Product Details

This watch is part of the new Junghans Meister Driver Series, and was one of the most popular Junghans models featured at BaselWorld 2016.

This watch quickly became one of our favorite designs, and the link to German classic cars is unmistakable.





The Junghans Connection to Classic Automobiles


Arthur Junghans, son of company founder Erhard Junghans, was an early automobile enthusiast: in 1892 he bought one of the first Daimler test cars, which was personally driven to him in Schramberg by Wilhelm Maybach.Junghans Watches USA

A close friendship developed between the technically-minded Arthur Junghans, Wilhelm Maybach and Gottlieb Daimler.

As a result, Schramberg regularly played host to the technical elite of the era, from Robert Bosch to Ferdinand von Zeppelin.  These meetings held at Arthur Junghans' villa served to generate ideas, with these in turn producing numerous significant inventions.

The new Meister Driver Chronoscope incorporates design elements of these classic cars in its appearance.

The dial resembles a speedometer with large minute and hour markers.  The classic car link is also underscored by color-contrast zones and the two totalizators in bi-compax arrangement.

Junghans worked with Dubois Depraz to design the calibre J880.3 chronograph movement which is beautifully finished with blued screws, perlage and Cotes de Geneve.





Watch Design


As a "measuring stick of excellence", Junghans drew inspiration for this model from an extraordinary - and rare - classic car built in 1932, the Maybach DS 8 Zeppelin. The Maybach is so rare that only 25 exist worldwide.

The discreetly-padded leather strap with contrast stitching also reflects the affinity to the car: not only do they incorporate the interior colors of the classic vehicle, the lining leather also features the typical perforations of the classic car seats.
 
We love grey and anthracite dial on this watch which is finished with lacquer.


Next, the polished stainless steel case continues to add classic appeal. The watch is enclosed by a domed hardened plexiglass crystal with SICRALAN coating for added protection from scratches.

This watch is water resistant to 30 meters and features a Junghans stainless steel fine link bracelet.
