Mondaine Helvetica Erik Spiekermann

Typographer and designer Erik Spiekermann is showing his love for Helvetica with a new watch collection from Mondaine. Spiekermann updated a number of styles that pay tribute to the famous font with clean and functional dials that perfect complement the Helvetica aesthetic. Our favorite design (above) keeps it simple with a 12 written in Helvetica Light and a dash of red above it that adds a bold touch to the white dial.
