Touchy feely

Fall in love with the soft, felt strap of this Max Bill Quartz watch from Junghans.  In a light grey tone, it says comfort and elegance. The dark grey typographical dial retains the iconic pared back look of the Max Bill line.

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.

The max bill Quartz has a 32.7mm 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. The case size is on the large side for a women’s watch which is very much on-trend and enables easy reading at a glance.

The domed hard plexiglass accentuates the historical charm of the watch. Coated with sicralan to ensure scratch-resistance, it is practical too. Underneath, the minimalist dial is grey with the rounded typography that was specially created by Max Bill and gives the watch its iconic look. The hours are printed in white and are arranged around the centre of the dial with the printed minute track around the outer edge.

The hands are deliberately slim designed with functionality and accuracy in mind. To ensure precision, the pointed end of the minute hand lines up exactly with the printed minute track. 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.

The leather strap has a grey felt upper and is smooth and free of stitching to create a clean aesthetic.
