Those are some pretty funky dials. They look like a cross between Nomos and Alan Silberstein. Not really my style but I'm sure they will do well.

Funky ? Yes. Bauhaus: do not see the Bauhaus theme. More a play of geometrical patterns."Form follows function" should be "less". My two cents.
Drawings were made by an architect that likely knows more about what is Bauhaus and what is not Bauhaus than most of us here.

One thing is to like project or not, other is to wrongly state it is not a Bauhaus inspired work when it is.

Are this examples of pieces of work/art from Bauhaus school or not?

Well, I do know about the theory of colour (Itten) and the painting workshop in Weimar and of course your examples shown are Bauhaus (not the cocktail dress, designed in 1965, this one is Bauhaus inspired). However and this was meant with my puristic comment watches felt under "form follows function" (Max Bill) and colour wasn't part of that drift. Bauhaus wasn't monothestic so I guess we are both right.

The Bauhaus shop is selling this Jacob Jensen as being Bauhaus as well.
