Baselworld is fast approaching and Junghans has already granted a glimpse of a new model, which will be introduced in March. The Meister Kalender is a Junghans classic and the new model we’re going to introduce here today showcases Italian elegance at its finest. The watch was designed and manufactured, like always, with meticulous attention to detail, which is particularly evident in the moon phase display.
Meister – a label that stands for an entire Junghans watch range. The balanced design of the dial with its harmonious proportions has been a characteristic of the Meister line since the 1930s, together with the best movements produced at the company. In the 1950s the watch designers addressed the challenge of reducing the volumes of the watch and creating intricate timepieces, despite the relatively high movement.
The models are an homage to the design philosophy and technical achievements of that era. Modern technology, enthralling proportions and elegant lines are still features of these Junghans classics today.
The blue dial with sunray finish is dominated by the moon phase display with integrated date display at six o’clock. The moon phase display is created in Junghans’s own facilities and the star of Junghans can be discovered under the celestial bodies for the careful observer. Day and month are displayed in two windows in the upper half of the dial.
The steeply domed plexiglas and dial in combination with the thin-walled case is resulting in a new, elegant and graceful look and making for an unmistakable appearance. The stainless steel case has a diameter of 40.4 mm and a height of 12 mm and is water-resistant up to 3 atm.
The Junghans Meister Kalender is powered by an automatic movement, the chronometer calibre J800.3. It offers a power reserve of up to 38 hours and sports a beautiful finish. The rotor surface comes with stripe finishing and an engraved logo, the barrel, wheel train and balance bridge are diamond cut. The calibre can be seen through the mineral glass back.
The harmonious combination of the leather strap in cognac and a dark blue dial is one of the most popular colour combinations in the Meister range. It represents not only elegance but also, maybe more than anything else, for stylistic confidence.
