Best known as the brand to feature the Official Swiss Railways clock design on their watch face, Mondaine debuted a new series in 2014 — the Helvetica No. 1 — to much acclaim. Employing an equally clean, classic touch, punctuated by the use of the font Helvetica, it has already become a thoughtful, welcome addition to the world of Swiss watchmaking. At this year’s Baselworld, Mondaine tapped into another wealth of iconography: the NYC subway system. With the Helvetica New York Edition, accent notes from the train lines’ official Pantone colors grace the black leather strap. It’s a punch of personality to the stainless steel black IP-plated piece.
Mondaine’s Helvetica New York Edition will be available in Fall 2015 with prices ranging between $475 and $560 — via Cool Hunting
