Embark on a journey through German horological history with the Junghans Trilastic Watch from the 1960s. Rooted in the storied traditions of the Black Forest, Junghans has been a stalwart of German watchmaking since its inception in 1861.

The Trilastic series, born in the mid-20th century, showcases the brand's commitment to excellence during an era marked by technological advancements and meticulous craftsmanship. 

This particular Trilastic model, hailing from the 1960s, exemplifies German engineering at its finest. The watch's distinctive design, with its sleek lines and minimalist aesthetic, reflects the Bauhaus principles that have deeply influenced Junghans over the years. The well proportioned 34mm gold case with the silver dial makes this watch stand out even amongst more expensive peers with the sub second dial adding further intrigue.
