The instrument-styled dial with its large numerals offers optimal legibility, as is also required for on-board clocks. Matt surfaces and the anti-reflection coated (both sides) sapphire crystal serve to keep light reflection to a minimum, including when flying at night, whilst the intensive white luminous material keeps the time display in focus. The Meister Pilot is powered by a dependable automatic calibre, which grants the timepiece its independence – and the pilot the security that he requires of a co-pilot.
The feeling of exhilaration experienced by Max Bill upon encountering the Bauhaus is reflected in the to 1,000 watches limited edition Junghans max bill Automatic in 2019. This watch bears the fundamental ideas ingrained in the very fabric of the Bauhaus. The matt silver dial commemorates the white walls of the building in Dessau, and the anthracite coloured case is representative of the striking façade. Designed in the colour of the architects, the grey strap is inspired by the construction element of the Bauhaus: concrete. Guaranteeing ideal readability thanks to their clear and simplistic form, the red hands mirror the colour design of the famous red doors of the Bauhaus in Dessau. A hue which is even more prominent in the red date wheel. The back of the watch will prove a true journey through time for enthusiasts and admirers of the Bauhaus. With its large windowed façade, the Bauhaus building is impressively represented on the glass case back– at the same time allowing a view of the mechanical movement through a window steeped in history. The red accentuated here is taken directly from the renowned red door of the Bauhaus building itself.
The new FORM A is a watch awaiting discovery. Viewed from the front it presents a clear profile, whilst being ergonomic from the side – the con-vex shape of the case underscores its flat appear-ance and enhances wearing comfort. At first glance the FORM A appears somewhat reserved. It is only on closer observation that the optical refinements are revealed. The modern, austere design of the timepiece offers scope for a remarkable three-dimensionality. This is created by an embossed square minute track and the con-cave doming of the dial, which is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Equally discreet and stylish in the models with hour numerals is the contrasting edge of the leather strap – tailored to the colours of the minute track. As a further feature, the automatic movement that the A in the name refers to can be viewed through a tinted glass back.
