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.
