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.
