For years now, one of my own features of BaselWorld is to visit my friends from Junghans for lunch. Their HQ for the week is only a stone expendable from the BaselWorld area in a close by inn. Junghans discharges incredible watches quite a long time after year – simply investigate their last year’s setup . As you probably are aware, plan has a vital influence in their product offering, particularly in their Max Bill line. This how anyway I’ll take a nearer at the  Meister Chronoscope Terrassenbau. A similarly interesting new oddity from Junghans.

Meister Chronoscope Terrassenbau

The name Terrassenbau (Terrace Building) comes from the old Junghans building that they opened in 1918 and thought about an engineering marvel of the time. It is a nine-ventured patio building based on the slant of a valley in the Black Forrest. As time flew by Junghans fabricated greater and more current structures and the old Terrassenbau became outdated. Until 2015 when the company concluded that it is time repair the old spot. We visited the destinations before the development began during the introduction of the – then new – Junghans Meister Pilot . It appears to be that the venture is before long arriving at its end and in the not so distant future the structure will be opened to people in general after such countless long stretches of carelessness. To commemorate this exceptional event Junghans delivered the Meister Chronoscope Terrasenbau in 2 metals. Let’s take a nearer look.
