The inspiration for the brand was the “Official Swiss Railways Clock”. Created in 1944 by Hans Hilfiker, the clock quickly became a standout feature of all railway stations and eventually became a Swiss national icon. In 1986 Mondaine, founded by Erwin Bernheim, created its first timepiece with official license from the Federal Swiss Railways. Since then, Mondaine has strived to preserve the classic, timeless look of the original design, while still aiming to implement contemporary technologies and innovative features to each new collection. From implementing new backlight technology to contactless payments and smartwatches, the brand has ensured each and every watch is quintessentially Mondaine.
The Evo2 is a way for Mondaine to combine form and functionality. The elements of the Evo2 timepieces are carefully thought out and selected to enhance both the watch’s usability and its design.
