Mondaine Sports | Chronograph | Swiss railway watch

Sporty classic: The chronograph with oversized date display. The Sports Gents Line is the sporty version of the official Swiss Railway Watch, offering functionality as well as variety. This model now is also available as a chronograph with oversized date. Slightly curved mineral glass is used to ensure a clear view of the face of this classic, precision timepiece at all times. The variety of stopwatch functions this model features provide for exact, down-to-the-second timing.

Admirers of the SBB clock can buy their own replicas: in 1986 the Swiss watchmaker Mondaine launched a copyrighted watch and clock collection based on this classic design; Mondaine’s Official Swiss Railways SBB Watch has itself been named one of the 10 classic watch-making designs to have come from Switzerland. It has also been selected by the London Design Museum and the MoMa (Museum of Modern Art) as one of the most iconic examples of 20th century design. The SBB clock was not Hilfiker’s only contribution to modern living. He developed the concept of the fitted kitchen and was responsible for the standard Swiss dimensions for kitchen components (55/60/90 cm).

In 1986 Mondaine converted the clock’s legendary face and bold hands into wristwatch form. This one-of-a-kind, easily readable watch has become one of the true design classics recognized the world over. The straightforward and unadorned shape of the case and crystal make this watch a true time icon.

Clocks & Alarms

Mondaine clocks | Alarms clocks | Swiss Railway Clocks

The Mondaine clock collection embodies executive presence and superior design. These distinctive timepieces for the wall, the pocket, the nightstand or desktop are useful and attractive items of lasting value. A wall clock for the office area, a desk clock for the reception counter or the writing desk, a traditional pocket watch or a practical travel alarm clock. All with the unique and legendary face.

Mondaine Watch Ltd. was founded in 1951 by Erwin Bernheim and is managed today by his sons Ronnie and André Bernheim. It unites the brands Mondaine, Camel Active, M-Watch as well as Luminox. The assembly of these watches takes place at the brand new Mondaine factory in Biberist.

The development of the brand really started in the 1990’s when Mondaine moved away from the original concept of the watch, which used recycled brass as the foundation of the case over which the plating was placed. The range now includes Sportline, Sport II and since 2009 the Retro interpretation. During the 1990’s a “Stop to Go” watch version was introduced which mimicked the movement of the Station Clock; halting at 12.00 o’clock and then resuming it’s rotation around the dial.
