The evolution of a classic design

Carrying the following features - stainless steel, sapphire crystal, quartz movement, pressed caseback, and water resistance 30/100/3, Mondaine continues to evolve from its rich history that dates back to 1944. This was when Swiss engineer, designer and employee of the Federal Swiss Railways Hans Hilfiker created a clock, which has become known as the “Official Swiss Railways Clock”. 

From there, the Bernheim family drew inspiration for the classic watch design and in 1986, turned the blueprint of the iconic patented design of the Railways Clock into a watch collection, with official license from the Federal Swiss Railways. 

Soon after, the Bernheim’s Mondaine watch brand continued to launch timepieces inspired by the classic style of the “Official Swiss Railways Clock”. From its first ladies’ watch in 1988, a desk watch in 1989, the introduction of night vision in 2005 through a self powered illumination system, and the STOP2GO feature function in 2013, among many other firsts has kept the brand exciting throughout its storied history. 

In between introducing innovations and exciting firsts are industry accolades and recognition from the public for being one of Switzerland’s most iconic watch brands.
