This model is a slight adaptation of the original concept of the Swiss Bauhaus designer Max Bill, who created a wristwatch line for Junghans in 1961. The new colour interpretation emphasises the clear and reduced form language of the watch classic: discreet grey and gold shades place the minimalist design at the fore-front, the sand gold coloured case takes a less prominent position. The dial is clearly placed, making it in conjunction with the domed glass good to read. Grey shades on the dial and strap complete the purist overall impression.
