Junghans J98/3 (698.71)

Description

In the beginning of then 1950ies, Junghans launched the caliber 98, a form movement, which was very reliable and rugged due to its construction.

It uses a screwless(!) balance, which is secured by the two large inhouse shock protections, a pallet lever escapement and jewels on every axle, except the minute gear.

Additionally, the Junghans J98 has got an indirectly driven center second hand, which is beared in a flexibly held ruby.

The movement is constructed in a cost-efficient way and contains a rocking bar winding mechanism on the dial side.

This movement was so reliably, that was later also available in a selfwinding version.
