Junghans FORM MEGA

With its modern design, the FORM MEGA radio controlled wrist watch from Junghans emphasizes the overall style of the wearer and wonderfully accentuates each individual character – in every second. Just as a lively major city pulsates day and night without end, the FORM MEGA maintains a meticulous pulse of time thanks to the reliable radio-controlled movement.

The layout of the dial focuses on the most important element: the time. The new radio-controlled movement from Schramberg displays time with extraordinary accuracy. Even when no longer within reception range, the wearer can rely entirely on the FORM MEGA at all times. When journeying to far distant metropolises across the world, the respective time can be set with the crown or by using the Junghans MEGA App – precisely to the second.
