The Classic SBB

I got a chance to see this new collection at BaselWorld back in March.  Contrary to popular belief, for many of us who write about watches, it is not all about high-dollar, high complication fervor.

What makes the latest moves by Mondaine special is their adherence to their design codes while branching out and offering a twist to long established collections.  I have always liked the SBB series, but I have, at times, found it a bit hide-bound in it's look and feel.  So with the release of the SBB Essence (same great look with wonderfully earth-friendly materials) and this new Classic SBB in three new color options, it seems that Mondaine is not sitting on its past but using it as a base and moving forward.

Available in two sizes, a smaller 36 mm and a 40 mm.  The movement is a Ronda Quartz, and is water resistant to 30 meters/100 feet.
