The Helvetica No1 Regular Watch with Silver Stainless Steel mesh band by Mondaine is unshowy, neutral and incredibly simple at first glance and explores another classic Swiss design element. Helvetica is perhaps the most popular and widespread font ever created. Timeless, simple and concise. Originally known as Haas Grotesk, Helvetica was created at the Haas Type Foundry near Basel in 1957 by Swiss typeface designer Max Miedinger and Haas business manager Eduard Hoffmann.
The text, date and indexes on the watch face are all set in the Helvetica font and its lugs are based on the typeface’s number “1” with its famous curved crossbar. To better compliment the typography of the dial, the date aperture was moved off its traditionally central axis position.
