stop2go technology

The Magic Moment of the MONDAINE stop2go: why does the second hand stop after each minute for two seconds?

A unique feature of the Swiss Railway (SBB) Clock to ensure smooth and absolutely precise departures of Swiss trains on the full minute for the last 70 years. An ingenious design by a Swiss engineer employed by SBB, that ensured train punctuality would become a visible concept across the globe.

A timepiece that ticks off the minute at 58 seconds continues to charm and intrigue; Swiss watchmaker MONDAINE has incorporated this unique motion within its MONDAINE - SBB/Official Swiss Railway Watch.

Stop2go technology

The fascinating execution of “stop2go”, like on the original clock, features the famous red second hand that turns full circle in 58 seconds and then waits at 12 o’clock for the black minute hand to move on, before jumping one marker forwards, starting its next rotation. Two seconds which sometimes can change our life?

MONDAINE asked designer Martin Drechsel, to come up with a design for the new watch. As a tribute to its industrial background he framed the stainless steel case with two matt-brushed stainless steel braces, fading to the horns to fit the strap. The crown has been built as a functional switch for easy time setting of the new and unique movement, which was developed by MONDAINE, to ensure clear visibility of the 12 o’clock second stop and iconic dial. The crystal is made from scratch resistant anti-reflective coated sapphire glass.

A true statement for the wrist with a diameter of 41 mm and striking case design, the soft black strap made from natural leather completes this Swiss Made timepiece. 

A regular quartz watch runs with one motor to gear the hour, minute and seconds hand. The MONDAINE SBB stop2go movement needs 2 motors: one to turn the seconds hand and the 2nd motor drives the hour hand and inducts the minutes hand jump. An important hallmark of the Swiss station clock is the smooth drive of the red seconds hand; to convert this to quartz watch a special trick was needed. Instead of moving each second one step forward the seconds hand moves in 4 little paces every second. This makes the impression of a continuous gliding like seen on the Original on each Swiss


stop2go Watch Collection

The stop2go collection effortlessly blends style, functionality, and a touch of boldness. The watches feature the worldwide exclusive and unique stop2go movement. The glass on the dial is made from scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. While the white dial watches are equipped with BackLight technology, the black dial watches showcase Super-LumiNova® on top of the hands, both ensuring that time can be effortlessly read, regardless of the ambient light. All stop2go models come in a set with a ‘time setting pen’ to easily adjust time and align hands without the need of a crown. The collection has a practical interchangeable strap system making it very versatile and allowing you to create multiple unique looks without having to invest in several watches.

For more than 100 years the Swiss Federal Railways have been famous for punctuality and precision. Historically the train station manager used a special red Paddle to announce to passengers and train conductors that the train is about to depart. This red Paddle with its special shape is also the second hand of the Official Swiss Railways Clock.

MONDAINE’s original and authentic watch and clock collection captures this pristine and punctual look.

The product

MONDAINE BackLight Technology allows good visibility of the hands at night, without any disturbing visual effect of the design.


MONDAINE uses a thin foil coated with Swiss-made, extra strong Super-LumiNova® material that is used frequently in the watch industry, allowing long visibility at night.

How it works

As iconic as the Official Swiss Railways design has become, with its characteristic hands and the highly visible bold hour and minute markers creating a distinctive, strong picture that is perceived worldwide as a timeless Swiss classic, MONDAINE is proud to announce a new dimension to its formative design codes.

Noticing that in the dark, the time of the distinctive dial could not be read, MONDAINE began to seek a solution and as ever with MONDAINE, the one it found was brilliant in its simplicity; to add luminous paint to the back side of the watch hands.

During daytime, the white dial reflects the light and charges the luminous foil attached to the back side of the hands. During the night, the luminous foil releases the light again, (the longevity of this light is dependent on how well the luminous paint is charged in daylight). The light is then reflected by the dial, releasing a shadow around the hands to make time easy to read.

The outcome is that of a continual charge: the light, which the coated luminous (Super-LumiNova®) back side of the hands releases in the dark, is reflected onto the white dial, the light from the dial is reflected back to the luminous foil on the back side of the hands, continuously recharging the luminous material, creating a kind of perpetual glow.




Innovation and sustainability - right on time. Crafted with ecofriendly materials in every detail—from the case to the strap and packaging—our essence collection embodies sustainability without compromising style. We are proud to present what may be the most sustainable watches in the world. Our commitment to environmental responsibility is woven into every aspect of the essence collection. By using castor oil from the wonder tree, cork, and recycled PET bottles, we have transformed traditional watchmaking into a platform for iconic self expression and eco-conscious living.

In 2015, we developed a castor oil compound material in collaboration with BASF, which paved the way for the launch of our essence collection. This innovative material composition consists of 50% castor oil sourced from the wonder tree, 48% fossil oil, and 2% color pigments, enhancing both sustainability and performance in our strap designs.



Made from grapes – not only for wine-lovers

MONDAINE stands for innovation, Swissness and uncompromising sustainability. The entire Mondaine Group is one of the few global watch brands to be 100% CO2-neutral. In collaboration with a top Italian manufacturer, MONDAINE Watch Ltd is producing all the watch straps in the Classic collection, which were previously made of leather, from a new vegan grape leather. The high-quality composite grape material represents valuable upcycling without an increase in price and can be regarded as one of the plant-based alternatives to real leather of the future.

Vegan grape leather – chic, high-quality and meaningful

An innovative Italian manufacturer has successfully created an alternative to animal leather from the organic waste of wine production. Everything which cannot be used at the end of the wine-making process – namely the grape marc consisting of the stems, seeds and skins – is used to make grape leather. Genuine upcycling.

Components of grape composite material

27% vegan grape leather

50% recycled polyester

23% water-based polyurethane (more sustainable than traditional polyurethane as no chemical solvents involved in the production)
