Mondaine 35mm Evo Black Strap
The Mondaine 30300 is one of the world's great watch designs. It's otherwise 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.
Its 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 the train guard at departure time.
The Railway Clock became the most famous wall clock in the world. Years later, this watchface gained even greater attention when Apple used the famous face without permission in the Apple iPhone5.
The Mondaine Watch Company adapted Hilfiker's famouis wall clock design to the more portable wristwaych form in 1986. It's water resistant, has a 35mm diameter, and the case is in hard-to-scratch stainless steel. The strap is leather in leather.
