MIDO Multifort Automatic Chronograph

The Multifort Collection, originally introduced by MIDO in 1934 takes inspiration from the revolutionary architecture of Sydney Harbour Bridge. Opened in 1932, a true feat of engineering prowess, the Sydney Harbour Bridge perfectly embodies the era of the 1930s industrial revolution.

In 2012, MIDO enriches its Multifort Collection with a new sport chic automatic chronograph timepiece. Crafted in Stainless steel 316L case with rose PVD treatment and measuring a diameter of 44 mm, this chronograph is highly reliable and robust. 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 automatic movement.

Finished in subtle shades of brown, the new Multifort offers sporty good looks. The case is finished in rose PVD. Encircled by a flange incorporating a tachymeter scale, the dial features vertical Geneva stripes decorations and is protected by a sapphire crystal. The two chronograph counters stand out by their large dimensions. The hour and minute hands and the indexes are treated with white Super-LumiNova® making it easy to tell the time, even at night. This model has a screw down crown.

The Multifort is mounted on a brown leather strap. It is also available with a silver, anthracite or black dial mounted on a steel, leather or black rubber strap.
