Max Bill Chronoscope by Junghans Automatic Chronograph - Black Strap/Black Dial
The Max Bill design watch is remains true to form of the original Max Bill design watches dating from the 1950’s. Almost nothing 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. It has got a 25 jeweled Swiss made Valjoux 7750 automatic movement. The case is all stainless steel which is highly polished, and slender and sleek in deign. It has a solid steel snap on case back which bears Max Bill’s signature. The dial is black with minute markings and hour markings giving a very minimalist feel to it. Long flowing lines seem to be the main design influence, therefore the hour markers and hands are long.
The long hands touch the correct points where the hour hand tips the hour marks, the minute hand touches the minute marks numbers, and the central sweep second hand follows the same line as the minute hand, just tipping the minute/second marks as it sweeps past them. The hands are luminous filled, with double luminous dot at the 12 position, and single luminous dots at the 3, 6 and 9 position. Also has minimally marked sub dials at the 12 and 6 positions. The pushers are extended pump style pushers. Date at the 3 position. Has an attractive convex highly domed plexi glass acrylic crystal, and domed case back, giving it an elliptical, “flying saucer” shape which at some angles makes the dial appear slightly curved, creating an appealing effect. It comes on a good quality black leather strap with polished steel pin buckle.
