Details | Iconic Swiss Brand Mondaine Launches New Watches at Mr Porter

Apple reportedly paid $21 million to license the design of Mondaine's iconic Swiss-made timepieces in 2012, but Mr Porter will sell you one of the brand's watches for a whole lot less.
The online retailer will start carrying four of Mondaine's watches today, from $245 to $725, including a model that features its nifty stop2go movement. The second hand on that watch in particular travels around the clean dial in 58 seconds, then stops at 12 o'clock for another second. An electronic impulse then pushes the minute hand forward and starts the second hand's circuit around the dial all over again. This trick—and it is a trick, not a flaw—helps the watch keep precise time.
