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.

Ratings and Reviews
readily readable analog clock
Readily visible from a distance, even on the smaller screens of iPhone 5s, SE, etc., iOS devices. Great for chrono synching.
We can temporarily affix a device running this app by the console, etc., and from over by the release levers, etc., still see the precise, progressive position of its second hands, even when it’s not practical or possible to read a wristwatch.
Besides, within reason — almost no matter when you go, CH always feels like CH. Timeless, almost like being able to go home. So this app can also be a bit of comforting nostalgia when making it through something seems rather dicey.
Stop, to watch!
Easy to read dial- you can “see” the time! A great app design: interesting how you can swipe the current clock left and two other clocks display with two different time zones- current and your choice. Stop2Go is cool to view: the two-second leap of the minute hand - at the top-of-the-hour, is fun to view! App even stays on in portrait/landscape mode - great “screensaver!”
Mondaine SSB Clock Face by Coconut Ron
I love this Mondaine SSB Swiss Railway Clock/Watch face. Beautifully designed and looks awesome on my iPhone 8 and iPad mini. One thing I would like to see added to this app is to be able to change the background color other than white! I hope Mondaine will do this in a future update! I give Mondaine SSB my 5 Coconuts.
