Swiss watch brand Mido takes inspiration from China’s greatest monument to create a new timepiece collection named Great Wall.
The first model of this new collection, the Great Wall has a COSC-certified automatic movement and stands out by its singular design. Drawing inspiration from the stones of China’s Great Wall, the centre of the dial is finished in relief. A striated disc interspersed with large indexes ingeniously calls to mind the ramparts of the impressive construction, as do the fluted sides of the case.
With a diameter of 42 mm, this chronometer has a COSC-certified automatic movement. Water-resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 m / 330 ft), this timepiece has a transparent case back through which its owner can admire the finely decorated movement.
The new Great Wall exerts a singular appeal. At its centre, the dial is finished in relief, a subtle reminder of the stones of the Great Wall of China. It comprises a striated disc, interspersed with large nickel-plated applied indexes that ingeniously call to mind the ramparts of the imposing monument, as do the fluted sides of the case.
Protected by an anti-reflecting sapphire crystal treated on both sides, the hour and minute hands are treated with white Super-LumiNova® making it easy to tell the time, even at night. The model has a screw down crown.
The Mido Great Wall watch is mounted on a polished and satin-finished stainless steel bracelet. It is also available with a black, anthracite or silver dial with nickel-plated or black nickel-plated indexes.
