* The Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope 100 Jahre Bauhaus is a brand new limited edition release of 1000 pieces to celebrate 100 years of the Bauhaus teachings. The case and dial takes inspiration from the famous Bauhaus building in Dessau - with red hands and matching date window, mimicking the red door at the front of the building. The anthracite grey case, made from PVD coated stainless steel with grey calf strap is used effectively to reflect the general colour palette of the building and is also a nod to the extensive use of concrete used in Bauhaus architecture.

 

* The case back is engraved with an image of the Bauhaus Dessau building, including red door, but the windows of the building are actually transparent, allowing you to see the J880.2 automatic chronograph movement inside. With classic domed plexi-glass and simple, uncluttered design, the Max Bill Chronoscope 100 Jahre Bauhaus perfectly captures the modernist thinkings of the Bauhaus teachings.

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 wall clocks and wristwatches he created for Junghans, which remain practically unchanged today.

Rarely has the interplay of hours and minutes been represented more precisely and more simply than in the case of the timepieces created by Max Bill, which is why these watches now also reside in the world’s most preeminent design museum “The Museum of Modern Art”

When Max Bill designed his legendary wristwatches in 1961, he laid the cornerstone for what was to become one of the most enduring design classics in modern art.
