Yesterday, we started looking at the Junkers 6050-5, and covered some of the more striking aspects to the piece, and noted the modern feel to it – that’s where we’ll pick things up today.

Modernity, in watches, is generally noted in the case size.  Here, it measures in at a reasonable 40mm in diameter, and houses an ETA 2824-2 (which means we have a date display at 3 o’clock).  And, it does carry a 5 ATM water resistance rating, though the crown does not screw down.  So, no swimming with this one!

On the aesthetics, I really liked what Junkers did.  With brown leather strap and cream dial, it’s showing up in a palette that you really don’t see a lot of dress watches in (at least, not for what I’ve featured on these pages).  They’ve also included some nice lume on the dial – it’s not so distracting in regular light, but when it gets dark, the little dots light up so you can still tell the time.

All told, I really liked this piece.  The movement is a solid, known quantity, and the styling is a nice break from the norm.  If you’re in agreement, you can head over to Long Island Watch and make one your own for $549.


If you do order from them, you’ll get a nice little bonus in the form of a great polishing cloth.  Fortunately for you, they’ve decided to pass some along for us to give away!
If you’d like one of these cloths (think microfiber, but softer), register your email address at and then comment below.  We’ll pick seven entries and send them along to the lucky winners.

You’ve got until the end of the week, so don’t delay!

  1. Registered. A cloth would be great. Gotta keep the watches shiny! I’m not huge on dress watches, but that junkers is pretty sharp and well priced!

  2. Awesome looking watch, I like the simplicity and natural look. Would have to keep it bright and shiny with a nice cloth.

  3. I’ve always wondered about the quality of these watches, thanks for the review, keep up the great work!

  4. Registered? yes! Do I love the watch? Except for the non-screwdown crown, yes! Overall, it’s got a really nice vintage feel to it…(the cloth, not the watch…kidding!Of course the watch!!!!!!!)
