Is WatchPilot an authorised Mondaine seller?

Yes, we are an official supplier of Mondaine watches and have a direct line of communication with the brand. Every Mondaine watch we sell is authentic and comes in an official Mondaine presentation box with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.

What is the relationship between Mondaine and the Official Swiss Railways Clock?

In the 1940s, a Swiss engineer and designer called Hans Hilfiker created a clock that would become known as the “Official Swiss Railways Clock”. Think of it as a design blueprint that is absolutely iconic across Swiss train stations. In 1986, the Mondaine watch company was officially licenced by Federal Swiss Railways to turn this patented clock design into a series of wristwatches. All the essential elements remain the same, including the shape of the dial, the hands and the indices. A Mondaine watch is the only way to inject this Swiss watchmaking history into your personal collection.

Is Mondaine a luxury watch brand?

Mondaine occupies a middle ground between fashion and luxury. It’s an accessible and affordable brand with a great story that sets it apart from other minimalist watchmakers. Because its watches are Swiss-made and contain Swiss Ronda quartz and automatic movements, there’s real kudos at the heart of Mondaine that adds to its reputation among collectors.

Are Mondaine pocket watches and wall clocks available?

The Mondaine Specials collection contains pocket watches and chain link strap watches that offer a fresh take on the Official Swiss Railways design. There’s also a range of Mondaine wall clocks and table clocks that are great for adding a touch of European Bauhaus style to a home office. Speak to a member of the WatchPilot team if you’d like to add one of these items to your collection.

What type of Mondaine watch strap should I choose?

Mondaine watch straps can be swapped and changed depending on your mood. The brand offers leather, stainless steel, vegan leather, natural rubber and textile straps in a range of colours. We recommend looking a the Mondaine Classic with a stainless steel Milanese mesh band or opting for a black or red leather strap that’s a true signature of the brand. Remember to start your search with the Mondaine Essence collection if sustainable materials are an important consideration for you.
