Junghans Max Bill History and Design Details

The beginning of Junghans’ story dates back to 1861 in Schramberg, Germany. The brand, which was founded by Erhard Junghans and Jakob Zeller-Tobler, started as a manufacturer of clock components. Within the span of 5 years, they also began producing their own watches, eventually growing to become the globally recognized brand that it is today. 

The Junghans Max Bill collection was brought to life when the German brand approached one of the most influential Swiss graphic designers, Max Bill, back in the 1950s. By that time, Junghans already had numerous milestones and achievements to back them up. The collaboration resulted in a beautiful wall clock that involved Bauhaus elements. This project was so well-received that Junghans and Max Bill proceeded to make a whole range of wristwatches following the same design. This cemented Max Bill’s name in horology and further enhanced Junghans’ reputation as well. 

In terms of design details, Max Bill models generally possess similar structures and components. For example, these German watches make use of the minimalistic elements such as a slightly rounded typeface, thin indices, slim hands, and neutral dial colors. The whole concept of this range has always revolved around incorporating simple and logical elements with artistic techniques. 

5 Reasons Why You Should Buy a Junghans Max Bill Watch

  1. 1. Made by a True Artist. One of the things that makes this collection so interesting is how Max Bill’s artistic philosophy is still clearly present in every piece today. Not only is the Junghans Max Bill line inspired by him, but the Swiss artist actually took part in the design process. Getting your hands on this watch is almost like owning a fully functional art piece from Max Bill himself. 
  2. 2. Chic Minimalism. Minimalism comes in all forms and interpretations. For example, some choose to highlight the essential elements while others use striking details amidst basic layouts. When it comes to the Junghans Max Bill collection, the brand did an excellent job in using minimalist components in a smart and sophisticated manner. From the dial colors to the font used, each detail was logically placed, resulting in a well-crafted and versatile watch. 
  3. 3. Timeless Design. One of Junghans’ goals with the Max Bill collection was to create a watch that could transcend time. This means that, regardless of when it was created, a Max Bill watch will still be perceived as beautiful and stylish, both now and in the future. 
  4. 4. Lightweight. This bodes well for those who have a difficult time finding a comfortable watch. The Junghans Max Bill makes use of lightweight materials and thin movements which gives way for a more ergonomic feel. 
  5. 5. Reasonably Priced. A price range of $600 USD to $2,500 USD may seem quite intimidating and expensive but Junghans is one of the most recognized German brands out there. They have proven their competence in watchmaking, which can clearly be seen in this collection. Considering the level of artistry you get from Junghans’ excellent German craftsmanship, the Max Bill is certainly worth every penny. 

Junghans Max Bill: Art On Your Wrist 

There is no denying that the Junghans Max Bill series is minimalist through and through. However, the history behind it and its original designer shows that this collection is also a work of art. It draws inspiration from Bauhaus elements, which are relatively unique in the watchmaking world.
