There's something about a cleanly constructed watch that elevates not only an outfit but also an attitude—and the Mondaine SBB Essence does both. The latest offering from Swiss icon Mondaine exemplifies the brand's minimalist approach to watchmaking, emphasizing functional simplicity over fidgety bells and whistles. With its signature red second hand and an easy-to-read numberless black and white face, there's no mistaking a Mondaine timepiece.
While the Essence displays an undoubted elegance, especially in this smooth black-on-black colorway, its appeal is more than aesthetic. The Essence is made using renewable materials including Rizinus (castor oil) for its case, natural rubber for the strap and recycled PET bottles for the multi-purpose pouch it arrives in. A fixture in Switzerland's train stations since 1944, the famous Mondaine face has since become a global brand and the street-ready Essence watch will keep you punctual, whether you're commuting to work on the infamous NYC subway or meeting up for a ramen date across the world in Tokyo. Use coupon code "THECUFFCO" to get 15% off the watch until December 31st.
