Mido Baroncelli Tonneau – Gent’s and Ladies’ Versions

Since 1918, the year of its foundation, Mido has always designed its finest creations in keeping with the spirit of the age. Featuring timeless elegance and sobriety, the timepieces created by this Swiss watchmaker embody the technical and aesthetic qualities sought after by persons who want to acquire a watch for lifelong wear. The Baroncelli collection in which the styling of the horns evokes the rounded scrolls of a violin has now been enhanced by a watch with a shape that is new to Mido, the Baroncelli Tonneau.

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, which assume rounded scroll forms, denotes elegance and harmony inherited from the finest creations of the master violin makers. Taking its example from those craftsmen in minute detail, Mido carefully selects the finest materials and components to design its watches.
