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. A half century's renown feels immediately warranted when fastening the strap of this clean lined timepiece. This combination of artistry and mid-century design features a reliable quartz movement and bright white face in polished steel case with espresso leather band.
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.
The crystal features SICRALAN MRL UV coating, applied with a method developed for suppliers to the automotive industry. This transparent coating causes a functional and aesthetic value: increased scratch resistance, improved UV and chemical resistance and a more intense deep gloss of the plexiglass.
