n the mid 1980s watch brand Mondaine licensed the right to use the iconic clock face designs in wristwatches. In 2013 Mondaine finally captures the two second delay in a new watch called the Stop2Go.

I picked up a Mondaine Sportline Alarm watch in black recently. I’d known about the “Swiss Railways” watch company before, but never took the opportunity to own one.
