Max Bill is a product of the Bauhaus generation, pupil of Walter Gropius and kindred spirit of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe. Max Bill 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 clarity of design and precise proportions, which are unrivalled to this day. Max Bill by Junghans is available in the form of wristwatches and wall clocks wherever clocks, watches, and good design are to be found.
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 a wall clock he designed for Junghans in 1956/57. Rarely has the interplay of hour and minute been portrayed in a more stylized and elegantly simple way than with this clock, which can be seen today in the world’s most important design museum, The Museum of Modern Art.
In 1962, Max Bill created mechanical wristwatches for Junghans – impressive timepieces, for not only their aesthetic design, but also their precision. These exceptional and exclusive models have been revived by Junghans with their original Max Bill Design.
The Max Bill Stainless Steel watch is marked by its classic design. The watch comes with a display with a white or black face in your choice of numbers or lines. You have a choice of a black, tan, or gray band (black face only). The convex face gives it a highly sophisticated design and impresses the most discerning of buyers.
