If you're looking for precision, Mondaine is a smart choice. Mondaine features the unique and impressively punctual design created in 1944 by Swiss inventor and Federal Railways employee Hans Hilfiker. Determined to find a more reliable timepiece than electrically powered clocks, Hilfiker created a timepiece that comes up to the 12 oGÇÖclock position after just 58 seconds: It then awaits release from an automatic electrical impulse, which is sent at every full minute. When the black minute hand jumps to the next position, the red second hand then begins a new rotation GÇô ensuring synchronization of every clock in the Swiss rail system. Mondaine brought this legendary design to the wrist in 1986, and the Mondaine Official Swiss Railways watch has since become known as an example of excellent 20th century design.
