The Bauhaus school was founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius in Dessau, Germany. Perhaps the most influential school of art, design, and craft in the 20th century, the school aimed to unite the areas of study in a new approach under the guiding principle of “form follows function.” The result was a generation of artists, architects, and designers who redefined their disciplines. One example of a student of the Bauhaus whose work exemplifies the school's interdisciplinary methods was Max Bill, the famed designer of Junghan’s most iconic watches.
For the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus school, Junghans has created a limited-edition Max Bill Chronoscope, designed to reflect the look of the historic school itself. This edition of 1,000 pieces features a matte anthracite case and gray strap, speaking to the subtle exterior of the building while the red date window and hand fill hint at its bright red door. On the case back is a line drawing of the facility, where the windows of the building allow a view of the movement within the watch. The unique colorway stands apart from others in the collection, simultaneously preserving its clean, minimalist style, while adding a distinctive flair.
We are pleased to be able to offer a limited quantity of the Max Bill Chronoscope 100 Jahre Bauhaus for pre order starting now, shipping in October for $2,295. Available here while supplies last
