New Releases Watches

Introducing: Junghans Max Bill Edition Set 2020 Watches

Junghans Max Bill Edition Set 2020

Don’t adjust your screens, the image above is not a negative. It is in fact the latest limited edition to come out of minimalist German watch brand Junghans. The Max Bill Edition Set is taking Junghans over to the dark side by utilising the Bauhaus artist’s monochromatic colour scheme. 

This limited edition set will only be produced 222 times with two timepieces inceded in the box. A 34mm automatic time and date version (Kleine Automatic) and a 40mm  chronograph (Chronoscope), both with deep matte black cases and dials that seem to suck light in to them allowing the fine white numerals to stand out brilliantly in contrast.

The numerals are done in a classic Max Bill typeface that keeps true to the minimalistic feel while providing brilliant clarity and juxtaposition on a watch that would otherwise disappear when the lights are dimmed.

And if all that juxtaposing isn’t enough for you they both come on white leather straps, which you don’t see very often, and can be swapped out for more conventional black calf leather with a flick of the quick release system. 

Junghans Max Bill Edition Set 2020

These watches have been made for those who know and love Junghans and what they do as well as those who have a high appreciation for Max Bill and the rest of the Bauhaus school. Pair with your most plain roll neck and work boots to complete the look of an architect out for coffee after designing the next great London townhouse.
