This is a stylish, easy-to-read, casual watch and my wife, who I bought it for, is very happy with it. My only caveat is that the date mechanism requires you to reset the date at the end of every month. Even if a month has 31 days, you need to reset the date because otherwise, the next day will show as the 32nd, then the 33rd, etc. - all the way up to the 39th. My wife likes it so much that we'll keep it and deal with the minor hassle of monthly date adjustments, but it's something you should know before you order it.
I've wanted a Mondaine watch for some time and when my last watch finally gave up I decided that it was time to go for one. I wanted a watch I could wear every day, was clear and easy to read and included a date function. This fits the bill perfectly and it is just the right size for me - the face is approximately 1 inch / 2.5cm across.
It's a stylish design classic based on the Official Swiss Railways Watch created in 1944 by Hans Hilfiker. The black hour markers are slightly raised on the surface of the watch face and the distinctive red second-hand sets the design off well.
I'm rather clumsy and I often get a watch and then scrape and scuff it the first time of wearing. I've had this watch for a few weeks now and it's still in pristine condition despite my best clumsy efforts! I'm really chuffed with it; it's a quality and stylish watch.
Nice, big, clear dial. As it says "big date" really is big. No problem at all in seeing the date. My only thing is that the band is not quite as red as depicted in the photo - more of a brownish red. Still, overall a very nice product.
