    Design icon: Cartier Tank or Junghans Max Bill

    Which of these is greater design icon: Cartier Tank or Junghans Max Bill?

    I'm looking to add one design icon in my collection and have narrowed it down to these two.

    Steel Tank solo vs Steel hand-wind Max Bill

    Pretty massive price difference, and they’re pretty different beasts.

    I like Junghans in general but would not get that model mostly due to the acrylic glass. Have you looked at the form C models? Don’t know if you like quartz or not but they look similar. YMMV on the glass, some like the acrylic.

    I have a Meister Pilot with stainless bezel and a black face, black/brown band. Love it except for the band. Just saying that so you know I’m not disrespecting Junghans :)

    The TANK has been around for over a century (102-year old design). Max Bill is a new kid on the block.

    The Max Bills a great looking watch but at this moment in time I’m getting a bit sick of seeing soooo many Bauhaus re-imagined pieces.
    The Tank is more of a design statement piece imo. The MB will always be an icon. Let the whole Bauhaus aesthetic thing die down a little and pick it up later.
