The time and the day and the date and not a micron of superfluous design. This is the same essential design first launched in 1961 from Junghans under the helm of Bauhaus alum Max Bill. Featuring trademark typography and ever-mimicked perfect proportions, this recent release further honors the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus with an exhibition case back, etched in relief of the original building, allowing for view of the internal automatic movement. Vibrant red date and hands are a fresh nod to modern design's most effective pioneers.
Max Bill was one of the most unusual artists of our time. Acknowledged as a universal genius, he worked as an architect, painter, sculptor and product designer and has left behind an extensive portfolio of creations. This includes one of the most fascinating watch series ever designed – the clocks and wristwatches he created for Junghans – and which remain practically unchanged today.

About the Designer:
Founded in 1861 by Erhard Junghans, and his brother-in-law, Jakob Zeller-Tobler, Junghans became one of Europe's biggest watch and clock manufacturers and is still renowned for creating some of the most meticulously made timepieces. Junghans strives to bring together traditional workmanship and state-of-the-art technology in every watch they create.
