In celebration of and collaboration with the FIS Nordic World Ski Championship, German watch manufacturers Junghans have released two sporting timepieces, the 1972 Competition FIS Edition Lemon and the 1972 Chronoscope Quarz Edition FIS Lemon. Taking place from February 21st to March 5th, the 54th edition of the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships is set to take place in Planica, Slovenia. For the third year in a row, Junghans stands as the Official Timing Partner of the event, and returns with two limited edition watches as equally captivating as the competition itself.
The intricate designs of the watches themselves are fit for skiers and spectators alike. With a tachymeter scale, the 1972 Competition FIS Edition Lemon features a chronograph that both allows you to determine the time required for a track selection as well as the speed at which it was completed. The 1972 Chronoscope allows for fans to keep track of run times, with its unidirectional turning bezel and stop function accurate to one fifth of a second.
This partnership is one of admiration, and aligns itself with the core values of the brand. Thomas Fiedler, Head of Marketing at Junghans shares, “Whether in cross-country skiing, ski jumping or Nordic combined, the fight for medals in winter sports combines two things that are integral parts of the Junghans DNA: The decisive role played by time, and the firmly anchored tradition of winter sports in our home, the Black Forest.”
