Junghans adopts colorful Bauhaus theories in anniversary watch

FORM A 100 J.Bauhaus _027_4937_44_Wrist_RGB

Bauhaus architecture and design is best-known for its monochrome palette, but Johannes Itten, a 20th century Swiss expressionist painter and designer, advanced the movement when he produced a color wheel that could be adopted by its adherents.

German watchmaker Junghans has embraced the work of Mr Itten in a watch designed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus.

A special Form A watch, limited to 1000 pieces, uses squares of color from the Itten’s wheel to pick out each hour on the dial.

Known as the Form A 100 Jahre Bauhaus from Junghans, the watch is on sale this month $1,095.

It uses a self-winding J800.2 movement in a 39.3mm steel case worn on a steel Milanese bracelet.
