Junghans Women’s Max Bill Watch
The Junghans Women’s Max Bill Watch embodies minimalist, Bauhaus chic.
Who was Max Bill?
Max Bill was one of the most distinctive designers of the last century. An architect, sculptor and product designer, he 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.
Case, Dial, Hands
Firstly, the Max Bill Quartz has a 32.7mm PVD coated 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, at 32.7mm, the case size is on the large side for a women’s watch. This is very much on-trend and enables easy reading at a glance.
Furthermore, a domed hard plexiglass accentuates the historical charm of the watch. Coated with sicralan to ensure scratch-resistance, it is practical too. Moreover, the minimalist dial is silver plated in a soft grey finish with black printed index hour markers and minute track. Consequently, the printed dial gives the watch the graphic look which is so typical of the max bill line. Also, the hour markers are also taken to the extreme outer edge of the dial which draws the eye to the time. The hands are deliberately slim designed with functionality and accuracy in mind. 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 grey leather strap adds the finishing touch. In a smooth finish, it is free of stitching to create a clean aesthetic.
