Overview

Design by Bill Max, 1962.
Made in Germany by Junghans.

Junghans' Max Bill Manual Wrist Watch is close to perfect in its graphic balance and clarity. Designed by Max Bill, famed designer and architect, this watch successfully illustrates meticulous craftsmanship and a classic design that will never go out of style. Those who are tired of scratched watch cases will appreciate its durable high domed hardened plexiglass crystal face. Furthermore, the calf leather wrist strap feels like silk against the skin.

Not every watch keeps accurate time, but this one will not let you down. Its mechanical Swiss hand winding movement ETA-2801-2 (17 jewels, 28.800 vibrations per hour) keeps you from running late. For an exceptional wrist watch with a striking presence, look no further than the Max Bill Manual Wrist Watch. Select from a White Face/Black Band, White Face/Tan Band or Black Face/Black Band.

Max Bill

Designer: Max Bill

Max Bill (1908-1994) was a prolific architect, graphic designer and sculptor. Born over a century ago, he was first a silversmith. Chancing a lecture by LeCorbusier, Max Bill was inspired to study architecture. As a student at the Bauhaus and practitioner of the modern style, he balanced free and applied arts, philosophical thinking and practical application. A champion of the sans serif script, Max Bill was also a publicist, designing letterhead, logos and posters. He taught art and design by emphasizing studio practice and encouraging artists to apply their ideas to the manufacturing industry.

From 1944 onwards he was active as a product designer. He founded and built a college of design at Ulm which influenced German post-war designers including Dieter Rams. It was during this period that Max Bill undertook a more philosophical study of time and his 1957 Wall clock and 1962 Chronoscope are culminations of this work. Later in life, he explored sculpture and painting, became a member of the Swiss parliament and continued his passion of teaching environmental design. Max Bill's life bridged every decade of the 20th century and left a holistic mark in the important years of modern Swiss and international design.

Manufacturer: Junghans

Junghans: A watch making company that has kept up with the times.

In 1861, Junghans watch factory opened its doors in Schramberg, Germany. Businessman Erhard Junghans and his bother-in-law, Jakob Zeller, set out to specialize in manufacturing individual parts for watch production. Their enterprise became famous for its outstanding quality. This success was credited to their staff of master watchmakers. Slowly, a firm foundation was laid for a complete watchmaking enterprise.

By 1903, Junghans had grown into the world's largest watch factory. Despite its size, quality and craftsmanship never suffered. Its new owner, Arthur Junghans, made sure the company provided customers with the very best. He traveled to the United States and studied the latest in watch technology. During his tenure, the company patented no less than 300 inventions.

Throughout Junghans’ history, the company suffered from setbacks and tragedies such as the dismantling of the factory during WWII. However, their commitment to exceptional watch production never diminished. Today, customers can count on the quality of their watches. Junghans combines the latest modern technology with old-world craftsmanship. The result is a product that people can trust. When you see the Junghans' brand, you know that you are not only buying a watch. You are buying a piece of watchmaking history.
