Mondaine Simply Elegant 36mm Mesh Strap


The Mondaine Simply Elegant series is arguably the most significant  Mondaine development since the famous Swiss Railway Clock was adapted for the wrist in 1986 and installed in the Permanent Collection of MOMA New York. The new series is thirty percent thinner than its predecessors. It sits on a wrist without disturbance to cuff or sleeve. A 6.3mm total thickness is indeed simply elegant.

There's no date function on this watch because the casing's too thin for it. You'll just have to revel in jealous looks on any day.

The Simply Elegant's Milanese stainless steel strap is relevant in complementing a thin watch face. It's long been used for such. The metal strap style first became prominent in Milan in the 19th century, and the snakeskin like pattern has also been seen in high fashion Italian fabric design. The Milanese watch strap style has been adopted by premium watch companies in Denmark, Germany... and Switzerland. Mondaine has offered it for a number of years. As an extra elegant touch for an already elegant watch.
