I was just holding the Max Bill in the palm of my hand when I realized that all these years he's been deceiving me. Our relationship is based on a lie and I don't know if we will ever be able to mend it and carry on. Sniff...
We usually seek external comfort in these trying time and although I usually don't put much faith in the unlikely intervention of supra natural entities, I did find that the advise conveyed by his noodly appendage to chill out and drink the coffee managed to lift me up. But still:
The Max Bill is small.
It looks larger than it really is because it's basically one big white dial with no bezel or case overhang. But it's still just 38mm that masquerade like a 42.
Apart of this duplicity, there's a lot of good thing going on for the Max Bill. Class is one of them, and wearability is another. It's a design that manage to be classic without being boring and one of the reason to this is the way that the dial curves beneath the crystal that in turn join the sides of the case to create...well basically a flying saucer.
It's very friendly to wear with a dress shirt, something that I don't expect to wear until the end of October, and in the meantime it's not too shabby looking on my sleeveless arm.
It's nice, but when I wear it I could swear it's at least 40mm.
