Summary: If you're shopping carefully, it will take you a while to sort through all the variants of the men's Railway Watches that Mondaine makes. I recommend going to the manufacturer's (e.g. Mondaine) main website to view the different models such as Classic, Sport, and Evo. Beyond those slight design variations, some of the optional features available include case diameter size, brushed and/or polished stainless steel, luminescence, and day/date etc.
Summary: I bought my men's Mondaine Swiss Railway watch 2 years ago. I first saw it in London at Harrods and was fascinated as I recognized it from the European Railway Station time pieces. I knew I had to have it. I didn't buy it there because of the exchange rate and the VISA transaction charge so I bought it when I came home and it has served me very well. I get so many compliments on it. It wears with any attire, from formal to casual.
Summary: I have been trying to reach out to Kenmar Watches who sold me the Mondaine watch since we purchased it. The watch is not keeping time. Has only been worn twice.

However, after about a year of owning it, it started to give me trouble (running slow, freezing, etc). I sent it back to the repair center several times and, after the last time when they returned it to me with a crack on the glass face, I decided to save my shipping and handling and only wear it as a bracelet.
Summary: Finally, a classic watch that I can see the precise time & date e-a-s-i-l-y without squinting. If only it was available with a stainless-steel-mesh-wrist-strap I'd give it a 5 plus rating! One day the Swiss (hopefully soon) will wake-up to the on-going smelly problem of leather watch straps & respond & in doing so thank me for the tip & reward me accordingly with the very first stainless-steel-mesh-wrist-strap fresh off their assembly lines as a gift & token of their...
