The esteemed German watch brand Junghans which started to produce watches in 1927 is perhaps best known for their Max Bill line of watches. The Bauhaus schooled Swiss artist, architect and industrial designer Max Bill designed some truly iconic clocks and watches for the company in the 1950's.
The simplicity of the dial and the precise proportions of the case makes this a very elegant timepiece. The balanced dial with the Max Bill typeface of the Arabic numerals is a gorgeous manifestation of one of the Bauhaus design philosophy. Just look at that number 4!
The watch is in very good original used condition. The original black dial and handset are perfect. The crystal shows some minor scratches from normal wear which is perfectly normal on an acrylic crystal and can easily be polished out. The stainless steel case has very minor signs of wear, most noticeable on the case back where there are signs of normal use
Best of all, the watch comes on a beautiful deep brown genuine crocodile strap which is extremely lightly used and full of lustre.
The ETA based movement has 25 jewels and is high-beat at 28,8000 ticks per hour , rendering a very smooth sweep of the second hand.
This watch comes in a practical padded and zipped travel case. We sell this watch on behalf of a customer and can for this reason not give a one-year warranty but as always, the watch may be returned for a refund within a 14 day period.
