    Junghans Max Bill 38mm

    I've been trying to compare the 38mm Max Bill to the Hamilton Intramatic 38mm.

    The Hammy has a 38mm case and 35mm dial. The lug to lug is 44mm.

    The Max Bill has a 38mm case, but only a 40mm lug to lug.

    Would anyone be able to tell me what the dial size is for the Max Bill?

    I'm trying to fight out which watch would wear "bigger" even though they are both 38mm cases.

    Thanks

    You also want to compare the glass on these watches. I chose the Hamilton because many said the Max Bill easily scratched.

    I've tried on both. The Intra-Matic wears slightly larger than the Max Bill only because of the design if the indices which gives the impression of a larger dial. Between the two though I'd take the Max Bill, the design is so distinct and original.

    If the intramatic wears larger, then I'm definitely not going to consider the Max Bill. I have a 7.5 inch wrist and having already tried on the Intramatic, I'm still wondering if I can wear it at 38mm.

    Get the Junghans you won't be disappointed It wears larger in person due to the lack of a bezel, I know the Hamilton barely has a bezel as well, but it still does.
    I myself went back and forth between the Max Bill and the Intramatic, Max Bill won out

    Easy to see the size with a tablet or phone, just find a picture and get a ruler then adjust your screen so the watch is 38mm across. Remember the original Bauhaus watches back in the 30s would have been widths like 32mm and 34mm, maybe some large ones at 36mm, so 38mm is absolutely, definately not too small.

    I LOVE those Max Bill watches. For what it's worth the Max Bill is almost all dial so I imagine it would appear larger.

    Hamilton Intramatic also comes in 42 mm size. I read somewhere that Hammy Intra 38 mm wears more like 40 - 42 mm watch due to it being all dial. I imagine same applies to Max Bill.
