Combining the beautiful, minimal aesthetics that made the Bauhaus Movement so renowned, with the accurate, automatic mechanical movement of modern watchmaking, the Max Bill x Junghans Chronoscope Watch is a perfect example of old meets new. Conceived by architect, painter, sculptor, and designer Max Bill, these watches feature a stainless steel case, your choice of a white or black dial, a black calfskin strap, and luminous hands. With a 30 minute counter, a 12 hour counter, and a date display, the simplicity of this watch belies its functionality. Its automatic movement has a power reserve of up to 46 hours, for accuracy that you can count on.
Looking for a classy watch that's a little untraditional? The Ressence Type 1 Watch should work. Like the Type 3 Watch before it, the Type 1 features no hands and no crown, instead relying on a series of constantly rotating discs to indicate the hours, minutes, seconds, and days of the week. All the dial components are milled from Mallechort, every indicator is filled with grade A Super-Luminova for visibility in the dark, and the whole thing is powered by a system of 18 gears and 56 jewels that's wound simply by turning the case back.
With a generations-long history of producing fine maritime timepieces, it should come as no surprise that Omega would create something as stunning and innovative as the Seamaster Planet Ocean Ceragold Watch. Made with the ocean in mind, this watch features water resistance down to 2,000 feet, a helium escape valve, and an 18-karat red gold diving scale on the bezel. Made from an 18-karat gold-encrusted ceramic known as Ceragold, it has a domed scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a red gold case, a black dial, and a transparent case back. With a self-winding chronograph movement and a power reserve of 60 hours, you'll be ready for any adventure — aquatic or otherwise.
