Junghans Watch Factory was founded in 1861 by Erhard Junghans in Schramberg, a small town in the Black Forest of Germany. The first Junghans watches were designed and constructed by the company’s master Watchmakers in 1866. By 1900 this was the largest timepiece manufacturer in Germany with over 3,000 employees and in 1903 they relocated to Schramberg in Baden Wurtemburg.
Today, a mechanical Junghans watch will remain with a single watchmaker or a small team of specialists, who are fully responsible for its development from the first moment onwards.
"An innovative spirit and the incessant pursuit of precision" is the Junghans mission statement – and the German brand uses custom equipment to assemble each of its distinguished watches. A stalwart of fine timepieces for over 150 years, the label prides itself on attention to detail and ergonomic designs.
