Mondaine Helvetica No1 Bold
“Choosing the Helvetica font as a muse, with its quintessentially Swiss values and style, has enabled the creation of a time-tested yet harmonious watch collection. Just like the type font, Mondaine Helvetica is discreet, yet strong in the conviction of providing efficient time-keeping in a tempered recognizable form. The font translated to a watch design is something that is incredibly simple at first glance, but which has little quirks that are only noticed when studying the watch. The date aperture is slightly off its traditional central axis position to fit in with the typography of the dial. The Helvetica number “1” with its famous curved crossbar has been used as model for the lugs. And sometimes you need a bit of bold, to make it a statement on your wrist.”
