Junghans Black Max Bill Chronoscope Automatic (Ref. Nr. 027/4601.00) Men's Watch with Black Dial and Black Leather Strap.
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.
