Max Bill by Junghans - Hand Wound Wristwatch
The Max Bill design watch is made true to form of the original Max Bill design watches dating from the 1950’s. Very little has altered apart from the fact that it is constructed today from modern materials in a modern environment, and of course with a modern movement. These factors make for an altogether more accurate, stronger and more reliable wristwatch. It is a classical design and looks like it has stepped right of the decade from which it was first introduced – and many watches standards were set by designs like this one. This particular model though has a slightly more practical look to it with the slightly bolder numbers against the dark dial. It has got a 17 jewelled Swiss made ETA 2801 hand wound movement. The case is polished stainless which is slender and sleek in deign. It has a solid steel snap on case back which bears Max Bill’s signature.
The dial is polished black. The numbers are printed in white in a font reminiscent of the 50’s designs. The minute markings are printed in silver. It has long luminous filled hands, and the hands correctly touch the relevant hour and minute marks on the dial making for precise reading. The central sweep second hand also sweeps through the minute/second hands marks. Has an attractive convex highly domed plexi glass acrylic crystal, which at some angles makes the dial appear slightly curved, creating an appealing effect. It comes on a good quality black colour leather strap with matching polished steel pin buckle.
