Back in 1961, Bauhaus designer Max Bill linked up with German watchmaker Junghans to create the max bill line of minimalist wristwatches. In the six decades since, the ever-expanding line has become an icon of Bauhaus design, and now Junghans is celebrating the achievement with a special 60th-anniversary three-watch collection.
The Junghans max bill Edition Set 60 includes three similar yet wildly different expressions of the max bill design language. The purest of the trio is the simple three-hander automatic version with date. Coming in a bit more complicated and unorthodox is the automatic regulator, which incorporates three separate displays for the hours, minutes, and seconds and yet remains minimalist in nature. Finally, there’s the MEGA quartz version that looks toward the future with its radio-controlled, app-connected movement. All three timepieces come in at 38mm in anthracite PVD-treated stainless steel with commemorative casebacks and sapphire crystals, and they ship in a special presentation box. The set is limited to 1,060 units and is priced at $4,900.
