The Junghans watch factory came into being in 1861.
Arthur Junghans took over managing the company in 1875, following his father's premature death.
Even before the turn of the century, numerous machines and processes were developed that gave Junghans outstanding advantages in terms of quality and manufacturing.
Arthur Junghans focused primarily on innovations in watchmaking, and no less than 300 inventions were patented under his management.
Once the factory and the equipment were set up, Gerhard focused on running the business, his brother Xaver lead the production of clock cases and a professional clockmaker was hired to oversee the production of movements.
After Erhard's death in 1870, the company was run by his sons Arthur and Erhard Jr.
