Junghans Honors Bauhaus With An Artful Minimalist Chronograph

Category: Style

Germany’s iconic Bauhaus art school is turning 100 this year, and, amidst an onslaught of celebratory collaborations, projects, and releases, a few of the country’s most influential watchmakers have decided to honor the prodigious institution. Of the most prolific, Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope 100 is an aesthetically-astute standout.

The Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope 100 Jahre Bauhaus watch was originally designed by none other than esteemed graduate Max Bill, who’s work favored a simple but supple design philosophy, aesthetic definition, and minimalist characteristics above all else. His iconic stylings became an illustrative trademark of the aptly named Bauhaus watch, eventually becoming a staple in many a man’s functional wardrobes. For the institution’s 100th anniversary, German watchmaker Junghans has decided to pay homage to the main building of Bauhaus, located in Dessau. A 40-millimeter steel case, white dial, and anthracite PVD coating give the Chronoscope a look all its own, while red accents on the watch’s hands (and date wheel) reminisce the school’s uniformly-hued doorways. On the rear, an illustration of the building gives way to the watch’s Valjoux 7750 automatic movement, which can be seen through the landmark’s translucent windows. The Max Bill Chronoscope 100 Bauhaus watch is limited to just 1,000 examples and is expected to sell for $2,295.
