Sleek, bold… italic. Yes, I’m talking about a font and not just fashion. Who here is a fan of the ever fresh Helvetica typeface? Well there’s good news for you font feens, Mondaine has just released a new timepiece collection in ode to the iconic style, and I have partnered with them to give you a Mondaine watch review. Introducing the Helvetica No1 collection, a minimalist timepiece collection designed with a modern play on design. The collection itself is quite broad with a wide enough selection for every minimalist timepiece lover. You’ll find options in gold, silver, leather and mesh bands… even faces in different styles and designs.
Steering towards the direction of sleek style, I chose to review the 38mm Helvetica No1 Light. Simple and concise, it’s definitely the ideal for everyday wear with a clean, modern design and attention to details in the components. The rim of the face is in a muted brushed steel with a coordinating mesh band. The face itself is in a soft, eggshell white with minimal components aside from the subtle typography design on the lower right side. The back of the face is engraved with the timepieces special features like the Swiss made stamp, stainless steal material, sapphire crystal face and water resistant design.
When selecting minimalist fashion pieces, I always recommend paying attention to the details, as this is what will keep your wardrobe collection refined rather than simple. If you haven’t filled your space for an essential silver timepiece, this one is definitely worth a look.
The piece came packaged impeccably with a canvas-covered Helvetica book in a large flat box, making a big impression on delivery. It could be a great gift idea for someone in design, or just someone who appreciates minimal style.
