To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Baroncelli collection, Mido is launching its first Caliber 80 chronometer watch with a silicon balance-spring.
Fitted with a new COSC certified chronometer movement featuring a silicon balance-spring, the Mido Baroncelli Caliber 80 Chronometer Si watch celebrates the collection’s 40th anniversary with unparalleled accuracy.
The Mido Baroncelli series takes its design inspiration from the refined, rounded forms of the Baroque-influenced neoclassical style of Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The subtle references to this prestigious building and its harmonious curves bestow both a rare sense of elegance and a resolutely timeless style on this iconic collection, which marks its 40th anniversary in 2016.
The Mido Baroncelli Caliber 80 Chronometer Si is a discreetly elegant and refined model fitted with a new COSC certified automatic chronometer movement featuring a silicon balance-spring. As well as offering increased resistance to magnetism and shocks, this balance-spring offers greater long-term accuracy than a standard balance-spring. The Caliber 80 provides up to 80 hours of power reserve.
Measuring 40 mm in diameter, its round case in polished 316L stainless steel reveals an elegant white lacquered dial, which is also polished. The polished black applied indexes and double-sided black hour and minute hands (one side sandblasted, the other diamond-cut) contrast magnificently with the radiant white dial. The latter is protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal treated on both sides. An aperture at 3 o’clock also displays the date.
The Baroncelli Caliber 80 Chronometer Si’s mechanical self-winding movement – finely decorated with blued screws and an oscillating weight adorned with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo – is visible through the transparent sapphire crystal case back.
Water-resistant up to a pressure of 3 bars (30 m/100 ft), the Baroncelli Caliber 80 Chronometer Si comes with a polished 316L stainless steel bracelet complete with folding clasp.
Other men’s and women’s versions are also available in this range.
