The Blue Company


“To create objects in such a way that they serve people in the best, longest, and most beautiful way possible.” max bill designed a series of timepieces for Junghans based on this idea, which is still relevant today, more than six decades later. In particular, Junghans kept the clocks’ exterior design essentially unchanged while constantly expanding their functionality. By doing this, Junghans is proving that the combination of functionality, endurance, and beauty is more important today than ever with the next version of the series, the max bill MEGA Solar.


The max bill MEGA Solar combines their timeless design with state-of-the-art timekeeping technology, drawing its energy from the sun as an inexhaustible source. Hidden beneath the translucent dial, a curved solar cell powers the precise and highly efficient, multi-frequency, radio-controlled movement inside the watch. Developed and manufactured in Schramberg, the app-connected technology with automatic adjustment for daylight saving time, a perpetual calendar, and an easy time-zone setting. Which can be done via the crown or with a smartphone, ensuring limitless timekeeping convenience. Thanks to their intelligent resource management, the max bill MEGA Solar also has a power reserve of up to three years in the dark.


The innovative features seamlessly blend in with a design that remains modern at all times. Or to put it in the words of max bill: A watch design “As far removed as possible from any fashion. as timeless as can be conceived without forgetting the time.” The dial design of the three-hand watch follows clear logic and not only features the typography especially designed by max bill, but also illustrates his keen eye for harmonious proportions. The colour combination of a fine sand-gold tone and delicate grey puts the hands – and thus time itself – elegantly in focus. Making a colourful statement for an environmentally friendly time, whilst the other model comes with a stainless-steel case and a red strap made from recycled apple and vegan microfibre.


With a curved sapphire crystal and water resistance of up to 5 bar, the max bill MEGA Solar – true to the Bauhaus creed – offers high everyday usability and exceptional durability. Printed on the inside of the glass case back, a sun motif highlights the solar-powered concept of the watch and attests to its all-around sustainability. An object that serves best, longest, and most beautifully: The max bill MEGA Solar is designed sustainably – as a matter of principle.
