Mondaine SBB wristwatch Classic 30 mm, 75 Years Anniversary Special Set
Watch from an old collection. The batteries have to be replaced soon.
In 1944, Hans Hilfiker, a Swiss engineer, designer and Swiss Federal Railways employee, was commissioned to create the Swiss Federal Railways station clock for SBB (Swiss Federal Railways company), which is known worldwide today as “the official Swiss station clock”. The face with its clean lines is still seen as modern and up to date. The clock is a valuable symbol of quality and identity, not only for the Swiss Federal Railways but also for the whole of Switzerland. The short pause each time the second hand hits the minute mark is a unique technical feature which has long enjoyed cult status. This is why the clock still uses its iconic characteristic in its operation to this day, a fact that even secured it a place in the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York. On its successful journey through time, the Swiss Federal Railways station clock has been supported by its two licensees, Moser-Baer AG from Sumiswald and Mondaine Ltd from Pfäffikon. Its mechanism was designed by the station clock manufacturer Moser-Baer AG on behalf of Swiss Federal Railways under the Mobatime brand. In 1986, Mondaine Ltd launched its wristwatch based on the Swiss Federal Railways station clock. In a rare moment in design history, the miniaturisation worked: regardless of the size of the watch, the proportions are in harmony and embody the attributes so valued in Swiss watches such as functionality, precision, reliability and punctuality. Even after 75 years, the uniqueness and individuality of this design classic still fascinates people all over the world. The Swiss Federal Railways station clock has become a design icon. Today it gives customers a guarantee of punctuality day in day out thanks to its reliable time display and will continue to do so in future.
