This competition is now closed.

A design classic - distinct, clean and immediately identifiable thanks to its signature red seconds hand.

The Mondaine Swiss railways watch is renowned for its heritage and strong identity. It offers arguably the most recognisable face of Swiss timekeeping, and like its luxury counterparts always stays true to the core design that it is famous for. In 1944, Hans Hilfiker, a Swiss engineer and designer and employee of the Federal Swiss Railways, created the clock that has become known as the Official Swiss Railways Clock. It has become an icon of 20th century design, thanks to its simplicity and distinctiveness.

This watch faithfully replicates the original Swiss railways clock that keeps time at over 3,000 railway station platforms across Switzerland, and is revered for its iconic design across the world.

We have one Mondaine Swiss Railways watch to give away, or they are available to purchase from the Independent Shop for just £125 inc. P&P - click here to buy.
