Junghans watches are, first and foremost, associated today with the Max Bill line of design classics — but the German brand adeptly applies the same Bauhaus philosophy to a range of minimalist watches. With typically sparse designs and moderate sizes, however, the newest Junghans models will feel even more practical and minimal thanks to lightweight titanium cases.
Three new automatic models in the Form A collection now feature cases in matte-textured titanium with matte dials to match. The new Form A Titan (for titanium, of course), has a characteristically simple but refined design, albeit with an interesting touch: the minutes/seconds track at the edge of the dial is formed by imprinted squares rather than printed or applied markers. It offers a three dimensional effect while remaining functional and understated.
The Form A Titan has a 40mm diameter, sapphire crystal, a water resistance of 100m, and is powered by an ETA 2824 automatic movement. Titanium is lightweight and strong but difficult to polish and easily scratched, so a matte finish is a practical choice and should offer a striking presence on the wrist. Three dial variants are available, each with a price of $1,095.
