JUNGHANS ( EASY SPEAK = YO-HANS ) WAS CREATED IN 1861 BY:

Erhard Junghans in Schramberg, Baden-Württemberg.

In 1875 Erhard Junghans' son, Arthur, took over the company with a focus on innovation yielding no less than 300 patented inventions under his management.

Junghans soon became Germany's,  and then the world's, largest clock manufacturer.

JUNGHANS  began to produce wristwatches in 1927.

JUNGHANS made the  BoUk-1 Fl. 23885 aircraft clocks for German aircraft in WWII.

JUNGHANS made large wrist type chronographs that were worn on the leg of the pilot.

JUNGHANS developed the legendary J88 wristwatch chronograph movement as early as 1946.

Beginning in the 1950s, famous designer Max Bill created clocks and watches for Junghans.

An example of his work is a wall clock designed in 1956 that is in the collection of The New York Museum of Modern Art .

Bill also created aesthetic designed, precision mechanical wristwatches for Junghans.

In the late 1980s, Junghans introduced the first radio-controlled table clock on the world market.

In 1990, the first radio-controlled wristwatch followed, called the MEGA 1.

In 1995 Junghans presented the ultimate combination of the solar powered watch with ceramic housing and solar-powered technology.

Currently, Junghans, in partnership with Seiko, is developing a watch which will automatically set the local time in what ever respective time zone a wearer i. Say, you board a plane in NY (US EASTERN TIME) and fly to California   (WESTERN US TIME) your watch will reset itself automatically. Say you board a plane in cali for China, your watch will reset itself in each zone. .

The Junghans Caliber J 59 is a well and lean constructed movement with a diameter of ten lignes, which was made probably in the late 1930ies or 1940ies.On the lean dial side, the Junghans J59 uses a yoke winding mechanism, whose minute work cock is so cleverly constructed, that it hold all wheels perfectly in position, even when the dial is missing.

*********************************

HERE IS THE HACKED UP STORY FOR YOU

 

WWII
CENTER SWEEP


Prior to WWII, most watches had a sub-second register above the #6 position. This design failed to allow precision seconds timing. The sub-second style dial, with a tiny second hand rotating around a tiny seconds register at the 6 position, was difficult to utilize for timing events. In most cases it was ignored. On the other hand, a sweep second hand could be used to time events, mark events, and was easier to read .

By 1942, the sweep second hand watch had became "the" watch. Two of the major reasons were the Government issued U.S.A. A-11 hacking sweep seconds pilots watch and the sweep seconds watches in demand by Doctors, Medics and Nurses and other professionals.. The sweep second watch simply made the watch more than an instrument to "tell time"....

THE DESIGN

So, what did Pierce and others do?

Did they re-tool and re-design new movements? NO!

They simply placed a hollow canon pinion that allowed a wheeled center shaft to protrude through the dial, mounted a second hand to it, and ran the combo with the very sub-seconds wheel they were eliminating...

gsw/mwb/gsww archive photo

 

Instead of the drive train turning the dial protruding shaft/pinion at 6 position connected to the tiny second hand, they mounted a large brass/alloy wheel on the opposite side of the shaft that now protruded through the bridge. That wheel turned a wheel on top of a NEW center "shaft' held in position be a new this jeweled bridge that went through a new HOLLOW center cannon pinion in the center of the movement that then protruded through the center of the dial where a new long sweep second hand attached;  the idea being that one had a large second hand that went round in tune with the movement and the chapter ring so one could count, time & now even synchronize
