The Junghans Meister (Master in German) line dates back to the 1930’s when it was originally developed to demonstrate the brands’ highest technical achievements. Now, the Meister line celebrates the history of the brand through vintage-inspired designs ranging from simple dress watches to calendar complications and chronographs. Throughout the line you will find Junghan’s dedication to clean, restrained design and high-quality finishing.
The Meister Telemeter is a reinterpretation of early 20th-century multi-scale chronographs. As the name suggests, you’ll find an elegantly printed telemeter scale in red around the perimeter of the watch, as well as a tachymeter, which can be used to measure the distance of an event (such as lightning) via light and sound with the chronograph. The 40.8mm watch the just radiates class with its vintage detailing and incredible finishing. The massively domed, brushed metal dial on this watch will turn heads and start many conversations.
Inside of the Meister Telemeter is the J880.3 Caliber. This Swiss-made automatic movement is based on the ETA 2892 with a Dubois Depraz 2030 chronograph module, which features 45-jewels,hand-winding, 40hr power reserve, a frequency of 28,800bph and hacking (the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out).

Since 1861, the town of Schramberg, Germany, nestled sleepily in the Black Forest, has been home to one of the greatest names in German watchmaking: Junghans. For over a century and a half, the brand has produced a stunning array of watches and clocks for almost every conceivable application, from egg timers to cockpit clocks for Bf-109 fighter aircraft, but today their collection is comprised mostly of a few lines of clean, design-oriented timepieces.
Junghans’ style trends toward sleek minimalism, with a healthy dose of mid-century style to keep things unique and interesting. This shines through especially well in their Meister Pilot series, with a one of a kind scalloped rotating bezel based on the pilot’s chronographs Junghans supplied to the newly reforming German air force, in the 1950s. The real star of the show for Junghans, however, is the Max Bill series, named after the eponymous Bauhaus designer.
