Max Bill was a Swiss architect, artist, painter and designer that accumulated awards along with professions and hobbies. Originally a student of Bauhaus theory, Bill’s work in industrial design is “characterized by a clarity of design and precise proportions.” This isn’t Art History class, so we’ll get to the point. Junghans is Germany’s largest watch and clock manufacturer, and Bill began designing clocks and watches for them in the 1950s. The Max Bill Chronoscope for Junghans was originally designed in 1962 and has remained largely unchanged since then. For 2015, things are evolving a bit. Contrasting numerals on the watch face and the day addition to the day/date at 3 o’clock are the most noticeable changes, but there’s also a modified Valjoux 7750 movement and a larger 38mm case. Thankfully, the domed lens, slim case and slim leather strap have been left untouched, except for the color of the leather itself.
