Why does the second hand stop after each minute for two seconds?
unique feature of the Swiss Railway (SBB) Clock to ensure smooth and
absolutely precise departures of Swiss trains on the full minute for the
last 70 years. An ingenious design by a Swiss engineer employed by SBB,
that ensured train punctuality would become a visible concept across
the globe. A timepiece that ticks off the minute at 58 seconds continues
to charm and intrigue; Swiss watchmaker Mondaine has incorporated this
unique motion within its Mondaine - SBB/Official Swiss Railway Watch.
fascinating execution of “stop2go”, like on the original clock,
features the famous red second hand that turns full circle in 58 seconds
and then waits at 12 o’clock for the black minute hand to move on,
before jumping one marker forwards, starting its next rotation. Two
seconds which sometimes can change our life?
designer Martin Drechsel, to come up with a design for the new watch. As
a tribute to its industrial background he framed the stainless steel
case with two matt-brushed stainless steel braces, fading to the horns
to fit the strap. The crown has been built as a functional switch for
easy time setting of the new and unique movement, which was developed by
Mondaine, to ensure clear visibility of the 12 o’clock second stop and
iconic dial. The crystal is made from scratch resistant anti-reflective
coated sapphire glass.
A true statement for the wrist with a
diameter of 41 mm and striking case design, the soft black strap made
from natural leather completes this Swiss Made timepiece.
