Junghans Max Bill Quartz Watch
Who was Max Bill?
The Junghans Max Bill Quartz Watch takes it’s name from one of the most extraordinary designers of the last century. An architect, sculptor and product designer, Max Bill 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 ensured that the watches were at the cutting edge of technology. Max Bill is 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.
Max Bill Quartz
Firstly, the Max Bill Quartz has a 38mm stainless steel case with a large dial opening so you see less of the bezel and more of the dial. Since the time is the most important feature of any watch, Max Bill deliberately pared the case back to it’s simplest form.
Secondly, the domed hard plexiglass accentuates the historical charm of the watch. Coated with sicralan to ensure scratch-resistance, it is practical too. Additionally, the minimalist dial is matt white with black printed arabic hour markers arranged centrally with the minutes displayed on the outer edge. Furthermore, these rounded numerals were specially created by Max Bill and are a strong part of the DNA of the collection. Printed minute markers also give the watch the graphic look which is so typical of the Max Bill line.
Moreover, the hands are deliberately slim designed with functionality and accuracy in mind. Also, the hour and minute hands as well as the quarter markers on the dial are coated with a luminous Super-Luminova substance to ensure that the dial can be read in dim light.
Finally, a sand leather strap adds the finishing touch and secures to the wrist with a stainless steel pin buckle.
