Mido, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2008, aims to endow its collections with a timeless elegance inherited from the greatest human achievements. The timepieces made by the Swiss brand give their owners the benefit of inestimable loyalty, far removed from the vagaries of fashion and ephemeral trends.
Art Deco and the 1930s: an exhilarating period and an incredibly creative artistic movement which made its mark on the century and retains its great power of seduction even today. The dynamism and decorative richness of this epoch were the brilliant source of inspiration for the creation of Mido’s new Belluna line.
The steel case, with a diameter of 33 mm, surrounds a delicate dial in azure mother of pearl which is reminiscent of the sun’s rays shining on the windows of the Chrysler Building, one of the foremost art deco symbols. A strap in genuine blued leather with a folding clasp turns this feminine line into a jewellery watch – perfect for wear at the smartest evening event.
The indexes are enhanced by twelve diamonds (representing a total of 0.030 carats) sparkling behind a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. On the dial two half-moon shaped windows reveal the date at 3 o’clock and the day at 9 o’clock. A transparent screwed case back allows the decorated self-winding movement and the engraved Mido logo to be admired. A screw-down crown with guaranteed water-resistance up to 100 m round off the outstanding character of this Belluna model.
