When can a watch collection justifiably be called Meister? When it has retained its fascination and form over the course of decades. When technology and design are combined with character. This is the case with the mechanical watches of the Meister collection, which were first produced in the 1930s, with their heyday in the 1950s and 1960s. Numerous calibres were developed in Schramberg during this time. The most sophisticated of these were fitted to the Meister watches. From 1950 onwards Junghans also produced wristwatch movements in chronometer quality; by 1956 the company was already the third-largest producer of chrono-meters in the world. 1957 saw the appearance of the first automatic chronometer calibre J83, one of the finest of its kind anywhere. The Meister legend lives on in our new models. They are an homage to the design and technical achievements of that era.
