My husband absolutely love this watch and has gotten so many compliments when he wears it!!! The quality is impeccable and looks much more expensive than its price. He's had it for a year and didn't have any problems or defects with this watch. The stainless steel mesh bracelet is very easy to put on and off. The fit is very lightweight and comfortable. It's very shiny and not too big. We highly recommend this watch to anyone looking to buy an everyday work watch and it's also great for special occasions.
I had never even heard of Mondaine until browsing through a catalog from high-end watch retailer, Tourneau, who had a this model pictured (only with a black leather band rather than steel mesh). The look of the face grabbed my attention immediately. It is iconic and very appealing in its minimalism and clean look. The red dot at the end of the second hand is a small touch that stands out in a huge way.
Tourneau advertised this watch at around $500 and I would have probably paid it if I hadn't done my homework and checked Amazon first. At $150, this was a no-brainer. Now I'm happy every time I look down at my left wrist.
Yeah, if you have medium to large wrists, you may not want to wear this one, as it is 35mm and very thin. It's almost as small as a woman's watch! Actually, if you were to tell someone this, they might believe it. Still, the style is definitely intended for guys. It's based on the Swiss railroad clock and a lot of guys love trains and anything train-related. It should also satisfy anyone with artistic tendencies because of its minimalist, pseudo-Bauhaus look. The only issue with this version of the watch is the metal mesh wrist band, which takes a little tool to adjust it. I don't trust myself to do it, so I take it to a watch repairman to adjust it to my size. I have small wrists, so this watch is absolutely perfect for me. Lastly, this draws attention and positive comments from just about everyone at the office; it's that noticeable. As always, in this price range, you're mostly getting style over function, but, man, this thing has style in spades.
