We are enhancing watch functionality with contactless payment system

Mondaine continues to innovate with new Near Field Communication (NFC) contactless payment technology. A number of Mondaine watches will be imbued with a Mondaine PayChip™, designed to offer convenient and efficient transactions at contactless payment points. The celebrated Mondaine Helvetica No1 Smart watch is a natural and confident starting point for the PayChip™ installation, however Mondaine is also offering this technology with several other Mondaine models. These versions are sold at the same price as those without this facility.

Choosing the Helvetica font as muse, with its quintessentially Swiss values and style, has enabled to create a time-tested yet harmonious watch collection. Just like the type font Mondaine Helvetica is discreet, yet strong in the conviction of providing efficient time-keeping in a tempered recognizable form. The font translated to a watch design is something that is incredibly simple at fist glance, but which has little quirks that are only noticed when studying the watch. The Helvetica number 1 with its famous curved crossbar has been used as model for the lugs.

stop2go – From the Station to the Wrist

stop2go – From the Station to the Wrist

For 70 years, the legendary 2 second pause on the Official Swiss Railway (SBB) clocks has fascinated travelers at railway stations across Switzerland. Once every minute, the second hand pauses at the 12 o’clock position, creating the illusion of a stop in time – 2 seconds of stillness and then a jump forward, with the second hand starting its next 58 second rotation. Mondaine has brought this magical moment from the railway station to the wrist with its newest introduction, the Mondaine Official Swiss Railways stop2go watch.

The moment when the second hand stands still and then the minute hand jumps forward is something that people who have seen it will not soon forget. Mondaine’s Official Swiss Railway (SBB) stop2go watch made its debut at Baselworld in 2013, wowing visitors and underscoring Mondaine’s place as one of the “Top 10 Swiss Watch” brands.
