Junghans Watches

Founded by Erhard Junghans in Schramberg, in the decades that follow the company went on to write not only industrial, but also urban, regional and even architectural history. By 1903 Junghans owned the world's largest clock factory which still stands.



Since the 1950s, Junghans has created timepieces that represent the Bauhaus-based concept of designer Max Bill. With the New Max Bill Automatic Bauhaus, Junghans has reinterpreted the classic watch with a new and modern style.

About Junghans

Founded by Erhard Junghans in Schramberg, Junghans has intertwined itself with industrial, urban, regional, and even architectural history. The brand launched the world’s largest clock factory in 1903, a site that still stands prominently in the landscape to this day. Considered to be one of the most captivating success stories in Germany’s history of watches and clockmaking, Junghans continue to write history into the 21st century.

Junghans remain committed to their original factory in Schramberg, favouring quality standards that fuse traditional craftsmanship and new technological innovations which have entered the watchmaking sphere. This combined with modern production methods and creative designs is what makes every timepiece with the iconic star so unique.

Meticulousness, expert handiwork and creativity are the characteristics that make up Junghans watches. Each timepiece is made with creative and design processes at once, to ensure it meets strict quality standards. Not only are the finished watches scrupulously examined, but each individual component and mechanism is too. Only once all the necessary elements are deemed satisfactory will they be combined to create a Junghans watch.

History of Junghans Watches

Junghans began in 1861 when Erhard Junghans and his brother-in-law founded the clock component company, Zeller & Junghans. The company produced parts for Black Forest clocks, including wooden cases, bronze signs, clock hands and glass doors. In 1866, Zeller & Junghans expanded their repertoire and began selling clocks. It was in this year that the company obtained a new trademark and the famous star made its first appearance. By 1903, Junghans was the biggest clock and watch factory in the world, producing over 3 million timepieces each year.

In 1949, Junghans created the first chronograph watch with a reliable J88 movement for the newly formed armed forces in Germany. The watch was a huge success and was eventually made available to the public. Another momentous occasion for Junghans was the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Junghans was the official timekeeper of the games and the involvement further cemented its global status as timepiece experts.

Junghans continued to combine precision with innovative ideas and consistently produce the unexpected and in 2009, the business was acquired by Schramberg businessmen Dr Hans-Jochem Steim and Hannes Steim. The new owners’ goal is simple: to preserve Junghans’ heritage and secure the future.

Caring for your Junghans Watch

Junghans watches are delicate instruments so it’s important to take good care of them to ensure they last for years to come. Junghans recommend having your watch serviced every four to six years along with cleaning it regularly at home. At Goldsmiths, we offer in-store watch servicing at our Newcastle and Middlesbrough boutiques or you can choose to have your watch sent to a workshop for Junghans watches.

While our watch servicing includes a deep clean of your Junghans watch, you can also clean it yourself at home if it just needs a little polish. Simply use a soft toothbrush and a small amount of soapy water to gently clean water-resistant cases and metal bracelets, then use a soft cloth to dry.

We know sometimes accidents are unavoidable, which is why we offer Goldsmiths Care on Junghans watches. This service will protect your new watch against accidental damage and theft. All you need to do is visit one of our stores to submit a claim and we’ll repair or replace your watch as soon as possible. Choose between three or five years’ protection – you’ll be covered with just one simple payment and there won’t be any additional fees if you make a claim.
