Mondaine BackLight TechnologyWednesday, 22. March 2017
Noticing that in the dark, the time of the distinctive dial could not be read, Mondaine began to seek a solution and as ever with Mondaine, the one it found was brilliant in its simplicity; to add luminous paint to the back side of the watch hands.
During daytime, the white dial reflects the light and charges the luminous foil attached to the back side of the hands. During the night, the luminous foil releases the light again, (the longevity of this light is dependent on how well the luminous paint is charged in daylight). The light is then reflected by the dial, releasing a shadow around the hands to make time easy to read.
