Junghans 1972 Chronoscope Sports Edition 2024

Junghans 1972 Chronoscope Sports Edition 2024 watches

Sports timing has a long tradition at German watch brand Junghans which began back in the 1920s with the first handheld stopwatches and which has continued over the years with larger sporting events, and includes its long-term partnerships with both the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships and several successful top athletes.

During this period, Junghans maintained a separate department for developing technology for sports timing which they used for big sporting events, being the official timer for motor races, skiing world championships, rowing as well as track and field events. 1972 was their peak and a year that has now lent its name to a sporty line of watches.

It is only fitting therefore that the new 1972 Chronoscope Sports Edition 2024 has been launched with three limited edition dial variations that include bright red, silver-grey and dark green, each limited to just 200 pieces.

The dials have a sporty look to them with dynamic double stripes and the number 6 in the form of a racing number, while the historical logo offers a nice contrast to the watch’s sporty modern design which is repeated on the case back.

The 43.3mm stainless steel case has a unidirectional turning bezel and screwed case back engraved with the edition motif and flat sapphire crystal glass lens with anti-reflective coating. Each of the three models is fitted with a leather strap made in the style of traditional driving gloves in corresponding colours, with a quick-release stainless steel buckle and is water resistant to 100 metres.

At the heart of the 1972 Chronoscope Sports Edition 2024 is a quartz Caliber J645.83 movement which displays the date and a second time zone shown in 24-hour time, while the chronoscope has a 1/5 stop seconds and 60-minute counter. All three models have hour and minute hands coated with ecofriendly white luminous substance that contrast nicely with the darker dials and sub dials hands in either yellow or olive brown, giving good readability in poor light.
