Nearly 30 years after releasing the world-famous Swiss Railways watch, this collection from Mondaine is inspired by another of Switzerland’s most important creations: Helvetica.
Designed in Basel in 1957 by Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoffman, Helvetica is perhaps the world’s most popular font family and can be found on anything from New York subway signage to Apple’s iPhone operating system.
German industrial designer Martin Drechsel was challenged with transferring the essence of Helvetica to a watch and the result is the Mondaine Helvetica, which is available to buy in three styles or “weights”: Light, Regular and Bold.
The text, date and indexes on the watch face are set in Helvetica, while its lugs are based on the typeface’s famous number ‘1′ digit.
Mondaine Helvetica is Swiss made and features a 38mm stainless steel case, a leather strap and a quartz movement.
|Case material||Stainless steel|
|Lens||Anti refletive and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal|
|Mechanism||Swiss made quartz Ronda 715|
