UNIFORM WARES VS. MONDAINE

Well, I have found myself in a bit of a conundrum! I have been looking for a watch for, oh approximately four years. "Four years!" I hear you exclaim, yes indeed I am quite the picky consumer when it comes to watches and other every-day items.

So here I am going about my long desperate search and I come across two brands, who both have watches in-stock, which perfectly suit my tastes, price range and colour preferences! Four years of no joy and now here I am with two perfect possibilities.

The companies in question are Uniform Wares and Mondaine.

Uniform Wares, who I believe launched early on this year specialise in everyday watches for those with an eye for design detail. They currently have a fantastic selection of colours available on their website. Their designs are minimal and clean, which I love!

The other contender as mentioned is Mondaine, the prestigious maker of the official Swiss Railway watch, originally designed by Hans Hilfiker, pictured below. I do love the second hand on this watch, it sort of reminds me of a clowns nose every time I see it!
