Junghans unveiled Meister Chronoscope Terrassenbau to mark the 100th anniversary of the architectural masterpiece by Philipp Jakob Manz. The terrace building in Schramberg is one of the most spectacular industrial buildings worldwide to be built on a hill. The nine-step terrace building was built in 1918 to accommodate larger production for Junghans. In the 1950’s and 1960’s, at the peak of mechanical watch industry, numerous calibers were developed in Schramberg. Components were manufactured in the building to the front of the site, with caliber and watch assembly in the terrace building. The top floor was reserved for the assembly and regulation of chronometers.
