With its focus on the bare essentials, this Max Bill Chronoscope Automatic Watch, a design from 1961, is a minimalist classic. This mechanical watch has been updated with PVD (Physical Vapor Depositions), a coating that’s applied to steel to add a layer of black color. It is also distinguished by the design’s original details, such as a spare dial and an absence of the small-seconds display, creating a striking symmetry. Max Bill’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection. The Max Bill Chronoscope Automatic PVD Watch is made in Germany from stainless steel. It has a 40mm case and a strap that measures 8l x .4"w.
