Measuring 39 mm in diameter, the Günter Automatic is a perfectly proportioned sports watch that imbibes the Bauhaus design code into a timepiece built for everyday active wear and use.

The watch draws its name from famed architect and urban planner Günter Bock (1918-2002).

He was known for his Brutalist style of architecture. His work often used clear-cut geometric shapes to create buildings. This style of work was very different to the ornate, more decorative style of architecture found in the 1930s. Although controversial today this style of architecture is celebrated for its honesty and realism.

Similarly the Günter Automatic expresses its form through a more geometric form that when put together creates a watch inside the design language of DuFa. Strong lines flow into each other to harmonize precisely into a watch that is elegant yet gives a hint of strength in form.

Crafted out of 316 L marine grade stainless steel the watch utilizes a scratch resistant sapphire lens offering clarity, durability and utmost visibility.

The dial is a restrained study in minimalism. Circular and elongated baton-like indexes created hour markers with Swiss super luminova for maximum visibility in low light conditions. The hour and minute hands are precisely finished and harmonize with the shape, form, and proportion throughout the timepiece. Attached to the case is a solid stainless steel “H” link design bracelet. Each link has been carefully articulated and individually crafted by a CNC machine and then assembled into a supple jigsaw of fluid movement. The watch is powered by a high beat Miyota 9015 Automatic movement, which operates the timekeeping with reliability and precision.

Movement: Precise Japanese Miyota 21 jewels self-winding movement
Case: 316L stainless steel with 39 mm in diameter, 10 mm height
Strap: Metal bracelet, 20 mm lug width

DuFa – Deutsche Uhrenfabrik Thüringen

DuFa stands for “German Uhrenfabrik Thüringen”, which means “German watch factory Thüringen”. It was founded in March 1989 by Otto Hott, Eckart Haller and his sister Doris Stoll-Haller. During and after the quartz-crisis in the 70’s to mid 80’s it was not easy to found and establish a watch brand. Over the years DuFa never established as their founders would have wished for and they declared bankruptcy in the 1990’s. Since 2016 the company was bought and the spirit revived. Like the phoenix from the ashes, DuFa creates time pieces again like their founders had dreamed it.

German minimalistic design

Thüringen is a state in the heart of Germany where we can find the famous city Weimar, the birthplace of the Bauhaus. The school was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar in 1919 and was a merger of the Weimar Saxon Grand Ducal Art School and the Weimar Academy of Fine Art. The minimalistic design of DuFa watches correspond to the philosophy of the Bauhaus: Less is more.

Bauhaus spirit today

DuFa watches unifies the best of the iconic Bauhaus school traditions, underpinned by uncompromising modern standards in manufacturing and componentry. Understatement, neo-classical aesthetic, each piece embodies the movement’s philosophy. DuFa horological instruments have always been synonymous with German precision engineering. From its historic origin at the famed Etzold & Popitz watch and clock factory to its current incarnation as a contemporary watch brand, the timepieces have been produced in the midst of Germany’s rich architectural and cultural landscape. With this heritage of sophisticated excellence and spirit, DuFa’s legacy lives on.
