Emblematic of Mido’s watchmaking expertise, the Multifort collection is welcoming a new model that combines timeless design and technological innovation. The Multifort Caliber 80 Chronometer embodies a dialogue between past and present, borrowing its classic forms from a historic 1940 model. It is equipped with a new automatic movement that ensures exceptional autonomy: the power reserve lasts up to 80 hours. Certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (the official Swiss chronometer testing institute), the Caliber 80 makes this model an instrument of extreme precision. The silver dial of this Multifort Caliber 80 Chronometer model is decorated with vertical Geneva stripes recalling the slender forms of Sydney Harbour Bridge, a manifesto of architectural modernity created in the 1930s.
Launched in 1934, two years after the Sydney Harbour Bridge was completed, the Multifort collection shares the structure’s remarkable qualities – a perfect blend of functionality and beauty. A truth that has stood the test of time, as Mido celebrated the 80th anniversary of Multifort production in 2014, making it one of the longest-produced series in the history of Swiss watchmaking.
Beyond these technical features that will appeal to all fine watchmaking enthusiasts, the Multifort Caliber 80 Chronometer is distinguished by the understated elegance of its classic design, conceived to withstand the effects of time. Its rose PVD-treated steel case, with a diameter of 42 mm, houses a silver dial decorated with vertical Geneva stripes and protected by a sapphire crystal. The dial makes subtle reference to the suspension and rivets of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, an early 1930s symbol of architectural modernism. The faceted, polished and satinated indexes adorning the edge of the dial are golden-rose, and the day and date are displayed in an aperture at 3 o’clock.
