Meister Driver Chronoscope: An expression of pure passion

Junghans Meister Driver Chronoscope Ref. 027 3684 00

Schramberg / Basel, March 2016

Junghans and cars enjoy a close connection dating back over 100 years. Inspired by this, the Meister Driver Chronoscope combines the charm of classic cars with a passion for mechanical timepieces.

Time travel
Arthur Junghans had an enduring influence on the relationship between Uhrenfabrik Junghans and the automobile. Having ordered one of the first Daimler test vehicles in 1892, 1895 saw the son of company founder Erhard Junghans acquire a second automobile: a four-seater Motor-Viktoriawagen. To enable the use of a steering wheel in the car the Schramberg businessman had to produce the worm gear steering himself. At the beginning of the 20th century the first laws were passed regulating speed in built-up areas, increasing the significance of clocks in automobiles. As a consequence in 1908 Junghans produced its first car clocks. These not only aided the time orientation of the driver, they were also a form of tachometer: using the time taken to travel a known distance it was possible to determine the speed at which it was covered – making the car clock a key instrument for drivers.

Stichwort: Napoleon und die dezimale Zeiteinteilung

Am 22. September 1792 rief der Nationalkonvent in Frankreich die Republik aus und schuf noch am gleichen Tag eine neue Zeitrechnung: Ab dem 1. Vendémiaire III (22. September 1794) wurde die dezimal gegliederte Tageseinteilung eingeführt, die auch eine dem entsprechende Dezimaluhr vorsah. In Artikel 11 des Kalendergesetzes vom 4. Frimaire Jahr II (24. November 1793) hieß es: „Der Tag von einer Mitternacht zur anderen ist in zehn Teile oder Stunden eingeteilt, jedes Teil in zehn andere und so weiter bis zur kleinsten meßbaren Einheit der Zeit. Der hundertste Teil einer Stunde heißt Dezimal-Minute, der hundertste Teil einer Minute heißt eine Dezimal-Sekunde."
