Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope Ref. 027/4502.04 steel automatic chronograph
This Junghans Chronoscope model is an excellent adaptation of Max Bill’s original watch design. The clean and stark silvered dial has a matt finish and combination Arabic/baton indexes. Two sub counters to the dial record hours and minutes. The stylised Arabic numerals are a Max Bill design. Pressing the upper pusher starts and stops the chronograph, the lower pusher resets. An aperture at 3 o’clock displays the date and there is quick adjustment for this indication 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.
