Daily Discovery: Junghans Classic Wristwatch at the Paul Smith Store
by Daniel Haim
As most of you already know, I have a weakness for watches. I’ve been wearing the shiny Big Bang King that’s topped with Black Diamonds on it’s bezel. Yeah, that’s that $74,500 Hublot watch you’ve been seeing on @Bloginity.
Truth be told, I’m not into shiny stuff so much as I’m into simple and elegant watches. I recently came across a beautiful classic watch by Junghans. Just take a look at the picture and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
Price tag is $2,100. Call Paul Smith shop on 17th Street for more information.
The Junghans watch factory came into being in 1861. Businessman Erhard Junghans founded the company in Schramberg, a small town in the Black Forest, together with his brother-in-law Jakob Zeller-Tobler. At first, they specialized in manufacturing individual parts for watch production. The precision of Junghans work quickly became synonymous with outstanding quality of manufacturing, and the foundation was laid for a complete watchmaking enterprise. The first watches bearing the Junghans brand were designed and constructed by the company’s own master watchmakers in 1866
