From September 25th - 27th a special preview of the new Meister Pilot watch planned for 2016 was held at the site of the longstanding watch company. Guests received an in-depth insight into the company during an exclusive tour of the plant, as well as historic buildings that are not usually open to the public. To enjoy a flight over Schramberg in historic propeller planes, guests were first driven to the nearby airfield in extraordinary classic cars belonging to the Steim car collection. The terrace building of the watch factory in the idyllic Black Forest could subsequently be admired from a completely new, bird's eye perspective. In the evening, guests and partners from around the world had the opportunity to admire the event model of the new Meister Pilot. "The special preview event in Schramberg is a further milestone for us in the development and internationalisation of the brand," says Matthias Stotz, Managing Director of Uhrenfabrik Junghans.
