"Junghans Uhren GmbH is a German watch and clock manufacturer. The company is located in the district of Rottweil, in the town of Schramberg, Baden-Württemberg, southwest Germany. On 15 April 1861 Erhard Junghans created the company Junghans und Tobler together with his brother-in-law Jakob Zeller-Tobler in Schramberg. In 1866, shortly before Erland Junghans died and his wife took over the company, the first Junghans watches appeared. She was succeeded by her sons, Erhard Jr. and Arthur, the latter of whom spent much time in the United States, where he learned innovative American production techniques that enabled the company to market affordable and popular timepieces to the German public. The USA was also the inspiration for the five-pointed star as the Junghans logo, shortly to be replaced by an eight-pointed star, intended to symbolize a gear wheel, which is still in use. By the year 1903, Junghans had the largest watch and clock factory in the world. The company began to produce wristwatches in 1927, and over the following decades created clocks and watches for the civilian market and the German air force. Beginning in the 1950s, the Bauhaus-trained designer Max Bill created products for the firm, notably the teardrop-shaped "Kitchen Clock with Timer," followed by a series of watches, the first of which launched in 1961. Many of the firm's best-selling watches today are based on those designed by Bill. In 1956 it was the third largest chronometer manufacturer right behind Rolex and Omega. In the late 1980s, Junghans introduced the first radio-controlled table clock on the world market. In 1990 the first radio-controlled wristwatch, called the MEGA 1, followed, designed by Hartmut Esslinger and his firm Frog Design. In 1995 Junghans presented a solar-powered watch with ceramic housing. Together with the Japanese firm Seiko, Junghans developed a globally-oriented wristwatch that automatically sets the local time in respective time zones. Junghans had been owned by Egana Goldpfeil from Hong Kong since the 1990s. In 2008, Egana Goldpfeil and Junghans went bankrupt. The company is currently owned by local businessman and politician Hans-Jochem Stein (CDU)." (Source: Wikipedia)
