Switzerland introduces its new 10-francs banknote

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) has introduced its new 10-francs banknote today. This is the third note in the new series and has Time as its theme. Was anyone expecting Swiss watches to be on the note? You won't be completely disappointed.

The new note is yellow of color and is printed on the same Durasafe substrate as the other notes in the series. Time also points to the organisational talent of Switzerland pictured here by the hands of a conductor. There is also the image of the Earth we've seen on the previous issued notes (turned a little further again) and the different timezones on the globe. We can also see a tunnel and, yes there it is, the inner mechanics of a clock.

All details can be seen in this very informative folder (pdf) which also reveals some design elements for the upcoming notes which will be released in the coming years.
