The Swiss railway clock was designed in 1944 by Hans Hilfiker, a Swiss engineer, for use by the Swiss Federal Railways as a station clock. In 1953, Hilfiker added a red second hand in the shape of a railway guard's signalling disc. Most Mondaine watches are heavily influenced by classical Swiss railway clocks. Mondaine is the official Swiss railways watch following the design originated in 1944. Aspens Jewellers are official resellers for Mondaine Watches UK and offer a large range of both Mondaine ladies watches and Mondaine gents watches.
