In look for another work of art, close to its long time (since 1986) well known SBB Swiss Railways watch, toward the finish of a year ago Mondaine presented its Helvetica line.
A shrewd advance to utilize Helvetica, which might be the name of the most pervasive textual style around, as the name of a watch assortment. It’s said that Helvetica is a text style of such reasonableness and excellence that it is both omnipresent and something of a religion. Also, Helvetica, Latin for Swiss, is connected to this Alpine country nearly as immovably as the SBB Swiss Railways.
It was dependent upon architect to make an interpretation of the Helvetica text style into the watch plan. This brought about an unfathomably basic plan from the start, however which has little eccentricities that are possibly seen when you truly study the watch. The most evident reference in the plan of the watch to the Helvetica number 1 is the demonstrating of the lugs.
Recently the Helvetica line, which comprises of 15 models – from Helvetica Light, Regular to Bold – was added with the Mondaine Helvetica No.1 Horological Smartwatch. A week ago Mondaine welcomed us to investigate that watch.
On the elements of the Smartwatch we can be very short here. Mondaine utilizes precisely the same MotionX module as the one in the Frederique Constant Horological Smartwatch. Our supporter Balazs completed an active survey before on all MotionX capacities is his article here .
Mondaine educated us that the corresponding app on your telephone or potentially tablet was plan shrewd somewhat adjusted to the style of Mondaine, anyway the elements of the module were not changed for Mondaine as are actually equivalent to on the Frederique Constant.
A further component is the exceptionally planned case back of the Mondaine Helvetica No.1 Horological Smartwatch, serving as a reverberation box to make the alert sound louder.
The Mondaine Helvetica No.1 Horological Smartwatch, part of the Helvetica Bold arrangement, is presented in three varieties. An exemplary brushed steel packaging, a gold plated packaging and dark covered one.
