Description

Timeless, simple and iconic.

Ingenuity and simplicity are the elements which often distinguish an attractive piece of design from a truly iconic design classic. At Mondaine we focus on what really matters, uniting distinguished and timeless Swiss design with innovation, high craftsmanship and functionality providing a lifetime of reliability.

Who else but a Swiss engineer would design an ingenious clock that ensured train punctuality and would become a visible concept to everyone in Switzerland and abroad? A timepiece that ticks off a minute in only 58 seconds at first baffled people and continues to charm them today, but this unique feature of the Swiss Railway Clock has ensured smooth and absolutely precise departures of Swiss trains on the full minute for the last 70 years.

Easily one of the most recognizable watch dials in the world, Mondaine SBB watches are styled after the classic railway clocks found all over Switzerland.

In fact more than 3,000 original clocks still grace Swiss train stations. (It was in 1944 that Hans Hilfiker, engineer, designer and employee of the Federal Swiss Railways, created an easily readable clock that fast became the Official Swiss Railways Clock.) The iconic look has been the blueprint for Mondaine's watches since 1986.

After few years, we remained faithful. So happy to see you are back in the app store. Congratulations on making it here again!!

beautiful, but dimming is still inaccurate

Ignatius_J_Reilly

First off, the retina graphics and improved motion of the clock are totally beautiful. But somewhere along the way the dimming at sunset feature got kind of broken.

The previous (pre-retina) version just used the sunrise/sunset times for Zürich, Switzerland — localized for the user's time zone. If you were on a similar latitude to Switzerland, it was reasonably close to your local daylight hours.

But in this update, I have no idea (nor is there *any* real documentation) how the app is supposedly figuring out when to switch day/night displays. It's a solid hour or more off in my location (New York). I'd just as soon go back to Zürich time like before — or offer some kind of control as to how this is figured.

It's frustrating, because this is a very cool clock, but the dimming feature is quite roughtly implemented so far.

Nice, and Yes the all Euro company needs to fix

I will keep it and use it, even though the Dim setting is on most of the day as others have mentioned. I believe they coded 12am and 12pm wrong. Either way I am waiting for the fix. With all the new attention since Apple "borrowed" the design for their own uses, this app is probably getting more attention since the iphone5 did not have this nice clock by default. Hey Fegi. Open a English version of your WebSite and get to work on the update, please!
