Signs of the times
Modern time signal transmitters feature levels of accuracy that are measured in nanoseconds. In 1990 Junghans was the first company worldwide that succeeded at efficiently receiving radio signals in a wristwatch – ushering in an all-new era in chronometry. Today, Junghans’ radio-controlled watches continue to evolve with new and continuously enhanced technologies and manufacturing processes.
Individuality is never found on a product line
Technological distinctiveness calls for customized manufacturing. And the process can only begin when all components have successfully passed quality controls. Following dial assembly, mounting of the hands and setting into the case, a radio-controlled timepiece goes through very special tests, such as a time signal reception sensitivity test for different frequencies in our in-house time tunnel. A mechanical Junghans will remain with a single watchmaker or a small team of specialists, who are fully responsible for its development from the first moment onwards, all the way through to power reserve finetuning and final water-resistance testing.
