Product Details


Function and Form

This version of the Max Bill automatic winding watch is nearly identical to the version with indices, but adds Arabic numerals to the dial. This allows the user to quickly discern the time at a glance while simultaneously maintaining all of the Bauhaus design elements that make these watches as functional as they are attractive.

As with the non-date version of this watch, it offers clean and simple lines for a design that remains beautiful, but includes a date window at the 3 o’clock position for added functionality in day-to-day wear.

The watch features the Junghans J800.1 automatic movement, which is based upon the ETA 2824 and includes Incabloc shock protection. The slim-profile 38 mm stainless steel case features a polished finish for everyday versatility, and as an added bonus the solid steel case back includes the engraved signature of Max Bill himself.

The dial is a crisp white/silver color and is slightly domed, providing additional depth for the elegantly thin and curved hands. The hands and appliques also feature SuperLuminova for easy viewing in low-light situations.

A highly domed plexiglass crystal provides a vintage look while also offering the benefits of modern technology. The domed nature of the crystal refracts light in the same manner as vintage acrylic crystals for a unique illuminating effect.

The SICRALAN® MRL UV coating method was developed for suppliers to the automotive industry. This transparent coating causes a functional and aesthetic value: increased scratch resistance, improved UV and chemical resistance and a more intense deep gloss of the plexiglass.

The watch is equipped with a black calf skin strap with black stitching and features a stainless steel tang buckle.

Absolutely Satisfied

Comments about this watch: I am totally fine with this watch. It's nice looking. The leather strap is in a high quality. Although most people will complain about its front crystal not sapphire, I'm pretty sure it's really tough.

A Classic Revisited

"A Classic Revisited"

Comments about this watch: This is one of the few times that a watch company went back into their archives and successfully updated a classic design. They increased the size slightly but thankfully did not feel the need to compete with the 42mm and larger models. The 38mm is a sane size for this watch; it wears well because of the thin bezel.

Furthermore, it feels like a vintage watch. It reminds me of the days where you actually had to take care of your watch because it was a finely crafted machine and was never meant to be bulletproof. It has a vintage feel. On there other hand, it has a workhorse movement and quick set date, in fact a date at all as a small sacrifice to the changing times.

This watch is not for everyone, but it is a cherished piece in my collection.Sometimes, there are thing from our past that are destined to be admired forever because of their quintessential design, this watch is one of them.
