Mondaine Essence 32 white dial black strapThe Official Swiss Railways Watch
Mondaine is a Switzerland based watch company doing business in watches since 1951. Mondaine is famous as the producer of the official Swiss railway watches and became so popular that it needs no further introduction. The Mondaine watches are so specific that they truly receive global respect as a timepiece. According to Dr. Benedikt Weibel, CEO of Swiss Federal Railways, Mondaine is the official and exclusive Railway Watch. The simple design, the unmistakable easy-to-read face, distinctive hands and the famous red seconds hand have made the Mondaine Collection successful all over the world.
With its new model series “essence”, Mondaine goes completely new ways than in the traditional watch industry. The goal they have worked towards in the development of the watch has been to use the most environmentally friendly materials possible. The result has been 4 models that stand out both in appearance and material choice.
The main elements in the watch case itself are oil from the seeds of the ricunus plant, so-called castor seeds (41%). The second element is glass (30%). The result is a very robust watch case that will keep the watch virtually scratch-free for many years.
The strap is made of 38% natural rubber, which makes the strap soft and very comfortable to wear. The strap also does not attract moisture like a leather strap. If necessary, you can only wipe the strap with a damp cloth.
The watch is delivered in a soft and thick case that is made 100% from recycled plastic bottles. The case fits as a spectacle case or it can be used to protect the mobile phone.
