Mondaine, the Official Swiss Railways Watch, launched its first consumer watch version of the Swiss Railways Clock in 1986. This year, the company features an automatic version with its iconic railway dial, using a Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement. The 42 mm watch, called the Mondaine Valjoux 101, commemorates the legendary locomotive B3/4 no.1384, built in 1909.
In other mechanical offerings, Mondaine introduces the Retro Chic line, a Day/Date version of the Railway watch that is simple, yet still striking.
In quartz, Mondaine debuts the Mondaine Classics Collection, a trio of timepieces that use the iconic white Railway dial in three sizes, 30, 33 and 36 mm. If you want something bigger, Mondaine also introduces the Giant at 42 mm. This mat brushed steel timepiece comes with a red leather strap, silver tone dial and raised hour and printed minute markers.
Last but not least, Mondaine introduces the Savonette pocket watch. This elegant classic has a mat brushed stainless steel case (48 mm), the classic Mondaine Railway dial and its push-to-open lid protects the hardened, curved mineral crystal.
