The All-New Junghans Meister Pilot Automatic Watches

The Dial and Strap

The new Pilot Automatic watches take off in three dial variants. The first dark grey (27/44990.00) and the dark green (27/4495.00) are ideal for lovers of classic and sporty designs. Whereas the second dark grey (27/4491.00) presents itself in a more modern and powerful way. Designed to look like an airplane display, each dial features a curved date window. Placed just below the 12 o’clock mark, it acts as an optical counterweight to the small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock. Especially large Arabic numerals provide each dial with a cockpit charm, and for optimal legibility, the hands and indices feature an ecofriendly luminous coating. The hands and indices also feature a gradient effect so that they become darker, and eventually black, the further out to the perimeter the wearer looks. In addition, each dial bears the brand’s historical logo; which stands for Junghans’ traditional attachment to aviation.

The all-new watches come on a riveted leather strap which coordinates with the dial. So the dark grey variants come with a black buffalo leather strap and the dark green model comes with a vintage look dark green/black leather strap. The rivets in the straps are a testament to the robust and durable nature of each watch; they hold the strap securely in place. Further highlighting this great security, each strap fastens with a stainless steel buckle.

The Case and Movement

A satin-finished stainless steel case frames the more classic, sporty variants, whereas a black DLC-coated stainless steel case frames the more modern model. And while the finish differs, all three cases measure 43.3mm in diameter. A bidirectional rotating bezel, with a luminous dot and a scale of 60-minute markings, also frames the dial; it is reminiscent of the 12 concave notches in the bezel of the 1950s Junghans model. Moreover, the scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal makes sure that neither the watch’s visuals nor its legibility are impaired. On the posterior, the screw-fastened stainless steel case back features an ‘Aviation’ engraving. Whilst adding to the overall design it also emphasises the strong connection between aviation and timekeeping.

Beating at the heart of each Meister Pilot Automatic is a self-winding Caliber J840.26 movement; which boasts up to 38 hours of power reserve. The rhodium-plated movement, with blue screws, also offers a beautiful rotor with stripe finishing and an engraved Junghans logo. As well as this, the movement features a diamond cut on barrel, a wheel train and a balance bridge.
