Mondaine Official Swiss Railway watch FOUNDED IN: 1735 (by Jehan-Jacques Blancpain) PRICE: €150 – €650 A stand out watch due to it’s original design. Anyone that has been in Switzerland and some parts of Germany would recognise this design from those huge train station watches. It is not just about design though. Swiss train stations rely not just on their watches, but also technology to keep the time in sync. INTERESTING STORY Mondaine has threatened to sue Apple for copying their watch design and using it on iPhones. Apple has settled out of court and ended up buying a licence for 17 million Euros.
