    There has been a fairly recent post from a member trying to decide between a Junkers Bauhaus and a Junghans Max Bill. He went with the Junkers and then proceeded to post pics of how the hands didn't hit the markers properly.

    Junghans was at one time the largest manufacturer of personal timepieces in the world. They have a history that is second to none. Is the Junghans worth the extra money? YES as far as I'm concerned. Not only for the better quality, but the direct association with Max Bill is there as well.

    Both very nice brands in what they do, but in slightly different leagues.

    You should also take a look at the Dugena range, perhaps a Dugena Festa too perhaps - leaning towards the Junkers in price more than the Junghans

    Pretty much almost every quartz watch under the sun has this problem with the seconds hand, mechanical watches don't because they have smooth sweep seconds hand, i.e. more resolution between seconds

    Might have been the quartz version, I can't remember. Regardless of which model Junkers it was, there's no way I'd go for a Junkers when I could get a Junghans. As already mentioned, a Junghans is in a totally different league in so many ways...real lineage of Max Bill design and not just a wanna-be, and superior quality. As I stated, for ME it's worth the extra money without question.

    One of the watches shown is a pale imitation. The other one is produced since the 60s. Jumping on bandwagons by Junkers. However, the design sells.

    The historical link can only be claimed by Junghans. Max Bill was tied to Junghans for some decades and so the Max Bill clock dial design advected the first Max Bill wrist watch by Junghans in 1961. The 1961 watch was a hw one.
    Catalogue excerpt as of 1962, published in 2002 by a german watch magazine:

    If however you're not looking for the original and you simply like the general looks/aesthetics of both , then how about one from the sister brand of Junkers: Zeppelin ?
    (uses the same movement, which is why it looks so similar) - both made by Point-tec (the manufacturer of Junkers and Zeppelin)

    There are others from other brands too, like the Dugena's

    watchma i guess pointtech (maxmillian graf and junkers))
    but i guess junkers is better than zeiplen right ?

    mc hunter i could go with junghans as i could follow the always rule '' the higher the price the better the product ''
    but why the watch's price is different from ebay to amazon
    and also do you know negative aspects of the hand wind versions ??

    It's the same company (as I realise you now know) - same product with a different mask on - you're saying you prefer Junkers then? :)
