Mido Belluna Heures & Minutes Decentrees (M024.444.16.031.00)

The new Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées asserts the excellence of Mido’s watchmaking expertise. Positioned at 10 o’clock and 4 o’clock respectively, the hours and minutes counter and the seconds counter present finishes that contrast magnificently with the silver grained dial. These two off-centred counters, combined with the scrolling date at 7 o’clock, establish the exclusive nature of the Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées. Fitted with an automatic movement equipped with a small-seconds complication, this model is faithful to the lines of the Belluna collection. Its timeless elegance will appeal to all those who love rare timepieces, both men and women alike.

Inaugurated in 1871 to promote the arts and science, London’s Royal Albert Hall is now one of the most renowned concert halls in the United Kingdom. Built in the inimitable Victorian style, this vast red-brick monument is comprised of several concentric circles and an impressive glass dome, which towers over the centre of this curved, resolutely rounded structure. Just like this magnificent building, the Belluna range displays perfectly harmonious forms and embodies classic, timeless elegance.
Combining tradition and modernity, the Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées is a unique timepiece. Its all-new design is both classic and original, while its magnificent dial offers a play on circles and curves evoking the spectacular architecture of the Royal Albert Hall. It houses two off-centred counters: the hours and minutes counter located at 10 o’clock, and the seconds counter positioned at 4 o’clock. It is this unique touch, together with the scrolling date at 7 o’clock, that gives this model its originality. The radiant silver grained dial captivates with its various finishes: the hours and minutes counter is sunray satinated, the seconds counter is snailed, and the rings surrounding them are black nickel-plated. An opening in the first quarter of the dial displays the name of the model in French – the language of watchmaking par excellence. This extraordinary dial together with the attention paid to every detail make the Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées an exceptional model that is emblematic of Mido’s expertise.

Fitted with an automatic movement with petite complication, the Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées is available in a stainless steel case measuring 40 mm in diameter, which will suit both men’s and women’s wrists. The harmonious dial is protected by a sapphire crystal treated with an anti-reflective coating on both sides. Enthusiasts of fine watchmaking mechanics will endlessly admire the finely decorated automatic movement, which features an oscillating weight adorned with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo, through the transparent case back. Water-resistant up to a pressure of 5 bars (50 m/165 ft), the Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées comes with a black crocodile look leather strap integrated into the case, and a folding clasp.
