Comments about the data
Timepieces (even the many from Junghans) were always only a minor part of the Diehl Group, although the only known to the public, mainly due to the formerly popular alarm clocks. Only one wristwatch-calibre family is known to be made by Diehl, the three variants of the Diehl 156. Already the successor family Diehl 157 consisted of down-graded Junghans calibres.
