This company is the most famous clock maker based in Germany, as a result of its world class innovations in clock manufacturing and time keeping. In 1861, Von Erhard, Franz Xaver and Hansin Schramberg in Scharzwald began production for clock parts. The parts side of the business proceeded to grow so rapidly and so successfully that the brother then decided to commence production of clocks of a superior quality and class. They began this production in 1866 under the branding of "Junghans." Some 25 years later, that brother created the logo which we see to the left, which depicts a time gear wheel and the name of the company. This logo has virtually stood unchanged for all this time.
