The Mondaine Stop2Go has a unique movement, a timepiece that ticks off the minute at 58 seconds and then waits at 12 o’clock for the black minute hand to move on, before jumping one marker forwards, starting its next rotation.
The Stop2Go Swiss movement was developed exclusively for Mondaine over the past 4 years. The development was a complicated task as a regular quartz watch works with only one motor controlling the hands movement. The Mondaine stop2go has two synchronized motors; one to move the second hand, the other motor to release the minute hand jump and to turn the hour hand.

Mondaine are the official timekeeper of the Swiss Federal Railway and have created a wide range of timepieces based on their iconic design which can be seen over 3000 times across the Swiss railway network. Their design has graced the London Design Museum and New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Apple ipad and iphone users (iOS6) should be familiar with the clock face which led to Apple being sued for using the Swiss design without permission, proving the design icon has lost none of its appeal in the digital age.
