Meister Chronoscope by Junghans

A pioneering brand with over 150 years in the business, with a strong commitment to their German origins.

The Meister was first built in the 1930’s and refined over time to become the elegant and at the same time a sturdy mechanical chronograDSC05816ph it now represents.

The 40.7 mm diameter stainless steel case oozes cool retro looks and sits beautifully on the wrist at just under 13.9 mm, just enough to get that cuff over, if you so desire. The chronograph pushers work effortlessly with the function and the crown with its “J” within the brands 8 point star, changes both day & date functions with extreme ease.

“The eight-point star that is still the Junghans trademark today was first registered in 1890.”

The hardened convex plexiglass distorts the dial, when viewing from the side but still allows the viewer to clearly see the markers and sub-dials when looking at the watch naturally.

This particular model, ref 027/4526.00 with the German day and ref 027/4526.01 with the English day, has a sun ray brush blue dial, which changes in shade dependant on the reflection of the sun. Junghans have also applied an environmentally luminous substance to the hands for night time legibility.

Equally on the reverse of the watch, through the exhibition case back, you can see the Junghans calibre J880.1 powering this timepiece and the attention to detail on the Côtes de Genève striped JUNGHANS stamped rotor.

Fitted here with a tan horse skin strap and steel pin buckle or available with the steel bracelet.

The Meister Chronoscope also comes in other dial colours such as sun ray dark grey, matt silver plated or anthracite grey dial. There is also a stainless steel PVD coated (in gold effect) case.
