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.

Classic

Classic

The classic collection impresses with its cleanly designed case made from brushed stainless steel which imparts a timeless and minimalistic look and feel. The iconic dial is highly readable through the hardened mineral crystal. The red crown and the red colour on the inside of the strap are hidden design features. An iconic design and a true classic. Developed in 1944 by the Swiss Federal Railways, the SBB, for their train stations, it was first launched by Mondaine in 1986 as a wristwatch. The design has stood the test of time and remained unchanged ever since. The simple and clear look indicates the influence of the Bauhaus style and reflects sustainability and clarity. This watch is a true statement: a Swiss original.

Stop2go

Stop2go

The stop2go watch from Mondaine inherited not only its timeless design from the iconic Mondaine Swiss train station clock, but its functionality too. State of the art in watch making, the second hand temporarily stops when it reaches 12 so the minute hand can gracefully jump to the next minute. This design icon stands for quality, precision and style. Furthermore, the stop2go watch uses innovative BackLight technology too. This unique feature lights up the iconic Mondaine railways clock dial without harming the design or using batteries. The underside of the hands glow in the dark and light up the dial so the time can be read in dark places too. Additionally, the anti-glare and scratch resistant sapphire crystal is the icing on the cake.

Evo2

Evo2

The evo2 embodies minimalist design and traditional Swiss craftsmanship. Representing a true progression of the original Classic collection, it keeps the same timeless Bauhaus style, but adds more fluid, organic shapes to the watch. Furthermore, the seamless housing and the slightly rounded case offer maximum comfort on the wrist. Choose between four different case sizes in a range of strap and bracelet combinations.

Giant

Giant

Big ideas need lots of space and the Mondaine Giant Collection has plenty available. With a resplendent 42mm case, the impressive size of the Giant makes quite an impact. Also, for a smaller, unisex option, the Mini Giant is 35mm in diameter. Furthermore, equipped with innovative BackLight technology, Mondaine has developed a clever way to light up the dial. Without using batteries, the underside of the hands glow in the dark. Moreover, thanks to a magnifying mineral glass, the iconic dial is clear and legible. Finally, the leather strap or mesh bracelet is embedded into the case creating a unique, sleek look.

With its ultra-flat 6.2mm case, the Simply Elegant watch from Mondaine certainly lives up to its name. The collection takes its iconic design from the Official Swiss Railways Watch. Available with either a 41mm or 36mm case, choose between a classic black or red leather strap or beautiful milanese mesh bracelet. The dial is in white with classic black hour and minute markers and red second hand. The overall look is striking yet discreet. A unisex watch, this timepiece looks great on both a man and a woman.

The epitome of Swiss precision and styling, 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: The First Carbon-Neutral Watch Company

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.
