M Mechanicals Junghans Created in the era of the Bauhaus, the design watches of the Max Bill by Junghans range are now modern classics for the wrist. The two new max bill automatic models are simple and pure remaining true to the original purist style. Previously only found in the hand-wound version, the new automatic is a slightly larger, but still moderately sized rendition of its predecessor at 38 mm. Designed and made in Germany with a Swiss movement (ETA 2824) within, the new Max Bill line ranges in price from $870 - $980. www.junghanswatchesusa.net Martenero The Ace revisits the pilot type with a tan dial and American-made strap to match. Inside the 42mm stainless steel case beats a Miytoa 821a automatic winding movement visible through the see-through back. Martenero’s ace looks good on the currently popular NATO style strap, but aficionados will likely prefer the Horween leather strap crafted for Martenero by Tanner Goods. $610 at www.martenero.com Raymond Weil Pure lines and elegant dial decoration create the newest evolution of the maestro series. The automatic winding Swiss mechanical movement has a 38 hour power reserve and features a large date window at 3 o’clock. At a medium size 39.5mm, the polished stainless steel case contrasts the textured black dial and croc pattern calfskin strap. $1,096 at www.raymond-weil.com 12 FUNCTION | AboutTime Magazine
