Launched in 2016, Mido Baroncelli Heritage collection welcomes two new watches (designed as pair) this year. Both timepieces boast sumptuous white and grained dial revealing polished applied Roman numerals around its edge.
These numerals emphasise the classic, timeless faces of these two timepieces and their elegant round cases with rose PVD treatment. The exceptional slimness of this case makes the Baroncelli Heritage one of the thinnest and lightest timepieces on the market. Fitted with an automatic movement, these two models are the perfect expression of Mido’s watchmaking expertise and fondness for classic watchmaking traditions.
These new graceful, light and sophisticated Baroncelli Heritage models echo the art of vertical dancing, which enhances architecture with spectacular choreography.
The Baroque-influenced neoclassical style of Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II expresses all the sophistication inherent to Italian architectural tradition. It was from these refined, rounded forms that Mido drew its inspiration for the Baroncelli. 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 celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2016.
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 semi-matt black crocodile-look genuine calfskin strap. They feature a stainless steel pin buckle with rose PVD treatment.
