelet. They’re usually powered by a proprietary quartz movement.
