Swiss watch brand Mido enriches its Multifort collection by launching a new timepiece with an original vertical satin-finished dial with a blue to black gradient finish.
The origins of the Multifort collection date back to 1934. On the dial of the new Multifort M, a vertical satin-finished design recalls the collection’s characteristic Geneva stripes.
The dial showcases the graduated colour scheme: blue in the centre subtly changing to black around the rim. The flange is also black, with a white minute circle.
Generously coated in white Super-LumiNova®, the resolutely sporty round and trapezoid-shaped indexes, together with the double-sided hands, stand out against this dark background and are thus highly legible. At night, a blue-green luminescence illuminates the display.
There is a day and date aperture at 3 o’clock, while a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides ensures legibility.
The 42mm diameter stainless steel case features a mix of polished and satin-finished surfaces. With its screwed case back and crown, it provides water resistance up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 m/330 ft).
The transparent case back reveals the renowned Mido Calibre 80 (base ETA C07.621). This 25 jewel automatic movement comes with a high-tech Nivachron™ balance-spring and an oscillating weight with traditional Geneva stripes. Moreover, it offers a power reserve of up to 80 hours.
This new Multifort M watch comes with a blue fabric strap constructed on a black rubber base. White stitching recalls the tones on the dial. The strap can be changed easily without any tools.
Mido is also offering the Multifort M with a dial in graduated shades of grey with a matching grey fabric strap, and in two other versions with a steel bracelet: one with a silver-coloured dial and another with a dial offering a graduated dark grey to black finish.
