Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Extra-Thin Tourbillon with New Sunburst Tapisserie Dial (SIHH 2018)

Junghans Meister Chronoscope with Gold and Blue Scheme


The German Junghans Meister assortment was first presented during the 1930s and we as of late checked on some compelling models including the Meister Driver Handaufzug and Meister Hand-Winding , reasoning that both were brilliant offers. The Meister Chronoscope line adds a chronograph complication to the particular styling of the assortment. Restricted versions are consistently attractive, however new shading ranges can keep a line new when the plan is otherwise consummated. That is the thing that we have with the new Meister Chronoscope wearing a steel case with a PVD-covering, striking blue dial and blue crocodile lash. It’s otherwise a similar generally welcomed Meister Chronoscope, however the new shading combination adds a character that Junghans states “connotes tastefulness and concordance and oozes unwinding.” Let’s investigate this most recent Chronoscope makeover.

The 316L treated steel case has a gold PVD-covering (actual fume statement) that gives a hotter esthetic to the cooler untreated steel models. The measurement is 40.7mm with a tallness of 13.9mm. The gem is arched plexiglass with a Sicralan covering to build hardness and scratch obstruction. As referenced in past Meister reviews, the utilization of acrylic can be a polarizing component for a cutting edge watch, in spite of the fact that it gives a gentle mutilation and vintage character. Perceiving this, Junghans offers a sapphire gem choice for those needing present day strength. A five-times screwed caseback has a mineral glass display window exhibiting the Swiss programmed movement.

The dial of the Junghans Meister Chronoscope has a dull blue get done with fine sunray brush, complemented by four applied gold lists at 12, 6, 3 and 9 o’clock, and gold hands for both time and chronograph capacities. A day-date complication sits to one side of the 3 o’clock record. Two enormous, recessed sub-dials sit at 12 and 6 o’clock offering chronograph counters, and a more modest seconds sub-dial sits at 9 o’clock. The marked knurled crown is flanked by cleaned chronograph pushers, all gold PVD-covered, and the case is water-impervious to 30 meters.

The Junghans Meister Chronoscope is controlled by the Junghans type J880.1 programmed, in view of the ETA 7750. It has 25 gems, beats at 28,800vph (4Hz) with a 48-hour power hold. Capacities incorporate focal hours, minutes and chronograph seconds, 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock, 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock, little seconds at 9 o’clock and a day-date complication at 3 o’clock. The ETA 7750 traces all the way back to the 1970s and is a genuine industry workhorse. Seen from the display caseback, the Junghans rotor is enhanced with Côtes de Genève with some extra perlage on the development and blued screws.

The 21mm dull blue leather lash has a gator example and compliments the blue dial well. It includes a gold PVD-covered steel pin clasp. This blue rendition of the Junghans Meister Chronoscope retails for CHF 1,940 and can be bought at Junghans’ online store or taking part retailers. More data can be found at the Junghans site . This most recent release to the Meister Chronoscope assortment upgrades Junghans’ arrangement of reasonable, trendy and vintage-enlivened mechanical watches from a celebrated brand established in Schramberg, Germany back in 1861.
