To go with my mandatory Andre Benjamin reblog policy, I’ve added a mandatory Junghans Max Bill reblog policy. In this case, the chronograph with date. Doesn’t get much more beautiful than this watch.

This is my favorite watch, and it’s a steal at $250.  Mine is on a leather band, but this ribbon is quite lovely, too.

For my money, there’s no more beautiful wristwatch than those designed by Max Bill for Junghans in the middle of the 20th century.  Bill was a legendary designer, fine artist and teacher at the Bauhaus, possibly Switzerland’s greatest artist.  His watches reflect his clean early modern design — he believed mathematics could be a path to aesthetics.  They can be tough to find in the US, though they are sold at the Museum of Modern Art store.
