Great moments in timekeeping. The 1972 Olympic Games. The whole world is looking at Munich. And at Junghans. As the official timekeeper for the games, Junghans sets new standards in sports time measurement. Using starting pistols, photoelectric barriers, high-precision digital clocks and the world’s first colour photofinish pictures, Junghans makes a name for itself as a timekeeper at sporting competitions. The Junghans timing team travels to major athletics competitions in Mexico, Prague and Turin, among others. This development made the precise timing of perfor-mances in top-class sports an objective, indisputable means of assess-ment. records became clearly measurable. With the new 1972 series, Junghans evokes memories of the era of new measurement technol-ogy and revives the sporting successes and the style of the 1970s.
