Junghans Max Bill

Junghans Max Bill

Max Bill was one of the most unusual artists of our time. Acknowledged as an universal genius, he worked as an architect, painter, sculptor and product designer and has left behind an extensive portfolio of creations.

This includes one of the most fascinating watch series ever designed – the clocks and wristwatches he created for Junghans – and which remain practically unchanged today.

As a Bauhaus student of Walter Gropius, he intuitively understood how to apply the pursuit of constructive clarity and precise proportions to his work.


The Junghans Max Bill is a true gentleman's watch. It's perfectly elegant, timeless and understated. The video below, from The Urban Gentry, dives into the story behind this great peace of horological history.
