Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope Ref. 027/4500.49 steel automatic chronograph
This Junghans Chronoscope model has a rich black glossy dial. The dial makes full use of Max Bill’s specially designed Arabic numerals which, like the hour and minute hands, are painted with luminescent Super Luminova. Pressing the upper pusher starts and stops the chronograph, the lower pusher resets. A twin aperture at 3 o’clock displays the day of the week and date and there is quick adjustment for the calendar indications via the crown. A mechanical automatically wound watch, this Chronoscope will keep itself powered while you’re wearing it.
Produced by Junghans in consultation with the heirs of the designer and the Max, Binia & Jakob Bill Foundation. Head over to our Journal where you’ll find a brief potted history of Max Bill together with pictures of the man himself and some of his creations.
