Junghans’ Stunning 2015 Max Bill Chronoscope

Think of Switzerland and you think of giant Toblerone bars, impeccable timekeeping and stunning design.
 
Though only one of these had sway over the Max Bill Chronoscope, first designed in 1962 and now re-released with a shimmering new edition costing £1500 – namely design, with Swiss artist Max Bill the man who gave the original wrist piece its look back in the day.
 
The latest incarnation rejigs the dial slightly by removing the seconds markers on the outside for a smoother, uncluttered look. A new day-date indicator has been added, while signature touches such as the bubble domed lens remain.
 
It’s not quite a Toblerone watch, but it's not half bad.
