Mondaine, makers of the iconic swiss railway inspired watch, have released a new model named the Simply Elegant which features a remarkably thin case design. After Basel this year it has become increasingly clear that “thin” is the new “oversized” and we think this is about as good as trends get. This new found popularity has not been lost on Mondaine as the new Simply Elegant is a svelte 6.2mm thick. Available in either 41mm or 36mm sizes with the choice of a black or white dial the new Simply Elegant will likely be a winner for the Mondaine brand. This quartz powered lightweight has an MSRP of roughly $420 USD but can be found online for less. We welcome this new found fascination with thin watches as they are infinitely more wearable and thin watches make great day-to-day timepieces.
