Every watch in the Bauhaus collection is designed by the inspiration of the relationship between Hugo Junkers and the influence that the Bauhaus movement played on the Junkers aircraft. The 6046-5 watch, which is part of the Bauhaus collection, portrays a sophisticated style built with high German quality.
Hugo Junkers was not only a brilliant engineer, but also a great admirer of expressionist paintings and modern design. His intelligence and creativity is evident in the Bauhaus collection as they offer a variety of features for every aviation enthusiast ranging from multiple sub-dials to a date display. This collection gives you the choice of black leather strap with a matching black dial or brown leather strap with a cream dial making these watches suitable for any occasion.
This watch is light and comfortable enough to wear on any wrist. It weighs 45 grams with a case diameter of 40 x 10 mm. Due to its small size and weight, this watch lies naturally flat on your wrist and doesn’t appear to be bulky.
The bezel measures at 1 mm leaving more room for the domed hesalite crystal to protect the outer edge of the dial. In fact, you’ll see a reflected image of the dial since the interior wall is so thin. This watch has a water resistance of 3 ATM (30 meters). With prominent German craftsmanship, this watch promises to be a durable watch while looking stylish.
The 6046-5 watch is powered by a Ronda 515 Swiss quartz movement. This movement features hours, minutes, central seconds and a date with a hacking function. The hacking function allows you to stop the movement whenever you please by pulling the crown. It measures 26 mm diameter by 3 mm height.
Running on a 371 Swiss Renata battery, this watch has a claimed battery life of 45 months. That’s almost 4 years. Because this is a quartz movement, you don’t have to worry about winding the movement every day.
