Junghans Worldtimer Chronograph – classic looks with state-of-the-art radio control technology
Technological innovation has a long tradition at Junghans. The watch models of the Avantgarde collection offer enduring proof of this: precision, comfort and polarising design in a futuristic appearance. These attributes are also embodied in the latest addition to the collection: the Worldtimer Chronograph.
The latest model of the Avantgarde collection performs a successful balancing act between the traditional design found in mechanical timepieces and futuristic technology, expressed in innovative design elements. The classic, rounded case combines analogue and digital displays. Integrated in the geometry of the analogue minute display, the round window of the hour display is an innovative design feature. The separate, fine silver-plated hour disc changes to the subsequent number on the hour, offering an analogy to the retrograde displays found in mechanical timepieces.
The additional digital display of weekday, date and calendar week make the Worldtimer Chronograph the ideal time manager. The FSTN technology employed guarantees the high legibility of the LC display from the side perspective. The global qualifications are not solely down to the automatic reception of the time signals for Europe (DCF 77), the USA (WWVB) and Japan (JJY 40/60), as well as the option of setting a second time zone: there is also the additional choice of language for the weekday display, with a choice of German, English or French. In combination with the alarm, countdown and chronograph function the Worldtimer Chronograph is a useful and versatile chronological instrument.
The functional designations on the case serve to improve ease of operation for the chronograph. Sapphire crystal domed on both sides and featuring anti-reflection coating on the inside protects the matt black dial with applique and the integrated LC display. The window in the back of the case is also produced from sapphire crystal and enables a view of both the rear of the movement (decorated with Côtes de Genève and rhodium plated) and the antenna. Water resistant to 5 atm, the chronograph is well-equipped for everyday use. A crocodile leather strap with stainless steel folding clasp completes the features of the Worldtimer Chronograph.
