Now for the Europeans, this is actually a good deal; if Massdrop gets the shipping right that is. With current conversion rates, I paid about 250€ for this, and even if I had to pay import tax, it's going to be below 300. The cheapest seller I could find in the EU asked for 550 before shipping. The 1 year less warranty is actually not a problem on a mechanical watch, if it doesn't fail by then, it's unlikely to fail by the next year.

The reason this is, I believe, is that "swiss made" still bears a huge impact in Europe considering watches, which is why mass produced quartz watches by Tissot or even Swatch, are the same money, or even more expensive than automatics by Seiko or Citizen, which are arguably more watch for the money
I've placed a similar order of this watch in August this year but was mis-delivered and Massdrop refunded the same amount. Still waiting for refund. I've a polished stainless steel bracelet mondaine watch. I like the simple design and placed an order. Hopefully, they don't misplaced it again. The watch is a present for my daughter.
I actually prefer the days displayed in French. Will the days be in English or French, as displayed?
Amazon has the same price of this drop, $259. This is not a bargain.
Some background info coming from a Swiss: this ist the small version of the official Swiss railway clock which had been designed in 1944 and has been present at all Swiss railway stations ever since, as a design icon and symbol for the proverbial punctuality of Swiss trains. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss_railway_clock
100m wr and its a perfect watch
What is the model number of this watch?

Wouldn’t the model numbers be different if one is international and the other USA-only?
JanuszWatch
One would think, but they are the same model number: A132.30359.16SBB
When exactly is SAM 31?

It works in English as well, you can switch the setting.
Based on other pictures of the watch I've seen (namely showing MIT for Mittwoch), I'd wager it's rather in German which is also the main language spoken in Switzerland (and SAM would be Samstag).
Is it hackable or hand wind able? Lol Seems like a good deal if so
Juststartingmycollection
The Selitta 200 movement is hand wind able and hack able. It's basically a copy of the ETA 2824-2 movement. And yes this is a very good deal for this watch. Any Swiss Made watch with a automatic movement in is is a good deal. This one is even better.
For anyone that may know, does the dial glow at night/in the dark? Is it luminescent?
injurylawyer
it does not
this watch retails for £599 in the UK, good if you can get it for the $299.99 even with the exchange rate. Never $995 though !!

599 GBP is $769, that's still pretty high.
several years ago a friend who bought and sold watches ,sold me several mondaine wristwatches ,one was an autowinder by mondaine like this one ,but I didn't pay almost 300 usd for it ,it was part of a collection that I acquired fro 500 usd ,seven watches in all ,these are very interesting watches ,you should get a tool kit made for them to replace the battery powered quartz mondaines .not may jewelry outlets will work on them as the movements cases involve many tiny screws ,but there are some with screw on case backs also, they keep excellent time if you do not immerse them in water.
Samstag
What is the rated or quote accuracy of this movement? thanks.
BillyChiu.com
plus or minus three seconds per month (usually pretty accurate watches) if you keep them out of the water .

This is an automatic mechanical Watch. 3 seconds a month is unlikely.
How much were these going for on Massdrop? Not sure if i should wait for another drop or not. Really wish they kept the price on here

Actually I can't even find it now on ebay, when this drop first dropped they had the black dial model and showed the part numbers, and I could have sworn I searched by the part number. At any rate thanks for pointing that out, I see they have many models of automatic even, it's a beautiful watch, really, and that's a great movement
I think these drops actually increase demand all over! People go searching for that model to compare and all of a sudden you can't even find it anywhere in stock...
same price in amazon with prime Mondaine Unisex A132.30359.16SBB SBB Analog Display Swiss Automatic Black Watch

Price:$299.99 Free Shipping for Prime Members

hectorgull
The date only model is available on amazon for $299.
The day/date model (this watch)on amazon is NOT the same price. It’s $365 USD. So Massdrop is $65 cheaper!!!
What’s the general opinion on the quality of this movement?
Cue the numerous comments begging for Stop2Go... 😄
I'm in. Not much a sale, but I've been eyeing on Mondaine for awhile. Thanks, MD!
Hey all, there seems to be some confusion about the day wheel on the dial.
The day can be displayed in either English or German. If it automatically advances at midnight, it will jump twice to preserve whatever language it is set to.
Can you tell from what country is it being actually shipped when 'shipped by the vendor'? Also what's the language of the days on the actual product? Thanks
Black5ad
The day wheel can display both German and English.
Probably french "samedi -> saturday"
rmwarrior
French or German I guess, but the closeup seems to be in English. Odd.
What day is SAM?
