Miscellaneous

The new Junghans pocket watch. To meet the demand for a cheap and reliable pocket watch the Gebr. Junghans A.-G. company in Schramberg created a new model of a pocket watch, from which one of the first is present now. We had, like many colleagues who participated the Black Forest travel, the opportunity to look at the items of the new pocket watch during fabrication. It is a solid and strong-built movement with seven stones, i.e. thus, only the balance has jewels. Anchor pallets and lift pin are also have jewels. The Breguet spring is made from compensating metal. Setting the hands is done by pulling out the crown. The cannon-pinion sits on the full minute drive.
The watch is fitted with enamel dial. The housing have dust covers and parts excluding the glass edge, hinges. The prices of BLS for glossy white metal housing and BUS for white metal housing with "gallonierten" edges and bow for the new watch should be a good selling items for Junghans. One can only congratulate the company on the new product.
