The Junkers series have made the best use of historic aircraft and cockpit designs to come up with a unique line of watches. The Junkers Watches are produced by POINTtec. It is a German company that also produces two other lines of watches, namely the Zeppelin and Maximilian series. The inspiration behind the Junkers watches has its base in the legendary corrugated sheet aircrafts of the same name. These were first conceptualized and introduced by aviation visionary Hugh Junkers.
POINTtec has introduced a line of Junkers aero plane watches, which have been carefully designed to include the smallest details of the planes in order to honor the outstanding achievements of Junkers. Therefore, the magnificent Junkers watches bring alive the Junkers aircraft history. The aviation inspired watches, which take lots of ideas from cockpit designs, are therefore unique in their form. In fact, the company has been bestowed with the prestige of supplying to the Bundeswehr, which is the Federal Troops of the National German Military Services.
It is interesting to note that the models of the Junkers watches have their namesakes in famous designs from early aviation history.
