The Mondaine Helvetica Collection has been re-released with a New York subway theme. The Swiss watch company used its iconic design to incorporate a few subtle tributes to the Big Apple, and specifically its subway system.

The watch's all black facade is contrasted with minimalist white dials and numerals. A splash of color is added to the backs of each strap in red, blue and green to represent the city's busiest subway lines. The Mondaine Helvetica Collection' nod to New York is extremely minimal and subtle, allowing for the watch to remain versatile. The packaging of the watch comes in an all-black rectangular case with its name written in the same font as New York subway stations. The watch also comes wrapped in the Vigenlli subway map, along with a set of vintage postcards.
