Mondaine watches

Dezeen Watch Store: two new timepieces by Swiss brand Mondaine have arrived at Dezeen Watch Store, including a smaller version of the popular Evo Quartz and a stainless steel pocket watch.

The watches are inspired by an iconic railway clock designed by Zurich-born engineer Hans Hilfiker in 1944, which became an important symbol of the Swiss rail network's punctuality.

Mondaine's first interpretation of Hilfiker's clock was released in 1986 as the Classic and kept most of the original design features, including the famous red seconds ticker.

This was later followed by the Evo series, which removed the date window from Classic and came with a larger case.

Evo Quartz Ladies is a downscaled version of the Evo with a case that measures 26mm in diameter, and is now available with a metal bracelet or polished leather strap.

It also features a domed mineral glass lens that magnifies the watch's white face, making it easier to tell the time.

It is the second pocket watch in the Dezeen Watch Store collection, joining the MMT Calendar by Hong Kong-based brand MMT.

    26mm is a great size, for either sex. Today’s watch industry doesn’t recognise the fact that there are men who want small timepieces. I know of one renowned sartorialist who consequently wears a ladies’ classic timepiece.
