    Danish vs. German design

    Hello fellow watch-entusiast

    I would like to hear your opinion on these two 41 size models: Georg Jensen Koppel and Junghaus Form C.

    I like both watches. But which of the two watches would you prefer? (considering looks, quality, finish, refinement etc.).

    Not familiar w Georg Jensen, but that subdial layout is silly. Way too close to center and looks like a tiny movement used in a large case.

    Junghans 100% here.

    Plus from design perspective - Junghans is sleeker, has better and more interesting case finish and design. Georg Jensen looks like DW. Thick, simple case, no changes in case finish

    The Junghans design shows considerable thought.

    Agree with Ender, I prefer the Junghans design. I appreciate balance in my wine and watches. The Junghans has it, the Georg Jensen doesn’t.
    (I like the Junghans ChronoScope even more!)

    Like both looks, but the Junghans does more "right". The Jensen definitely has that movement-too-small-for-the-watch look. I like the two subdials style, as a nice change of pace, though I think the Jensen has a cleaner dial.

    Where the strap meets the case is nicer as well

    Re: Danish vs. German design

    Would like both better if they were in slightly smaller 38mm cases. Agree with the comments that they give the appearance of a small movement (not that the size of the movement matters other than the overall appearance). Not keen on the date cutting into the subdial of the GJ with a lot of white space going spare or in the middle of the dial in the Junghans. Both 'faults' would bug me. I suspect that there's a general axiom among manufacturers that men's watches should be 40+mm. Pfft.

    I'd keep looking...

    The tricompax layout is way too close together. Like cross eyes.

    Koppel here. Why not the Junghans? --don't really like the date at 3 (if at all), and don't like the flimsy-looking push-button mushrooms for the chrono.

    Personally, though, would buy neither if I were going for the simple style as shown here, as the very fact of adding the chrono complication ruins the effect--a kind of visual oxymoron--a simple/clean dial complicated/cluttered by a chronograph.

    Between the two, I’d go with the Junghans
