The Max Bill line by Junghans are truly iconic timepieces that have remained largely unchanged since their debut in the 1950’s. The eponymous designer and architect was trained in the famous Bauhaus school in Dessau, Germany where he honed an undeniable skill at creating minimal, modern works that manage to be as refreshing today as they were at their inception.
The 12 inch wall clocks are perhaps the purest expression of Max Bill’s vision. A Clean white dial with polished hands is housed in a brushed aluminum cylinder for a tasteful, minimal appearance. Featuring an inner track of hour numerals in Max Bill’s iconic typeface, encircled by a thin, graceful index of lines and numerals for the minutes. Stoic and sophisticated, the Max Bill clocks add refinement and character to any space. Featuring German-made quartz movements, they are highly reliable time-keepers as well.

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.
