Mido Multifort Special Edition

The new arrival in the Multifort line is a special edition model. With its sports chic, it showcases the Midocolours: orange and black. The black dial with Geneva stripes decoration has strong connotations with Streamline. The orange and black indexes call to mind the rivets attached to locomotives of the period and give this model a resolutely contemporary feel. Strong, reliable and good looking, it has all the characteristics of the Multifort line.

The new Multifort, and more particularly its chronograph model featuring an ETA Valjoux 7750 movement with many refined details and subtle features, clearly confirms the watchmaker’s liking for that age. With a diameter of 44 mm, a thickness of 14.50 mm and water-resistance up to 100 m, the new Multifort is immediately defined as a significant model. But it is also a model which sets great store by aesthetic quality.

Under the sapphire crystal, the dial with its Geneva stripes explores the concept of streamlining. The work done by the Mido design department is clearly visible in its highly successful evocation of the huge plates of steel fitted on the sides of US locomotives. Their fixing rivets are also recalled by the indexes on this watch and the use of applied chapters to mark the quarters. Orange Super-LumiNova® treatment ensures optimal clarity of the dial, even at night. In a subtle reference to the Mido colours, the combination of black (dial) and orange (indexes) adds a touch of refinement.

Lovers of luxury watchmaking will also enjoy the opportunity to admire the magic of a self-winding movement manufactured to the highest standards through the mineral crystal fitted on the case back. They will also surely appreciate the oscillating weight with its Geneva stripes decoration, the blued screws and finely circular-grained bridges.

This model is a special edition. It comes in a presentation box created exclusively for the occasion. It is also available with three hands.
