Mondaine 35mm Evo Red Strap
The Mondaine Evo watch is the most famous design of one of the world's great watch companies. It's known as the Swiss railway Watch. It's not fussy, it just tells the time very clearly and simply, and without the aid of numerals.
The Mondaine watchface creation dates from 1944 when the revered Hans Hilfiker designed the Swiss Railway Clock for ease of reading on the railway stations of Switzerland. The famous red second hand was inspired by the paddle waved by Swiss train guards at train departure time.
In 1986 the Mondaine Watch Company adapted Hilfiker's design to a more portable form. This watch is the result. It's water resistant, has a 35mm diameter, and the case is in 35mm hard-to-scratch stainless steel. The strap is leather. In this red strap edition, to match the little red second hand.
