Meet New Mido Multifort Chronometer
Like many Swiss watch brands, Mido has an extensive watchmaking history. The collection we’re looking at today dates back to 1934; Mido designed and released a self-winding, anti-magnetic watch that we know today as the Multifort collection. The new Mido Multifort M Chronometer represents a modern rebirth of vintage Swiss watchmaking with its beautiful design and contemporary watchmaking technology.
While chronometers aren’t a new addition to the Multifort collection, they’ve been a crucial part of the collection since 2018; the new Multifort M Chronometer introduces a new dial colour and a slight redesign of a watch from the 1930s. The latest addition to the Multifort collection boasts a new dial colour with the trademark stripes on the dial, inspired by the Sydney Harbour Bridge, built around the same time as the Multifort. The entire Multifort collection comes from inspiration pulled from the architecture of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The new Multifort M Chronometer features a 42mm stainless steel case, 48mm lug-to-lug and 12mm case thickness to create a well-balanced and comfortable watch on the wrist, not to mention the 22mm lug width for added support and wearability. The polished lugs and bezel accentuate the dial and beautiful shape of the case and contrast beautifully with the brushed sides to create an elegant yet rugged aesthetic. The addition of the brushed stainless steel bracelet is the cherry on top.
Bringing the Multifort M Chronometer to life is the COSC-certified calibre 80si, based on the ETA calibre c07.821. The 80 stands for the 80-hour power reserve, not to mention the movement is fitted with a silicon hairspring for increased reliability and life. The thinness of the 80si also allows for the slim 12mm sizing of the case.
The Mido Multifort M Chronometer is a stunning example of Swiss-made craftsmanship and design rolled into one reliable and contemporary package. Priced well under $2,000, this is the perfect watch for any collector looking in any price bracket and is a shining example of true Swiss watchmaking heritage.
