A unique element of the Swiss Railway Clocks is that at the top of the minute, the seconds hand pauses for two seconds, and then the minute hand jumps ahead. Part of a centralized method of syncing all of the clocks, it’s a quirky detail that you could only experience at a Swiss train station. Well, thanks to Mondaine’s Stop2Go technology, you can now experience it in your home.
Thanks to a bluetooth connected “smart” movement, the Mondaine Stop2Go clock is able to simulate the hanging seconds and jumping minute hand of the Swiss clocks, while maintaining perfect time, as it’s synced to your phone. Should you grow weary of the Stop2Go action, you can just turn it off, and the clock will just be a classic Mondaine keeping perfect time. For people who want the truest Swiss Railway experience in their home or office, and like to keep very precise time, this is definitely the clock for you.

In 1944, Hans Hilfikker, inspired by the Bauhaus movement, designed one of the most iconic dials of all time. A designer and engineer working for the Federal Swiss Railways, this dial became the “Official Swiss Railways Clock”. A symbol of accuracy and efficiency, these bold, purposeful clocks are still found to this day throughout Switzerland. In 1986 Mondaine obtained the rights to use this design in wrist watches and home goods, elevating this iconic Swiss dial onto the global stage. Since then, the Mondaine watches and clocks have remained true to their source material, becoming icons in their own right.
