Mondaine Big Date 30mm Evo Red Strap
Mondaine Evo 30mm wrist watch is the slightly scaled down big date version of Mondaine's famed regular-sized 35mm watches – just smaller for smaller wrists. It's intended to look very fine on the wrist of a woman who's not too small, and not too big – and is the only 30mm Mondaine design currently available
Like the original 35mm Mondaine Evo Swiss Railway Watch it tells the time very clearly and simply, and without the aid of numerals. An extra bonus is the easily seen day-of-the-month-feature.
It draws on the Mondaine's history – dating 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 being inspired by the paddle waved by the train guard at departure time.
Swiss Railway Clocks became the most famous wall clocks in the world. The Mondaine Watch Company adapted Hilfiker's famouis wall clock design to the more portable wristwatch form in 1986.
This watch is water resistant, and the case is hard-to-scratch stainless steel. The strap is leather.
