The Mondaine collection has such a strong identity that it has long been considered as one of the “10 Classic Swiss Watch Designs”, scooping design awards and achieving cult watch status.
The stop2go collection not only inherited the iconic timeless design of the Swiss Railways clock, but also features a unique watch movement that resembles that of this legendary clock. Just like the clocks across Swiss Railways Stations, the distinctive red second hand of the wristwatch makes a full circle turn in 58 seconds and then waits for 2 seconds when it reaches 12 o'clock, allowing the minute hand to elegantly jump to the next minute.
Ingenuity and simplicity are the elements which often distinguish an attractive piece of design from a truly iconic design classic. For more than 60 years, MONDAINE has followed a simple idea: form and function in perfect harmony. MONDAINE’s Classic collection unites distinguished and timeless Swiss design with innovation, high craftsmanship and functionality providing a lifetime of reliability.
Crafted with the utmost attention to detail, the Cushion collection combines the sleek elegance of a luxury timepiece with the rugged reliability of a sports watch. With its unique cushion-shaped case and rounded smooth corners, this new line is crafted sustainably and features an everlasting design.
The MONDAINE evo2 embodies minimalist design and traditional Swiss craftmanship. The collection keeps the same timeless Bauhaus style, but adds more fluid, organic shapes to the watch. The seamless housing and the slightly rounded case offer maximum comfort on your wrist. Furthermore, the sapphire crystal protects the iconic, highly readable dial.
Big ideas need lots of space. With the Giant collection, MONDAINE demonstrates the innovative strength behind their traditional brand. The magnifying mineral glass supports the distinguished look of the design and ensures optimal readability. Also, innovative BackLight technology lights up the iconic Swiss station clock design. The underside of the hands glow in the dark and light up the dial.
The Simply Elegant collection is designed for people who love the MONDAINE design, but want something more elegant and dressy, perfect for a day in the office or a night on the town. The Simply Elegant case is the thinnest Mondaine offer at only 6.2 mm high. Also, the specially designed lugs of the case allow the watch to adapt to any size wrist, so the watch sits comfortably flat.
MONDAINE has blended Swiss watchmaking heritage and design with a forward thinking commitment to our planet’s future. The essence collection is uses ecofriendly sources, its sustainable materials such as ricinus oil, cork and recycled PET. With its multi-purpose pouch, these modern creations are not only clean and simple in design but considerate to the world we live in.

MONDAINE has turned the iconic design of the Official Swiss Railways Clock into a world-renowned timeless watch and clock collection. The brand has followed a simple idea: form and function in perfect harmony, combining a classic minimalistic design with impeccable quality, reliability and the precision of Swiss craftsmanship. The MONDAINE watch collection, first introduced in 1986, is now regarded to be one of the “10 top Classic Swiss Watch Designs” and its presence in modern art museums underscores its status as a cultural icon and a testament to Swiss design excellence. MONDAINE is a family-owned company, and all watches are Swiss Made, hand produced in the Swiss factory.
Mondaine watches owe their distinct look to the design of the Official Swiss Railways Clock. The design was created by Swiss Engineer and Designer Hans Hilfiker in 1944. In the mid 1980’s, Mondaine company owners – the Bernheim family, obtained the licence to produce a wristwatch version of the famous design. Mondaine watches are still made under this licence today and are known as the Official Swiss Railways Watch.
The iconic Mondaine style is recognisable by the red second hand and plain monochrome dial. The hour and minute markers are chunky and give the dial a graphic look. However, whilst the brand has stayed true to these design roots, the collection has evolved over the years. Some key milestones include the launch of the the Evo line in 2001. Also, the introduction of the unique Stop2GO model in 2013. Additionally, 2017 saw the launch of innovative BackLight technology to allow good visibility of the hands at night.
Mondaine is one of the first entirely carbon-neutral watch companies in the world with a commitment to sustainability stretching back over 30 years. Furthermore, carbon neutrality extends to all areas of its business. This includes the factory, watch components, packaging, waste, power, water and business travel. Moreover, a huge photovoltaic system on the factory roof, use of hydroelectricity at its headquarters, a reduction in the volume and weight of packaging and the use of eco-friendlier materials in its packaging, casings and straps have all had a positive impact on the company’s carbon footprint.
In 2017, Mondaine launched what is probably the world’s most sustainable watch collection: ESSENCE. Firstly, the case is made from 70% natural raw materials, namely from the oil of the wondertree plant and glass powder. Secondly, no straps in the ESSENCE collection are made from leather. Instead, they are made from wondertree oil or recycled PET bottles. Also, the underside of the strap is lined with natural cork. Even the packaging of the essence models consists of more than 96% recycled PET bottles. Additionally, the packaging is designed to be repurposed as a case for a mobile phone or eyewear.
