The Max Bill watch


ABTR discusses the “”concrete Bauhaus” of watches, the Max Bill. “The ‘Max Bill watch’ as it is known is one of the 20th Century’s most famous watch designs. Clearly conceived by designer and architect Max Bills in Switzerland, the watch was a staple of goodness back when it was originally made in the 1960s. Since then you could buy versions of the watch in its pure form as made by German Junghans (who I believe is owned by Seiko). For 2010 Junghans offers up a more modern, but still retro version of this retro classic. There are three versions of the watches and most exciting is their more modern dimensions (save for the still small manually wound version).
