Mondaine Essence Wristwatch 41mm White/Black

Kr 2.690

With its new model series "Essence", Mondaine is breaking new ground by using the most environmentally friendly materials possible in the watches.

The main elements in the watch case itself are oil from the seeds of the ricunus plant, so-called castor seeds (41%). The second element is glass (30%). The result is a very robust watch case that will keep the watch virtually scratch-free for many years.

The strap is made of 38% natural rubber, which makes the strap soft and very comfortable to wear. The strap also does not attract moisture like a leather strap. If necessary, you can simply wipe the strap with a damp cloth.

Back in the 1940s, Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) wanted to highlight its reputation for punctuality and asked Hans Hilfiker to design a solid legible clock. The clock should not only form the basis of SBB's identity, but also help to ensure correct departures. Hans Hilfiker, who was known for creating products that were both functional and well designed, designed the clock in 1944. Despite having no numbers on the dial, the clock is legible with only a quick glance. The red seconds hand is a small copy of the station attendant's hand-held departure signal, and has become a symbol of punctuality in Switzerland.
