This special edition of the Max Bill Chronoscope was created to honor the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus school. One of the most influential institutions of art, architecture and design of the 20th century, the Bauhaus school holds special significance for the Max Bill watches as that is where the eponymous designer was trained. The watch is then a limited edition of 1,000 units worldwide, and takes its unique coloration from the school itself, with cues like the red date window alluding to the red door of the Bauhaus. There is also a special case back, with an illustration of the school. 

With the Max Bill watches the play of line, form and tone creates pieces that are near perfect examples of what the everyday watch should be. Effortlessly stylish with authentic vintage flair, highly legible at all times, modest on the wrist, yet can start a conversation. They are perfect for the office, a dinner with the relatives or a casual jaunt around town. They also exude German-made quality with refined details like curved hands and impossibly thin bezels.

The idea of adding a chronograph complication to such perfectly stripped down watches as the Max Bills seems like a truly daunting task, yet Junghans pulled it off without a hitch. Featuring the J880.2 caliber which is based on the venerable Valjoux 7750, Junghans dropped the active seconds sub-dial at nine for clean, symmetrical layouts across the series. The movement is automatic and features 25-jewels, stopwatch functionality, date, 42-hour power reserve and hacking seconds (the second hand stops when the crown is pulled out).

About Junghans

Since 1861, the town of Schramberg, Germany, nestled sleepily in the Black Forest, has been home to one of the greatest names in German watchmaking: Junghans. For over a century and a half, the brand has produced a stunning array of watches and clocks for almost every conceivable application, from egg timers to cockpit clocks for Bf-109 fighter aircraft, but today their collection is comprised mostly of a few lines of clean, design-oriented timepieces.

Junghans’ style trends toward sleek minimalism, with a healthy dose of mid-century style to keep things unique and interesting. This shines through especially well in their Meister Pilot series, with a one of a kind scalloped rotating bezel based on the pilot’s chronographs Junghans supplied to the newly reforming German air force, in the 1950s. The real star of the show for Junghans, however, is the Max Bill series, named after the eponymous Bauhaus designer.
