The new Mondaine SBB evo2 has been subtly refined for contemporary life. Its slightly rounded shape with an almost seamless transition to its case back has been ergonomically designed for ultimate comfort. Refined case lugs and a new functional crown sit in perfect proportion throughout the whole collection for precise balance.
Why does the second hand stop after each minute for two seconds? A unique feature of the Swiss Railway (SBB) Clock to ensure smooth and absolutely precise departures of Swiss trains on the full minute for the last 70 years. An ingenious design by a Swiss engineer employed by SBB, that ensured train punctuality would become a visible concept across the globe. A timepiece that ticks off the minute at 58 seconds continues to charm and intrigue; Swiss watchmaker Mondaine has incorporated this unique motion within its Mondaine - SBB/Official Swiss Railway Watch.
Mondaine asked designer Martin Drechsel, to come up with a design for the new watch. As a tribute to its industrial background he framed the stainless steel case with two matte-brushed stainless steel braces, fading to the horns to fit the strap. The crown has been built as a functional switch for easy time setting of the new and unique movement, which was developed by Mondaine, to ensure clear visibility of the 12 o’clock second stop and iconic dial. The crystal is made from scratch resistant anti-reflective coated sapphire glass.
