JUNGHANS – MEISTER Pilot Chronoscope


The fascination of flying is alive

The maiden flight was a complete success. Now the runway is clear again, the engines are running and per-mission has been granted for the series model of the Meister Pilot to take off.

Optimal altitude

Following the successful launch of the Meister Pilot Event Edition in the scope of an event at the headquarters of Junghans, the series model of the Meister Pilot is now also on board. The unmistakable design and mechanical independence make the timepiece the perfect wrist-borne co-pilot. The distinctive design elements of the legendary Junghans pilot watch from the 1950s are also to be found in the series model of the Meister Pilot.

The timepiece combines these with the smooth and stylish design of the current Meister collection. The elegant and discreet design of the case and the flowing shape of the lugs focus the attention of the pilot on the large time display. The domed sapphire crystal provides an ideal view of the clear luminescent numerals and distinctive hands. The watch enables good legibility, even in poor lighting conditions and at night. On the dial itself there is a bicompax display, the two totalisers of which are laid out on the 3-9 axis.

Continued tradition

The high demands placed on timekeeping by aviation were first addressed by Junghans in the 1930s, when the company produced on-board clocks for air traffic use. These were manufactured in level 7 of the now heritage-listed terrace building, the structure offered optimal lighting conditions for the delicate task of watchmaking. The classic instrument appearance of the cockpit was also reflected in the legendary Bundeswehr chronograph of 1955.

The design of the Meister Pilot harks back to this: on the bi-directional rotating bezel the 12 distinctive, concave notches ensure a good grip as well as the unmistakable appearance of the timepiece.

The screwed case back features a distinctive element: a specially-designed compass rose, which incorporates the symbolism of classic aviation in the form of an artificial horizon.

The riveted leather strap ensures a secure fit on the wrist. The particular construction of the front assembly lends the timepiece an unusual elegance for a pilot watch – and the lightness required for take-off.
