Mondaine Chronograph with Night Vision

A bold yet sleek statement, the Mondaine Official Swiss Railways Watch Sport II has the classic Mondaine award winning design with the highest technology Swiss Chronograph (stopwatch) movement and Tritium Night View Illumination. It is the perfect combination of style and functionality.

The Sport II has a 42 millimeter brushed stainless steel case highlighted with a black PVD fixed bezel that is decorated with six polished stainless steel screws. It is available in two dial choices, either black or white with opposite color hands and the signature red stopwatch sweep second hand. The continuous sweep second subdial and the 30 minute elapse time subdial also have red hands.

As you can see, the hands and dial have tritium illumination for perfect night illumination. In addition the watch features a large double window date display that is easy to read at a glance, yet adds to the classic design motif.

The classic simple and straightforward design of Mondaine Watches is considered a work of great modern art. Mondaine Watches are collected by museums throughout the world. For example, Mondaine is the official watch of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

The simple design, the unmistakable easy-to-read face, distinctive hands and the famous red seconds hand have made the Mondaine collection successful the world over. In 1944, Hans Hilfiker, a Swiss Engineer and Designer and employee of the Federal Swiss Railways, created a clock, which has become known as the Official Swiss Railways Clock. It is amazing just how long this design has endured and now it appears to take a place in the eternal hall of fame along side other well known design icons such as the Coca-Cola bottle, the Mercedes star, the Toblerone packaging, or the design of the US dollar bill.
