Mondaine adds three new black and white models to its minimalist Neo chronograph series. Each offers a variation of a classic panda-syle dial, and all retain the Mondaine red-dot seconds hand as seen on clocks at all Swiss railway stations.  

These 41mm quartz chronographs feature brushed steel cases that frame the classic three-sub-dial chronograph layout on each watch. One model is a classic Panda, with dark sub-dials amid a white primary dial, a second is all white while the third is a ‘reverse-panda’ dial, with white sub-dials amid a black primary dial. The latter example features white markers to extend visibility.

Each watch is also made ultra-visible with Mondaine’s generous application of SuperLuminova on the top of Neo’s broad hands.

Mondaine attaches each of the cases here to an unusual black grape leather strap. The watchmaker has replaced all its leather straps with vegan leather examples, with this type made from organic waste from wine production. All three watches are water resistant to fifty meters.

Price: $495.
