Junghans built among others movements for gramophones, as shown here for the Stollwerck Grammophone (french version "Eureka").
These gramophones played from chocolate records that could be eaten after playing. A curiosity, probably rather for promotional purposes and to get in contact with the young record fans. The records are made of chocolate of the confectionery company Stollwerck, which were presented from 1903.
On the records were well-known children's songs to listen to. The records were not as is often assumed, coated with a tin foil but the sound was taken directly from the chocolate surface. The records were written in subscript.
New ways to go in advertising and marketing, was certainly an aspiration of the technology friend Ludwig Stollwerck (* January 22, 1857 in Cologne, † March 12, 1922 in Cologne), who with Thomas Edison occurred in 1894 in connection and in the following year the first stenographers acquired.
From this technique affinity the idea for the chocolate records might have arisen that could be played on a special gramophone, which was equipped with a Junghans movement. The gramophone shown comes from the collection of Wilfried Sator (www.nipperfriend.de) I once again want to say thanks also for the help on the book "Faszination Schellack; Battenberg 2006".
The watch box of a Junghans J84. The exact designation of the caliber is appropriated on the box. RZ means „Radiumzifferblatt“ (radium dial).
The box of a Junghans J93. The exact designation of the caliber is appropriated on the box: 93/6251.
Unfortunately, the box is incomplete. The shown part of the box can be divided, on the inside is written "Geimuplast". On the back the eight-pointed Junghansstar can be found.
A beautiful watch box a Junghans electronic. The inner part in which the diagonal two slots are mounted for engaging the bracelet is unfortunately missing.
A packet sent by the company Junghans to a watch shop in Berlin. What was probably sent at that time?
The text on the back of the blue pin reads:
UNBEFUGTES TRAGEN WIRD BESTRAFT (IMPROPER CARRYING IS PUNISHED)
NUR IM DIENSTE ZU TRAGEN (ONLY TO BE WORN AT LABOR)
WEITERGABE VERBOTEN (PASSING ON FORBIDDEN)
Presumably, these badges served as a kind of ID card.
A shop display made of tin.
Various display units in printed cardboard.
Fourniture are spare parts that have been supplied by fourniture companies or by Junghans itself. For this purpose, there have been a variety of packages and boxes in which these parts were arrayed.
