The Simply Elegant collection is designed for people who love the Mondaine design, but want something more elegant and dressy, perfect for a day in the office or a night on the town. The Simply Elegant case is quite thin, only 6.2 mm high, and the specially designed lugs of the case allow the watch to adapt to any size wrist so the watch sits comfortably flat.
This iconic watch face design is seen in all the railway station clocks of the Swiss Federal Railways SBB [Schweizerische Bundesbahne].
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 watch 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.
