Mondaine is expanding its nature theme for autumn with six golden tone models from the SBB Classic collection with dials in “Deep Ocean Blue,” “Forest Green,” and “Good Gray.” Representing the sustainable orientation of Mondaine — and its parent company, the Mondaine Group — which operates in a comprehensively CO2-neutral manner, these novelties are available with various textile straps crafted from recycled PET bottles, or a gold-tone stainless steel bracelet.
The Swiss watchmaker is famous for its iconic train station clock design, a globally recognized aesthetic it has successfully adapted for its contemporary wristwatches. Focused on superb legibility and a truly ageless style, Mondaine’s Classic collection is characterized by a high-contrast dial, large rectangular hands and indices, and a lollipop seconds hand in red that has become an icon in itself.
This latest collection features muted dial colors that respond beautifully to the aforementioned high-contrast approach to watch design: The dark green and deep blue add immense depth, while the “Good Grey” stays true to its name and carries a lighter touch that will perfectly complement any outfit. A closer look reveals that the dials exhibit a subtle brushed texture to further enhance the contrast between the polished hands and indices, and their backdrop — a sophisticated technique typical of watch designs perfected over decades.
The Mondaine SBB Classic Collection’s six golden tone models are available in cases 36mm or 40mm-wide, all crafted from 316L stainless steel — the alloy most frequently used on steel luxury watches — and treated with an IP gold plating and a brushed finish. The elegantly narrow, straight lugs are 18mm or 20mm apart, making it easy and convenient to mix any of these novelties up with a new strap or bracelet. Speaking of straps, the recycled textile straps have a cork lining, the ideal choice that meets both comfort and sustainability requirements. The IP gold-plated mesh bracelet takes the golden look to its fullest, making for a shimmering exterior that works all the better to highlight each of the three carefully defined dial colors.
Inside each of these Mondaine SBB Classic Collection watches beats a reliable and highly precise Ronda 513RL Swiss quartz movement, safeguarded by a solid stainless steel caseback. Every model has a water resistance rating of 30 meters (100 feet, 3 atmospheres). Mondaine is one of the few watch companies worldwide to be completely CO2-neutral. Up to 80% solar energy is used for the production of its watches in the factory in Biberist, Switzerland and the family-owned company develops alternative and ecologically sound raw materials for watchmaking and resource-saving new production processes. For example, a central theme is high-quality plant-based alternatives to animal leather to produce watch straps.
Made with an unshakable dedication to sustainability, Mondaine watches represent Swiss quality in design and craftsmanship and undergo strict quality controls. Each watch comes with an international guarantee of two years. The Mondaine SBB Classic Collection’s six golden tone models are available now for $305-$320 USD for the textile strap versions and $320-$335 USD for those on the gold plated bracelet.
