The Swiss time icon of ingenuity and simplicity are the elements which often distinguish an attractive piece of design from a truly iconic design classic. The Mondaine Official Swiss Railways Clock is proud to be associated with such an example of excellent 20th century design. The simple design, the unmistakable easy-to-read face, distinctive hands and the famous red seconds hand have made the Mondaine collection successful the world over. In 1944, Hans Hilfiker, a Swiss Engineer and Designer and employee of the Federal Swiss Railways, created a clock, which has become known as the Official Swiss Railways Clock.
