Alarm Clock in a Metal Case

Junghans, Schramberg, c.1890

After his training as a clockmaker, Arthur Junghans (1852-1920) of Schramberg went to the USA for two years and worked there in clock factories. Upon returning to the Black Forest, he introduced production in series according to the American example. The rise to the top began with the "Nutmeg" model and the "W10" watch movement. By around 1910 Junghans had become the largest clock factory in the world.
