Mondaine Helvetica “Homage to type letters” at Monotype on the Typo Berlin
Indra Kupferschmid created this this Special Edition, which is is dedicated to the traditional printing craft. For book printing, the typesetter in the case room compiles the texts for printing using individual letters. Letters or types are components of a lead typeface. The fonting scheme defines the number of types, which are supplied by the type foundry in the corresponding sizes (point), in a typeset.
The repeated characters, subtle integrated as blind embossing into the logo block of the dial, are a direct reference and quote to this this old tradition.
Choosing the Helvetica® font as a muse, with its quintessentially Swiss values and style, has enabled the creation of a time-tested yet harmonious watch collection.
