Some vintage Junghans chrono using the J88 movement


The original military use Junghans Chronograph J88s, had a matte twelve sided bezel (is there a word for this? xxxgon?) A pilot watch is always comes with a matte surface at that time as it wont reflect the sun-lights which affect the pilot sights.




The doctors watch with blued hands, and a chromed bezel.

12 sided shapes are apparently called dodecagon...

Some Press Release from the Brand

2013 is the calendar year of the Junghans Meister

    The year 2013 is the year of classic Meister watches at Uhrenfabrik Junghans. The new Meister Kalender and Meister Agenda complications are worthy additions to the successful range of elegant timepieces. With the Meister Chronometer Gold Junghans is also continuing the series of limited edition collector's pieces in real gold.

    History of the Junghans Meister

    Production of the first Meister models in the 1930s heralded the dawn of a new era for Junghans. In addition to their appearance, the Meister watches are characterised by their intricately refined movements. By 1936 the calibre J80 was already equipped with a central second, for example. The finest model was the J80/2 movement, decorated with Côtes de Genève, viewed as the centrepiece of the Meister watches. From 1951 the Meister models also benefited from the J82 chronometer movement with its unusually large screw balance, which was perfected continuously until its production ceased in 1960, having been fitted to thousands of officially tested chronometers. The current Meister range stands once again for the mechanical expertise in watchmaking at Junghans, further underscored by the "Made in Germany" seal of quality.

The 1952 Meister




    Limited Meister Chronometer Gold


    One particular treasure is the Meister Chronometer Gold: limited to just 99 timepieces, it is a stylish combination of classic design and the highest accuracy. The delicate interaction between the 18-kt. rose gold case and the ivory-coloured dial enables the classic face of the Meister Chronometer to shine in the warmest of hues. Equipped with the J820.1 movement, the model has references to the 1950s, an era of significance for Junghans, when the company was the third largest manufacturer of chronometers worldwide. Like the current Meister Chronometer, the historic chronometer calibre J83 was already equipped with an automatic winding mechanism. Today, it is still viewed as one of the finest movements to be manufactured in Germany. As a continuation of its historic predecessor, the new Meister Chronometer Gold manifests a strong historic connection. As in the J83, it contains a hairspring in Nivarox 1 quality manufactured by Carl Haas, with the blue colour exclusive to Junghans. It makes a major contribution to ensuring that the Meister Chronometer Gold receives its official certificate of accuracy. With the unusual blue hairspring and the fine limitation Junghans highlights the exclusivity of this watch.



    Meister Kalender

    The moon has been a key companion to mankind since time immemorial. It helps provide orientation regarding time and space, controls the tides of the oceans and is extolled by poets as a mystical heavenly body. The energy and grandeur of the moon has inspired the watchmakers at Junghans to offer this heavenly body a worthy stage in a Meister watch. The clear positioning of the week day and month outside of the centre of the dial means that the Meister Kalender enjoys optimal legibility. In keeping with the rest of the range, the moon phase with date display has a bowl-shaped bezel, which lends the timepiece its masterful appearance. The design of the Meister Kalender is harmonious down to the tiniest detail, with the stars of the moon display glowing in the respective case colour of silver, yellow or rose gold. One highlight can be discovered when viewing the heavenly bodies: a Junghans star, lighting up the firmament.



    Meister Agenda

    The Meister Agenda is a precious watch in more than one sense of the word. Because it combines fine aesthetics with unusual complications. In addition to displaying the week days and date, calendar week and power reserve also have their bowl-shaped place on the dial. The Meister Agenda facilitates the planning of activities with its calendar week display making it ideally suited to the requirements of business life. A Junghans-specific movement modification that positions the day display in a window lends symmetrical order to the individual functions. The dial is set in a stainless steel case with a diameter of 40.4 mm, with an optional gold-coloured finish. High-quality straps in alligator leather, horse leather or stainless steel round off the elegant appearance of the Meister Agenda.

This is the brief intro of the Erhard Junghans collection  :) :)

The Erhard Junghans collection is the series that pays tribute to the founder and named after him.
This is the higher end collection after the Max Bill, Meister and Bogner. Which using movement derived from non swiss mechanical movement but the finest movement from Japan. The collection consist of three range:
1) Aerious: 46.6mm pilot watch with ergonomically designed chrono pusher.
2) Creator: Unique german design, make use of spaces between the bridge on the dial to create retrogrades.
3) Tempus: Classic watches with Roman Numerics.

The collection was launched in year 2006, at that time, the company was managed by Heinz W. Pfeifer (Guy who bought over Glashütte Original at year 1994 and successfully  revived both Glashütte Original and Union and sold to swatch group at year 2000)

The watchmakers manufacture the Erhard Junghans watches at the same spot (Junghans Schramberg facility) where their special history began. The original company building now houses state-of-the-art workbenches still imbued with the spirit of Erhard Junghans.


Two movement was introduced, It was the new Caliber J890, a classic column wheel chronograph movement with date and power reserve indication, the movement was derived from the base movement 6s37 or SII TC78 of SII (Seiko Instrument Incorporation) the movement was used in Seiko Credor watches. However the J890 had one additional jewel, 41 jewels instead of 6s37 40 jewels.
J890


The new caliber J830 with date and central seconds, which derived from the Grand Seiko 9SXX movement.
J830


Both calibers work with a frequency of 28,800 semi-oscillations per hour and have a power reserve of more than 50 hours. They are also refined with stripes of type "Côtes de Genève" on bridge and rotor. For the decoration of the movement blued screws are used.

All the Chronograph model in the Erhard Junghans range is equipped with the J890 movement.
Aerious

Creator

Tempus


Mean while the J830 movement is cased with the 3 hands model.
Tempus Gold

Creator Retrograde


The models of the Erhard Junghans Collection not only represent the ideal of a timepiece by appreciating common values, but they are also a tribute to the company founder Erhard Junghans – one of the true pioneers of the fine German art of watchmaking.
