JUNGHANS MEISTER PILOT CHRONOSCOPE Model 27/3590.00Junghans Germany 1861
In the 1930s, Junghans were manufacturing control panel instruments for aeroplanes and airships, ultimately devising a legendary pilot chronograph for the German Armed Forces in the 1950s. The fascination with aviation is clearly evident in the Meister Pilot: Distinctive luminescent numerals and hands on the dial ensure optimum readability. The ergonomically designed bezel provides exceptional grip, as well as a unique look.
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.
