The natural colours, in the true size of the original, give the new Junghans max bill Kleine Automatic a unique feeling of balance and harmony.
Colours, forms and textures – nature has always been a source of immense fascination for humankind.
Since the beginning of time, it has served as a source of inspiration for literature, art and photography, and shapes our entire concept of beauty, harmony and logic.
The laws of nature were the inspiration for Junghans in their pursuit of the perfect colours for the new max bill Kleine Automatic.
The purist design of the watch is based on original concepts from the Bauhaus Designer, Max Bill, who regarded his creations as “embodiments of the environment”.
His works always follows two key aspects of the laws of nature: Logic and Symmetry.
This is nowhere more evident than in the extraordinarily articulate and balanced contours of the timepieces which he came to create.
The case-size for the Kleine Automatic is a return to the original max bill watches:
For the very first time, Junghans are offering an automatic version with a diameter of 34 millimetres; precisely the size of the original watch from 1961.
A novelty which is sure to delight the design purists.
Originally designed as a gentleman’s watch with a hand-winding movement, the new Kleine Automatic will appeal to enthusiasts of Max Bill’s original design, who prefer the convenience of automatic winding.
The matt-finished stainless-steel case enhances the legibility of the dial. A minimalistic design, with natural beauty, whilst also remaining true to its original purpose and function; displaying the time.
The materials which make up the watch have been selected with the environment in mind.
For example, the straps, with natural hues, are produced from recycled PET material and combine with the domed case back to provide a pleasant, light wearing and comfortable fit.
The self-winding movement acquires its energy from the momentum of the wearer, ensuring maximum conservation of resources.
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 with the new straps in natural hues.
Whatever the size you ultimately decide upon, every version reflects the fascination with the harmony of nature.
