Minimalist watches aren't known for having a lot of complexity. Day dates are uncommon. Moon phases and GMT functions are both non-minimalist in nature.
However, there are a few minimalist chronographs with dials that are simultaneously busy and clean. We'll go through that in more detail later.
The Bauhaus School of Art was a Weimar, Germany-based art, craft, and architecture school. Although it was only open for 14 years (1919–1933), it had a lasting impact on architecture and design.
The Bauhaus School's motto was "form follows function." In essence, a thing had to perform what it was supposed to do first and foremost. Then, the style and flair could incorporate as long as it didn't interfere with the purpose.
Those Bauhaus rules continue to inspire many watches today. They're plain and straightforward while also being easy to read and understand. Numerals, typically printed simply dials in the Bauhaus font—intended mainly for the school's own needs such as letterhead and correspondence—can be found.
THE BEST MEN'S MINIMALIST WATCHES
Let's get into The Best Minimalist Watches for Men now that you've had a little tutorial on minimalism. These timepieces are priced between $50 and $1000, which most consider an entry-level range.
MAX BILL JUNGHANS
The Max Bill may be the best representation of what Bauhaus design offers in the world of timepieces for under $1000. This no-frills watch is basic, sleek, and easy to read, and it features a Junghans automatic movement with a 38-hour battery reserve.

Some men are so enamored with the Bauhaus aesthetic that they want more of it on their watch faces. The Dessau Chronograph is the ideal combination of a practical timepiece and a stylish Bauhaus design. It is the only chronograph on the list and the only watch with a quartz mechanism.
SPITZBERGEN F13 JUNKERS
The Junkers Spitzbergen is a good option if you want a watch with a basic appearance but require something a little more durable. This tough-looking German-made aerospace timepiece looks excellent while playing the Bauhaus role. The case of the Spitzbergen F13 is 40mm broad and 12mm thick.
SWISSMATIC TISSOT AT ALL TIMES
The Swiss-made every time from Tissot delivers a lot for your money at a meager price. This simplistic beauty is powered by an ETA Swissmatic watch with a 72-hour battery reserve that is amazing for the price. It is a simple design except for the date complexity.
One of the watch's most exciting features is its display case back, which is unusual for watches at this price point.
BAMBINO V3 GENERATION 2
The Orient Bambino could very well be the most excellent affordable Japanese-made minimalist watch on the market. The V3 Generation 2's clean, minimalist design and excellent dimensions demonstrate why it is the reigning champion.
The case of the Bambino V3 is 40.5mm broad and 11.8mm thick, and it fits nicely on the quirky-sized 21mm leather strap. The case is made of brushed stainless steel and has a domed, toughened mineral crystal on top.
Bishamonten is the God of War, and has existed since ancient times. The name comes from the toponymic roots of Japan - 毘貝閻魔大王, or "Bishamonten Bosatsu-ō." While this moniker is used to refer to the god in the context of Japanese Buddhism, it also often appears in other texts. Read more
