This Mondaine Desk Clock is Inspired by a Classic Swiss Design

Sure, your iPhone tells the time.


While your iPhone is a perfectly adequate time-telling device, those design-obsessed among us tend to gravitate toward something a bit more refined to do the same job. Since the 1980s, Mondaine has held the license from the Swiss Federal Railways to produce clocks and watches based on the Official Swiss Railway Clock, designed in 1944 by engineer Hans Hifiker. Over the years, they’ve produced numerous iterations of the classic Swiss model, which can often be found for sale in design boutiques such as the MoMA Design Store.

If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your desk, right now you can pick up a Mondaine Railways Tube Desk Clock for $75, a $25 savings off the common Amazon price. Available in either black or white, the clock features a simple, Bauhaus-inspired dial, stainless steel case with a mineral crystal and quartz movement that includes day and date functions. Additionally, the clock itself is even removable from the tube-shaped case and can be used as a travel clock.
