Helvetica watch straps. Mondaine launched the Helvetica range of watches a couple of years ago. Quite a development, and not without a bit of risk. The reception has however been amazing and the range is becoming more and more popular.
The design inspiration is the Helvetica font. Look at the number 1 in the font (this isn’t!). Look at the stanchions, or lugs, holding the strap and you will see the numeral replicated here. Look at the watch more closely and you will see clear and bold design, easy to read watch faces, and an elegance that speaks of Bauhaus, and all that is good about perfect “form follows function” design.
Identify your strap.
- If you know the number of the watch (it’s in this format – AA.ANNNN.AA) [A = Alpha, N = Numeric] then key the middle 5 digits into the search box.
If this doesn’t work, go on to Brexit plan b, below
- In choosing which strap you have, look at the strap and match the description with those below. You will almost certainly need a width to select your strap, this is embossed on the tail end of your watch strap on the reverse.
