Mido All Dial Special Edition (M8340.4.18.19)

The All Dial is adorned in the Mido colours and equipped with a movement featuring cutting-edge technology. The sporty All Dial Special Edition couples contemporary design with unflinching precision. A model of proven robustness, it is endowed with a matt black dial embellished with touches of orange – colours that contrast perfectly with its steel case and bracelet. The timepiece is powered by a COSC-certified Caliber 80 that ensures up to 80 hours of power reserve and will appeal to fine watchmaking aficionados and experienced sportsmen alike. Drawing inspiration from the visionary architecture of the Colosseum in Rome, the All Dial Special Edition has been designed to withstand the effects of time, just like Italy’s most famous monument.

The watchmaker Mido was inspired by the extraordinary architecture of the Colosseum for the design of its All Dial collection. The collection evokes the visionary, timeless form of the immense amphitheatre, one the most famous monuments in Roman history. The ingenious concept behind the Colosseum was transposed to the design of the dial and case, which illustrates the unique character of the All Dial timepieces.
The All Dial Special Edition honours all the values that have forged Mido’s reputation: timeless, modern design, precise and reliable movement, and robust materials. This new model offers a matt black dial, lifted by subtle touches of orange on the edges of the indexes and the three hands. Besides this nod to the Mido colours, the All Dial Special Edition meets the brand’s most exacting standards in terms of technology. It is fitted with a Caliber 80, a new automatic movement exclusive to the Swatch Group, which ensures up to 80 hours of power reserve. In addition to such exceptional autonomy, this timepiece is a formidable precision instrument, as its certification from the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (the official Swiss chronometer testing institute) demonstrates. This all-steel model with its contemporary design will win over not only lovers of fine watchmaking but experienced sportsmen, too.
Making direct reference to Rome’s Colosseum, the dial of the All Dial Special Edition is made up of various levels, evoking the circular shapes designed by the architects of the renowned monument. The generous opening of the steel case enables the space on the dial to be optimised, ensuring perfect readability. With a diameter of 42 mm, it is protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal treated on both sides. The crown is screwed, while an aperture at 3 o’clock displays the day and date.

This model also features a transparent case back through which the COSC-certified mechanical movement can be admired. The movement is finely decorated with blued screws, while its oscillating weight is adorned with Geneva stripes and the engraved Mido logo. Water-resistant up to a pressure of 10 bar (100 m / 330 ft), the All Dial Special Edition is fitted with a stainless steel bracelet.

The All Dial Special Edition comes in a presentation case specially created for the timepiece.
