Junghans Watch : Max Bill Chronoscope Watch
Black Leather Strap with White Dial

Designed by Max Bill
Made by Junghans Germany

Chronoscope White Max Bill Mens Watch - Junghans 027/4600.00. A classic white-dial watch with black leather strap. Sophistication and style are encapsulated in a watch of understated elegance; crisp, clean and tailored to be always in style. One of our most beautiful Chronograph Men's Watches. The watch that gave birth to timeless style celebrates its 50th anniversary. Max Bill designed the legendary Chronoscope watch in 1962 for Junghans. Opting for a minimal appearance, Max Bill created a watch that was styled like a work of minimalist architecture. Perhaps not surprisingly since Max Bill was closely connected to the master of less-is-more, Mies van der Rohe, in his early years at the Bauhaus. After half a century, the Chronoscope remains one of the few watches that have withstood the test of time remarkably well. A fine watch, refreshingly free from any distracting bells & whistles. The beautiful minimalist Junghans Chronoscope is truly in a class of its own. Max Bill designed it so all elements effortlessly blend together: design, craftsmanship, quality and materials. When it comes to timeless style, the Junghans Chronoscope remains unrivaled to this day. The Chronoscope is one of the finest men's watches around.

Max Bill was an architect, painter, sculptor, educationalist, writer, in short, a 'universal creator'. Swiss-born German artist, Max Bill, a product of the Bauhaus generation, pupil of Walter Gropius and kindred spirit of Josef Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Le Corbusier and Mies Van der Rohe was a virtuoso designer and creative artist, as his diverse activities as a painter, architect, sculptor, teacher, and designer amply demonstrate. His work is characterized by a clarity of design and precise proportions which are unrivaled to this day. The work of Max Bill was a continuous balancing act between free art and applied art, between severe, reduced forms and flowing natural ones, between philosophical thinking and practical application. Examining the subject of 'time' was a fascinating challenge for Max Bill, and one that occupied him for decades. A remarkable example of his work is his beautiful Chronoscope watch which he designed for Junghans in 1962.
