Junghans max bill Kleine Automatic

German watch brand Junghans presents max bill Kleine Automatic, a new timepiece inspired by the natural influences like colours, forms and textures. The puristic design of the watch is based on original concepts from Max Bill, who regarded his creations as “embodiments of the environment”.

The dimensions of the new Kleine Automatic watch are inspired from the initial models of the max bill series. For the very first time, Junghans are offering an automatic version with a diameter of 34 millimetres, precisely the size of the original from 1961. Originally designed as a men’s watch with hand-winding movement, the new Kleine Automatic will appeal equally to enthusiasts of the original design from Max Bill who prefer the convenience of automatic winding.

The matt finish stainless steel case enhances the focus on readability of the dial with indices. Even the materials which make up the watch were selected with environmental influences in mind. For example, the straps in natural hues are produced from recycled PET material and combine with the ergonomic domed case back to provide a pleasantly light wear comfort.

In addition to the Kleine Automatic, there are also versions of the max bill Damen available with quartz movement, as well as 38 millimetre Automatic versions in the new natural hues.
