In the valleys of the Black Forest region of Germany, the Zeller and Junghans clock component factory was founded in 1861 on the site of an old mill. Looking to the USA for inspiration, the star shaped Junghans logo was first seen in 1888. By 1918 a new larger factory was built with the focus on light airy spaces for ease of working on the tiny componentry. As early as 1936, Junghans began making their own in-house movements, the first of which was known as the J80 calibre. By 1956 Junghans were the biggest manufacturer of chronometers in Germany and the third biggest in the world. With a race on to launch the first German quartz watch, Junghans crossed the line in 1970 with a prototype Astro-quartz that went into production in 1972. That same year Junghans was the official timekeeper of the Munich Olympic games. In 1985 the first Junghans radio-controlled clock was a precursor to the miniaturised wristwatch version in 1990. Having bought the company in 2000, in 2009 Egana Goldpfeil the parent company suffered a financial crisis and Junghans went back into private ownership.
The Junghans Max Bill collection was first launched in 1961 having been designed by the Bauhaus school student Max Bill. The collaboration was successful and Junghans links to the simple, purist Bauhaus style became a key part of the brand identity and a pillar of its watch collections.
The Junhans Form collection owes much to the same guiding principles of simplicity and utility combined with comfort in the convex case side profile.
