    Today I shall wear the thinner of these:
    1. The Bauhaus styled, Junghans Max Bill Chronoscope
    2. The 8500 Aqua Terra, 41mm variant with date frame
    AT BM side by IMG_9313.jpg

    The elegant Max Bill has a disadvantage being a 7750 based chronograph but has no running seconds hand, no applied markers, and low low WR, around 30m I believe.

    The sapphire sandwich AT has the feature packed 8500, 60 hr power, co-axial, blah blah blah…plus applied markers with appreciable thickness,...AND is burdened with 150m of WR.

    Here we go…
    BM thickness IMG_9299.jpg
    Max Bill: 14.1mm

    AT thickness IMG_9302.jpg
    While the AT measures 12.9mm

    So yes, with its domed crystal and caseback the Max Bill is thicker...it least in the center…but it sure disguises it well on the wrist though!
    AT BM on top IMG_9304.jpg

    True to my word...and not to be kicked out of bed…I am wearing the AT. YaY!

    @Lou P, I would never have guessed that Max Bill was packing a 7750! That is good design .

    Now this qualifies as a daily wearer. Someone was asking if a vintage Speedmaster could fit the bill as a "daily beater". Firstly, I hate the term "beater" especially if it involves valuable, irreplaceable vintage pieces. What you have done really makes this watch an everyday go to, save the bezel. If you ding that, a few $$$ will go out the window.

    This guy finds an Omega on the beach. All I ever find is a broken plastic shovel from some kids plastic beach fun set.

    The platinum has so much heft! I think it'd be extremely tempting over a patek annual calendar...
