The Baroncelli collection from Mido takes its design inspiration from the Baroque-influenced neoclassical style of Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. In 2016, this iconic watch collection celebrated its 40th anniversary.
In 2017, Mido is enhancing this collection with new Baroncelli Heritage pair watches featuring pure and harmonious lines. These timepieces boast a sumptuous grained white dial, protected by a round two-tone polished steel case with rose PVD treatment. The exceptional slimness of this case makes it one of the thinnest and lightest timepieces on the market. The bracelet, which is also two-tone, hugs the contours of the wrist perfectly and highlights the radiance of the Baroncelli Heritage. Fitted with an automatic movement, these two models are the perfect expression of Mido’s watchmaking excellence and its fondness for classic watchmaking traditions.
The dial features the Baroncelli Heritage logo at 6 o’clock, while the date can be read in a window at 3 o’clock. The extreme refinement of this model is also apparent in its subtle details, such as the double-sided hour and minute hands (one side sandblasted, the other diamond-cut). The seconds hand, meanwhile, is diamond-cut. These hands can be admired through the sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides that protects the dial. The elegantly understated design of these Baroncelli models is sure to appeal to any couple wishing to celebrate their union with two timeless, classic watches.
The Baroncelli Heritage is fitted with an automatic movement protected by a case measuring 33 mm in diameter for the women’s model and 39 mm for the men’s model. Enthusiasts of fine watchmaking mechanics will endlessly admire the finely decorated automatic movement, which features blued screws and an oscillating weight adorned with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo, through the transparent case back.
This movement is protected by a sapphire crystal offering a perfect view of the heart of the watch. Water-resistant up to a pressure of 3 bars (30 m/100 ft), these two Baroncelli Heritage models come with a bracelet fitted with a stainless steel folding clasp.
Several other versions are also available in this line.
