Like the Brauns, the Max Bill is on the daintier side. Its case is 1.49 inches (38 mm) across. This isn’t too small though as it’s considered the lower end of the ‘perfect size’ spectrum.
The watch is Quartz. We were surprised to find a Japanese Quartz earlier, so we’re happy that the Junghans has the J645.33, which is fully Swiss made.
You see a pretty wide dial, which might intimidate you. That being said, it’s very contemporary, which a lot of people would like. Its window is also very flat, making it look like it doesn’t have a crystal on. However, it has a plastic display
. I don’t know how you feel about acrylic displays
, but they feel cheap to me.
Once again, you see Arabic numerals plastered on, so time’s easy to read. However, the font is small, so this might pose a problem.
Although minimalistic, Junghans managed to fit a calendar in the device. It only reads the day’s date, but we weren’t expecting anything more.
There’s a leather strap on it. It feels just as premium as the Braun.
Of course, the device is water-resistant, but not as much. The watch can only withstand a dunk or two as it’s resistant up to 100 feet (30 m) underwater.
Its hands are thin, due to the Bauhaus aesthetic. This is great, but there is luminous paint on it. Being so thin, having luminous paint makes it useless.
