Max Bill Mega Solar

New for 2020, the Junghans Max Bill Mega Solar Watch takes the iconic Max Bill design and creates a timepiece with the latest generation of solar powered radio-controlled movements.

One of the most extraordinary designers of the last century, Max Bill was an architect, sculptor and product designer who studied at the Bauhaus in Dessau. His association with Junghans began in the 1950’s when he was commissioned to design a kitchen clock for the company. In 1961, Max Bill started to design purist watches for the brand and Junghans in turn, ensured that the watches were at the cutting edge of technology. Max Bill is acknowledged as one of Europe’s greatest timepiece designers. He constantly strove for clarity and precision in his designs. Today these same values are still evident and underpin the entire Max Bill collection from Junghans.

Radio-controlled solar-powered movement

Firstly, the Junghans Max Bill Mega Solar Watch is equipped with the latest J101.85 connected radio-controlled movement. The movement is an upgrade over the earlier Max Bill Mega (which has a quartz movement in a steel case). The new Max Bill Mega Solar has a titanium case, and is solar-powered. Furthermore, it will run for up to three years on a full charge. Moreover, the dial is the solar cell and also has a quick-charging function allowing it to go from flat to running after just eight minutes of exposure to light. However, both generations of Max Bill Mega watches have the same principle function – radio-controlled timekeeping.

Junghans Mega Smartphone App

Radio-controlled watches receive a time signal via a radio transmitter, which means they can receive the signal anywhere a radio signal will reach, unlike GPS watches that can only sync outdoors. However, because radio reception is largely national, historically Junghans’ radio-controlled watches worked in Europe (DCF77), United Kingdom (MSF), United States (WWVB), and Japan (JJY40 and JJY60). The new Max Bill Mega Solar only functions in those countries or regions on radio-control, but thanks to the recently developed Junghans Mega smartphone app, the watch will work anywhere in the world. Available for both iOS and Android, the smartphone app broadcasts a time signal that synchronises the watch within “less than 30 seconds on average” according to Junghans. Even within synchronisation to either smartphone or radio signals, the watch will run within eight seconds a year as an ordinary, high-precision quartz watch.

Titanium Case and Leather Strap

The Junghans Max Bill MEGA Solar Watch has a titanium case. In a matt sandblasted finish, it is feather light and comfortable to wear. Furthermore, a domed hard plexiglass accentuates the historical charm of the watch. Additionally, it is coated with sicralan to ensure scratch-resistance. The minimalist dial is white with printed hour and minute markers. Consequently, the watch has the graphic look which is so typical of the max bill collection. Finally, a grey leather strap adds the finishing touch. Discover more about Junghans here.
