The history of Junghans men’s watches
Founded in 1861, Junghans is a classic watchmaker. With a rich and prestigious history, Junghans was producing some of the earliest Chronograph men’s watches in the 1940s, at first exclusively for pilots and eventually available to the general public. The company hired Max Bill during the 1950s – who helped to shape a collection of Bauhaus watches, which has remained a steady bestseller ever since.
