In 1866 the Junghans brand was established and by 1870 they were producing 100 clocks per day.

In 1870 Arthur Junghans, son of the founder took over and the company went ahead rapidly.

At first, they specialized in manufacturing individual parts for watch production.

Even before the turn of the century, numerous machines and processes were developed that gave Junghans outstanding advantages in terms of quality and manufacturing.

Arthur Junghans focused primarily on innovations in watchmaking, and no less than 300 inventions were patented under his management.

Gebr Junghans Uhrenfabrik was established by Erhard Junghans with Franz Xaver in 1861 in the Black Forest, making parts for clocks.

Erhard Junghans (1823-70) originally followed in his father's footsteps working as a designer in an Schramberg porcelain factory in the Black Forest.

Once the factory and the equipment were set up, Gerhard focused on running the business, his brother Xaver lead the production of clock cases and a professional clockmaker was hired to oversee the production of movements.

After Erhard's death in 1870, the company was run by his sons Arthur and Erhard Jr.
