WHAT THE EXPERTS HAVE TO SAY

SINCE IT ACQUIRED THE LICENSE TO REPRODUCE HANS HILFIKER’S 1944 SWISS RAILWAYS CLOCK IN 1986, THEY DO BEAR THE SPECIFIC RESPONSIBILITY OF MARKING THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THAT CLASSIC DESIGN. THOSE MIDCENTURY LOOKS ARE AS RELEVANT AS EVER.

JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF FLASH-WITH-CLASS, AND CERTAINLY DESERVES A SPOT IN YOUR ROTATIONS AS A STATEMENT PIECE.

SWISS RAILWAY CLOCKS ARE SO ICONIC THAT SIR TERENCE CONRAN COMMISSIONED A SELECTION AS A PERMANENT INSTALLATION IN LONDON’S DESIGN MUSEUM. ORIGINATING WITH THE BLUEPRINT OF THIS FAMOUSLY MINIMALIST DESIGN, MONDAINE’S EXPERTLY MADE WATCHES EXUDE UTILITARIAN FLAIR.

MONDAINE IS MAINTAINING ITS COMMITMENT TO MINIMIZING HARM TO THE PLANET THIS YEAR AND HAS CREATED A FRESH RANGE...

THERE’S BEEN SURPRISINGLY LITTLE TALK OF SUSTAINABILITY...BUT THE BRAND LEADING THE CHARGE IS MONDAINE. 

MONDAINE OFFICIAL SWISS RAILWAYS (SBB) SWISS-MADE WATCHES ARE, IN ESSENCE, THE FAMOUS CLOCK IN MINIATURE FORM, REPLETE WITH THE RED PADDLE AND SIMPLE INDEXES TO MARK THE TIME.

TECH IS USEFUL. AND IT'S ALSO UTTERLY UNAVOIDABLE. STILL, MANY OF THE BOFFINS BEHIND ESSENTIAL GADGETRY DON'T REALLY CONSIDER AESTHETICS - OR AT LEAST THEY DIDN'T UNTIL MONDAINE STEPPED IN.

IT’S A BEAUTIFUL, FUNCTIONAL WAY TO OWN AN IMPORTANT PIECE OF SWISS DESIGN HISTORY

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A UNIQUE TIMEPIECE WITH AN EQUALLY INTERESTING BACKSTORY THAT IS VERSATILE ENOUGH TO GO WITH MOST OF YOUR OUTFITS, THE MONDAINE CLASSIC IS FOR YOU.

OUR PROMISE TO SUSTAINABILITY:

In addition to our social, environmental and sustainable impact made with the ESSENCE collection, MONDAINE has now integrated a fully functional solar power plant on the rooftop of the factory. Making MONDAINE among the first in the watch industry in Switzerland who can now produce up to 80% of our yearly electrical consumption.
