The Mondaine Apple Watch face. Unfortunately, I did not receive an email from Apple stating the there is a new watch face from the Swiss watch manufacturer Mondaine. The reason, I am writing this post is to express my feelings and expectations regarding having a Mondaine watch face on the Apple Watch.
What is so special about Mondaine? It is the company that manufacturers the iconic Swiss rail watches. You might have seen the wristwatch edition as well. Yes, they do make wristwatches with the same design philosophy as the rail watches.
The most special watch from Mondaine is the Stop2go watch. It has a very similar system to Swiss rail watches. The second arm completes a full circle in 58 seconds and waits at 12 for two seconds. The reason for this is that each Swiss rail watch is synchronised every minute, and in order to apply this process, each Swiss rail watch waits two seconds at the 12 for a signal from the control room.
Unfortunately, the Stop2go cannot receive a signal from the control room, but if Mondaine introduces a watch face for the Apple Watch that is the same as the Stop2go, it will be an amazing experience!
