HONORING THE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF THE SWISS RAILWAY CLOCK DESIGN
The Federal Swiss Railway clock is an icon of modern time-telling. In the years since its 1944 release, it has achieved a particularly beloved place in global design recognition. Schweizerische Bundesbahnen (SBB) engineer Hans Hilfiker imagined the original—which would come to represent the precision of the transport system. Since 1986, Swiss watch brand Mondaine has been the official licensee. With an original clock blueprint, Mondaine has minimized the design and applied it to wristwatches with authenticity. To honor the 75th anniversary of the clock, we have released two special edition iterations of the Classic.
