Max Bill Chronoscope for Junghans

In 1962 Swiss artist Max Bill (1908-1994) created a few mechanical watches for the German company Junghans. Reissued in recent years, this rare Chronoscope model has a certain-something, its minimalism is just plain-attractive. Apparently this particular version isn't sold anymore and the only one I could find was at-->Link

A product of the Bauhaus generation, Max Bill was pupil Walter Gropius and kindred spirit of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe – was a virtuoso designer and creative artist, as his diverse activities as a painter, architect, sculptor, teacher and designer amply demonstrate. His work is characterised by a clarity of design and precise proportions.
