Since 1918, the year of its foundation, Mido has always designed its finest creations in keeping with the spirit of the age. Embodying timeless styling, the Baroncelli series has now been enriched by a new case form, the Baroncelli Tonneau. To attract an elegant clientele, the women’s model remains true to the spirit of the collection, in particular with its rounded horns which evoke the scrolls of a violin.
For over thirty years, Baroncelli models have embodied that classical spirit which pays tribute to the Mido motto, a mark of true design. The alliance of a timeless shape with understated lines and high quality features of the watchmaking art makes this collection one of the jewels in the crown of the Swiss brand based in Le Locle.
The elegance of Baroncelli has no time for passing fashion and draws its inspiration from the soft and sinuous curves of the flanks of a violin. The case, extended by horns, with rounded scroll forms denotes elegance and harmony inherited from the finest creations of the master violin makers. Drawing its examples from those craftsmen specializing in minute detail, Mido carefully chooses the finest materials and components to design its watches.
The Mido Tonneau is the latest model in the Baroncelli range – a creative and innovative reflection of the true spirit of the collection. As the first Tonneau shape in the series, this watch will attract customers who wish to unite functional quality and distinction with style and discretion. The fine steel case of the women’s model brings out the delicate white mother-of-pearl of the dial featuring Arabic numerals which seem to have been traced by a slender pen. The silvered leather strap adds a shimmering touch which endows this watch with its special allure.
The finely decorated automatic movement at the heart of this model can be admired through the transparent case back. A sapphire crystal with an antireflecing treatment on both sides protects the dial guaranteeing that the time can be seen perfectly.
The Mido Baroncelli Tonneau for women is also available in two other versions. Featuring a steel bracelet, dial in mother-of-pearl and black numerals, the first one is a model of sober and discreet elegance. The second, with its leather strap and red numerals contrasting with the mother-of-pearl, exemplifies flamboyant chic.
