Mondaine Official Swiss Railway Watches - THE Swiss Time Icon

In 1944, Hans Hilfiker, a Swiss Engineer and Designer and employee of the Federal Swiss Railways, created a clock, which has become known as the “Official Swiss Railways Clock”. It is amazing just how long this design has endured and now it appears to take a place in the eternal hall of fame along side other well known design icons such as the Coca-Cola bottle, the Mercedes star, the Toblerone packaging, or the design of the US dollar bill.

In 1986 the Mondaine watch company, owned by the Bernheim family, took the blueprint of the iconic-patented design of the Railways Clock and turned it into a watch collection. These watches are the famous clock in miniature and carry the same Swiss reputation of excellent watch making skills, punctuality and uncomplicated design.

The Mondaine collection has in turn become a respected design in its own right and has gone from strength to strength and today it is widely considered to be one of the “10 Classic Swiss Watch Designs”.
