Mondaine Evo2 30mm Big Date wrist watch is a Mondaine for smaller wrists (their regular size is 35mm diameter), but with a BIG date feature which is obvious to read so you’re always literally up-to-date.
Curiously, this date feature is not available again in the Mondaine range until their slightly over-sized 40mm diameter models.
The red strap here matches the little red second hand, which itself is a reference to the little paddles that Swiss station masters used to despatch trains.
Whilst having the legendary provenance of the Official Swiss Railways Clock, the Mondaine Evo2 30mm wrist watch is part of Mondaine’s 2017 update of their 1986 original. It has a refined case, lugs, crown, caseback, and sapphire glass (rather than regular hardened mineral glass) so that it’s more scratch resistant.

*Mondaine’s smallest watch is a 26mm version, but The Good Store doesn’t stock it because we think the face is just a bit too small for easy time reading. Life begins at 30 !
