Enthusiasm for design and German engineering

Junkers watches are a reminiscence of the brilliant German engineer and entrepreneur Heinrich Hugo Junkers. Junkers is considered one of the most important industrialists of German commercial aircraft and aircraft engine construction of his time. The aircraft models he designed in the 1920s and 30s – the Junkers F 13, Junkers G 38 and the legendary Junkers Ju 52, also affectionately known as Aunt Ju – achieved particular fame. Around a hundred years later, the timepieces of the same name still bear witness to a spirit of adventure, great visions and boundless freedom – watches for adventurers, for inventors and for aviators.

Junkers watches are the embodiment of mobility, aesthetics and technology in a unique accessory for everyday life.

Sophisticated and functional pilot watches

Junkers watches have been designed and manufactured with great attention to detail and a commitment to timeless beauty since 1997 – initially by the Munich-based company Pointtec, and since 2018 by the Junkers family itself. Here, all timepieces are inspired by the rich Junkers company history and the spirit of the company founder. Junkers offer not only technically sophisticated and functional pilot watches, but also sporty, classic and, moreover, elegant timepieces in the spirit of the Bauhaus teachings.

The flying man

Junkers focuses in particular on elegant 3-hand watches and on classic chronographs in minimalist design. These are usually powered by high-quality automatic and quartz movements from Switzerland and Japan. The timepieces are robust, durable and protected by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. All models are available with leather straps, and some with milanese bracelets – a machine-interwoven bracelet made of precious metal. Incidentally, the Junkers logo was designed in 1924 by the Kiel-born expressionist painter and advertising graphic artist Friedrich Peter Drömmer under the title The Flying Man.
