    Junkers watches

    Junkers airplanes and watches have only same name but that's about it, nice watches though and the price isn't bad.
    I do love that there's a story to how watch was named.

    Pictures in imgur, just in case.

    1919 was the maiden flight of the Junkers F13 airplane that was ahead of it's time.

    Sellita SW290-1 decorations and the watch came with genuine alligator strap, so the MSRP 800 is ok 'ish.

    yeah because of the collaboration between Hugo Junkers and the famous Bauhaus artist Marcel Breuer
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...
