Swiss watch brand Mido presents the Multifort Mechanical Skeleton limited edition with a 44 mm diameter high-tech black PVD titanium case.
The absence of a dial draws attention to a skeletonised movement with a striking black plate decorated with Geneva stripes – the real DNA of the Multifort collection.
Mido draws its inspiration for the Multifort collection from the architecture of the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge. The Multifort’s characteristic Geneva stripes on the dial recall the suspension cables on the Bridge.
The balance-spring is the beating heart of the watch from which the concentric rings of the skeleton design radiate. In intense black and decorated with Geneva stripes, the plate of the Multifort Mechanical Skeleton reveals the ballet of the geartrain.
The triple-faceted hour and minute hands adorned with white Super-LumiNova® stand out against the canvas of the movement, as does a diamond-cut small seconds hand at 6 o’clock.
The flange displays the hour circle in white against a black background. The final flourish contributing to the captivating beauty of this creation is a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides for optimal readability.
The new skeletonised calibre driving the Multifort Mechanical Skeleton is a direct descendant of a flagship Swiss calibre developed in the 1950s (ETA 6498-1).
The manual winding system offers 46-hour power reserve. On the rear, traditional decorations including chamfering and Geneva stripes give the rhodium-plated components their radiance.
The case is made of titanium, a lightweight and noble material that resists both corrosion and erosion. Polished on the bezel and satin-finished on the sides, it is coated in black using a PVD treatment.
The watch number appears on the back – an individual figure in a limited series of 999 timepieces. Each creation is presented in a dedicated box with a numbered certificate to reflect its rarity.
A titanium pin buckle accompanies a technical black fabric strap. The water-resistance of the watch is 10 bar (100 m/330 ft).
