15J Junghans J 59
27X36 MM W/O CROWN

JUNGHANS ( EASY SPEAK = YO-HANS ) WAS CREATED IN 1861 BY: Erhard Junghans in Schramberg, Baden-Württemberg. In 1875 Erhard Junghans' son, Arthur, took over the company with a focus on innovation yielding no less than 300 patented inventions under his management. Junghans soon became Germany's,  and then the world's, largest clock manufacturer. JUNGHANS  began to produce wristwatches in 1927. JUNGHANS made the  BoUk-1 Fl. 23885 aircraft clocks for German aircraft in WWII. JUNGHANS made large wrist type chronographs that were worn on the leg of the pilot. JUNGHANS developed the legendary J88 wristwatch chronograph movement as early as 1946

Beginning in the 1950s, famous designer Max Bill created clocks and watches for Junghans. An example of his work is a wall clock designed in 1956 that is in the collection of The New York Museum of Modern Art . Bill also created aesthetic designed, precision mechanical wristwatches for Junghans.In the late 1980s, Junghans introduced the first radio-controlled table clock on the world market. In 1990, the first radio-controlled wristwatch followed, called the MEGA 1.In 1995 Junghans presented the ultimate combination of the solar powered watch with ceramic housing and solar-powered technology. Currently, Junghans, in partnership with Seiko, is developing a watch which will automatically set the local time in what ever respective time zone a wearer i. Say, you board a plane in NY (US EASTERN TIME) and fly to California   (WESTERN US TIME) your watch will reset itself automatically. Say you board a plane in cali for China, your watch will reset itself in each zone. .

 THE CASE AND STRAP ARE SIGNED D.G.R.M.
Deutsches Reichs GeBrauchsmuster. German Empire Utility Design

The acronym D.R.G.M. with or without punctuation stands for Deutsches Reichsgebrauchsmuster, meaning that the design or function of an item was officially registered inside all of the Germany states.

D.R.G.M. registration offered a basic copyright protection for the duration of three years and included the right to indicate the item status by marking the registered items with the D.R.G.M. acronym. It was left to the registration owner to include the registration number as the D.R.G.M. marking alone was the element with legal  character. The actual result of such a registration (the form of protection) was called Gebrauchsmusterschutz.

The Junghans Caliber J 59 is a well and lean constructed movement with a diameter of ten lignes, which was made probably in the late 1930's or 1940's.On the lean dial side, the Junghans J59 uses a yoke winding mechanism, whose minute work cock is so cleverly constructed, that it hold all wheels perfectly in position, even when the dial is missing.

*************************

HERE IS THE HACKED UP STORY FOR YOU

WWII
CENTER SWEEP


Prior to WWII, most watches had a sub-second register above the #6 position. This design failed to allow precision seconds timing. The sub-second style dial, with a tiny second hand rotating around a tiny seconds register at the 6 position, was difficult to utilize for timing events. In most cases it was ignored. On the other hand, a sweep second hand could be used to time events, mark events, and was easier to read .

By 1942, the sweep second hand watch had became "the" watch. Two of the major reasons were the Government issued U.S.A. A-11 hacking sweep seconds pilots watch and the sweep seconds watches in demand by Doctors, Medics and Nurses and other professionals.. The sweep second watch simply made the watch more than an instrument to "tell time"....

THE DESIGN

So, what did Pierce and others do?

Did they re-tool and re-design new movements? NO!

They simply placed a hollow canon pinion that allowed a wheeled center shaft to protrude through the dial, mounted a second hand to it, and ran the combo with the very sub-seconds wheel they were eliminating...

wpe1.jpg (30490 bytes)
gsw/mwb/gsww archive photo

Instead of the drive train turning the dial protruding shaft/pinion at 6 position connected to the tiny second hand, they mounted a large brass/alloy wheel on the opposite side of the shaft that now protruded through the bridge. That wheel turned a wheel on top of a NEW center "shaft' held in position be a new this jeweled bridge that went through a new HOLLOW center cannon pinion in the center of the movement that then protruded through the center of the dial where a new long sweep second hand attached;  the idea being that one had a large second hand that went round in tune with the movement and the chapter ring so one could count, time & now even synchronize

METAL HEIDECKSBURG CASTLE BADGE
BELONGED TO GERMAN PRISONER OF WAR

German Soldiers in WW2 wore a Winterhilfswerk "Talisman" with names and symbols of German cities, Towns and occupied countries. Many also had metal badges from their homes cities, towns and places. The profits from sale of these "Talisman"  were for poor people in winter (for coal, warm clothes, food), and, after 1941, for warm uniforms for Wehrmacht on the Eastern Front. Many soldiers wore these Winterhilfswerk tags with the names of the towns which they came from along with ID/Dog-Tags.

Heidelberg  is a the fifth-largest city in the State of Baden-Württemberg in south-west Germany and part of the densely populated Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region. Heidelberg lies on the River Neckar in a steep valley in the Odenwald. A former residence of the Electoral Palatinate, Heidelberg is the location of the University of Heidelberg, well-known far beyond its and Germany's borders. Heidelberg is a popular tourist destination due to its romantic and picturesque cityscape, including Heidelberg Castle and the baroque style Old Town. .

The 24th Roman cohort and the 2nd Cyrenaican cohort (CCG XXIIII and CCH II CYR) built a fort in 40 AD.  The Romans then built and maintained permanent camps and a signalling tower on the bank of the Neckar with  a wooden bridge based on stone pillars across it. The camp protected the first civilian settlements that developed. The Romans remained until 260 AD, when the camp was conquered by Germanic tribes

Modern Heidelberg can trace its beginnings to the fifth century. The village Bergheim (Mountain Home) is first mentioned in that period, in documents dated to 769 AD. Bergheim now lies in the middle of modern Heidelberg. The people gradually converted to Christianity. In 863 AD, the monastery of St. Michael was founded on the Heiligenberg inside the double rampart of the Celtic fortress.

During the Nasi regime (1933–1945), Heidelberg was a stronghold of the NSDAP, the strongest party in the elections before 1933 (the NSDAP obtained 30% at the communal elections of 1930. The NSDAP received 45.9% of the votes in the German federal election of March 1933 (the national average was 43.9%). Non-Aryan university staff were discriminated against. By 1939, one-third of the university's staff had been forced out for racial and political reasons. The non-Aryan professors were sent off in 1933, within one month of Hiler's rise to power. The lists were prepared beforehand.


Between 1934 and 1935, the Reichsarbeitsdienst (State labor service) and University of Heidelberg students built the huge Thingstätte amphitheatre on the Heiligenberg north of the old part of Heidelberg, for Nasi (NSDAP) and SS events. A few months later, the inauguration of the huge Ehrenfriedhof memorial cemetery completed the second and last NSDAP project in Heidelberg. This cemetery is on the southern side of the old part of town, a little south of the Königstuhl hilltop. During WWII and after, Wehrmacht soldiers were buried there.

During the Kristallnacht on November 9, 1938, Nasis burned down synagogues at two locations in the city. The next day, they started systematic deportation of Jews, and sent 150 Jews to Dachau concentration camp. On October 22, 1940, during the "Wagner Buerckel event", the Nasis deported 6000 local Jews, including 281 from Heidelberg, to Camp Gurs concentration camp in France. Within a few months, as many as 1000 of them (201 from Heidelberg) died of hunger and diseases. Among the deportees from Heidelberg, the poet Alfred Mombert (1872–1942) left the camp in April 1941 thanks to the Swiss poet Hans Reinhart. From 1942, the deportees that had survived internment in Gurs where deported to Eastern Europe, where most of them were murdered.

On March 29, 1945, the Wehrmacht left the city after destroying three arches of the old bridge, Heidelberg's treasured river crossing. They also destroyed the more modern bridge downstream. The U.S. Army (3rd Infantry, 7th Army) entered Heidelberg on March 30, 1945. The civilian population surrendered without resistance.

Though History denotes the facts of the Brutality and Horror of the nasi Regime and War machine, many Germans, faced with dim prospects of the depression, multiplied by war reperations caused by the German folly of WWI,  joined the military believing they were doing the right thing. Many of these young soldiers, as well as Officers, were ultimately slautered by the Third Reich. Hundreds of thoudsands died on the field and, ultimately, in the  Russian Gulag.

IMG_1173.JPG (184172 bytes)

We chose this original photo because it depicts German officers and enlisted men in 1940, the year when the all consuming Blitzkreig began and a Victory of a sorts permeated the peoples of Germany, when the educated as well as the illiterate were lead to belive they were superior to the world, when they were celibrating what they believed to be their moment on the world stage.

NOTE:
The US transferred 6,000 German officers to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp that now was under Soviet Union administration. The US also shipped 740,000 German POWs as forced labourers to France. The U.S. also  chose to hand over several hundred thousand German prisoners to the Soviet Union in May 1945 as a "gesture of friendship". One million German prisoners died in the Soviet camps between 1941 and 1952
