Combining Swiss style and quality, Stop2Go is the newest addition to Mondaine and, like the rest of the collection, takes its inspiration from the Swiss Railway Clock, designed in 1944 by Zurich-born engineer Hans Hilfiker.
The Stop2Go timepiece features a sweeping red second hand that completes a full revolution in 58 seconds and pauses at 12 o’clock for two seconds to allow the minute hand to move on, before starting the next rotation. This feature was originally designed to ensure the punctual departure of Swiss trains to the exact minute. The movement has been developed by designer Martin Drechsel for Mondaine and incorporates two synchronised motors.
The 41mm stainless steel case is framed with two matte-brushed stainless steel braces and each watch is individually numbered with a unique reference code. This watch has a silicone strap.
A functional electronic switch (in place of a crown) allows movement to be easily adjusted, and can be rotated in both directions. The watch is finished with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal lens for clarity.
