MONDAINE has launched a new range of its iconic Classic watch with vegan grape leather straps. Based in Switzerland, the company has been known worldwide for its iconic “Official Swiss Railways Watch / SBB”.
MONDAINE is a carbon neutral watch brand. Made with high-quality composite grape material, it has created a range of upcycled watches without an increase in price, which still retain the classically stylish look of the original MONDAINE timepieces first created in 1986.
Collaborating with Italian manufacturer VEGEA™, MONDAINE’s new vegan grape leather straps are expertly crafted to ensure they possess the high-quality look and feel of MONDAINE’s original leather straps. This is achieved through an innovative upcycling process by utilizing the organic waste of wine production, such as the stems, seeds, and skins of the grapes, to make grape leather.
The result is a particularly soft, comfortable to wear and 100% vegan watch strap, which beautifully complements the best-selling MONDAINE Classic Collection timepieces.
MONDAINE’s vegan grape leather timepieces are available in a variety of case sizes, in brushed or polished stainless steel, and in either brown or black vegan grape leather, featuring the striking red lining MONDAINE has become known for.
Swiss Made, each timepiece also retains the iconic MONDAINE red crown, red seconds hand, and white dial.
The entire Mondaine Group is one of the few global watch brands to be 100% CO2-neutral. All the watches made by the family-owned company are produced with up to 80% solar energy in its factory in Biberist.
MONDAINE Classic watches are available now at Johnlewis.com, Cwsellors.co.uk, Francisandgaye.co.uk, Firstclasswatches.co.uk and Simpkinsjewellers.co.uk. The retail price range is £189-£209.
