Now you can have the iconic Swiss railway clock on your wrist with the clean and minimalist Mondaine stop2go wristwatch. But don’t let the ultra legible design fool you, the Stop 2 Go gets its name from the innovative way the smooth second hand literally stops at the 12 and waits for the minute hand to jump before proceeding. It’s really fun to watch, and reminds you that simple doesn’t mean dumb.
Official Swiss Railways Watch
There are a lot of Mondaine watches on the market, but this is the large 41mm Stop2Go model that was the original Official Swiss Railways watch. Other Mondaine pieces will have a steel back or simply say “Mondaine” across the caseback – that’s why many sellers aren’t showing photos of the back. This back of the timepiece we have for sale features the Official Swiss Railways stamp. Check the caseback, this is the one you want!

In Mondaine’s Own Words:
“For more than 100 years the Swiss Federal Railways have been famous for punctuality and precision. Historically the train station manager used a special red Paddle to announce to passengers and train conductors that the train is about to depart. This red Paddle with its special shape is also the second hand of the Official Swiss Railways Clock…
The fascinating execution of stop2go, like on the original [Swiss railway] clock, features the famous red second hand that turns full circle in 58 seconds and then waits at 12 o’clock for the minute hand to move on, before jumping one marker forwards, starting its next rotation. Designed by German designer Martin Drechsel, the stop2go case features a stainless steel cylinder with two matte-brushed stainless steel braces custom fitted for the strap. The crown, which was specially developed by Mondaine to act as a functional switch, easily sets the hands to the correct time.” – Mondaine
