Introducing: The Junghans Max Bill Automatic 'Soft Gold' Editions –

Snappy Take

At its center, this is a similar Max Bill watch that Junghans has been making for over 50 years. It has an unmistakable dial that comes with your decision of either long stick markers or smooth Arabic numerals, just a trace of lume, and huge loads of negative space. The refreshes are to the shading plan, with the case getting a delicate, semi-matte gold PVD treatment and the dial getting an inconspicuous dark shading that keeps the differentiation low and the stylish factor high.

Why This Watch Matters

There’s not actually a ton that is new here, but rather it’s ideal to see Junghans proceed to effectively emphasize on the exemplary Max Bill plan. I’ve said it commonly previously; any time you begin meddling with an adored plan you hazard demolishing it out and out. They’ve evaded that here by miles and the delicate shading range matches consummately with the spotless lines of the original.

Introductory Thoughts

I’ve been a long-lasting fanatic of the Max Bill watches ( I know I’m in good company there ) and I think these new models are incredible increases to the assortment. While I for one favor the immaculateness of the hand-twisted models without the date window, a programmed with date is certainly more shopper amicable. The combination of the gold and dark is truly exquisite and I could see both of these models filling in as pleasant, contemporary dress watches that will not interfere with you four or five figures.
