Stop2Go by Mondaine at Dezeen Watch Store

Dezeen Watch Store: the second hand of the new Stop2Go watch by Mondaine pauses at the top for two seconds, a feature of Swiss railway clocks that helps trains always leave on time.

Stop2Go incorporates a unique time keeping feature that pays tribute to the mechanism of Swiss railway clocks. The sweeping red second hand completes a full revolution in 58 seconds, then waits for two seconds at the 12 o’clock position, allowing the minute hand to move on before the next rotation starts.

Designer Martin Drechsel paid tribute to the watch's industrial origins with a 41mm stainless steel case that fixes to the leather strap with steel braces. The easy-to-read, minimal design places emphasis on the markings and the distinctive red hand, which resembles a railway guard’s signalling disc.

The crown was developed by Mondaine specifically for the Stop2Go timepiece and functions like a switch, twisted to adjust the time.

The original Swiss Railway Clock was designed over 70 years ago by Zurich-born engineer Hans Hilfiker and has become a Swiss design classic, included in twentieth century design collections at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Design Museum in London.

Mondaine has been producing watches inspired by the original design since the mid-1980s when the brand was granted an official license from the Federal Swiss Railway.

          Hi Pat,

          We currently have two pieces in stock, however I couldn’t guarantee how long they’ll stay there for. They’ve been incredibly popular.

          Kind regards,
