Swiss watch brand Mido presents new timepiece directly inspired by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Designed by the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, this revolutionary building was chosen by the public following the interactive #BeInspiredByArchitecture campaign, which drew over 100,000 participants from around the world.
True to the brand’s identity, the new Inspired By Architecture Limited Edition presents a captivating contemporary design supported by clean lines. The profile of its round case in satin-finished and polished stainless steel and its crown take their shape from the elegant exterior curves of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Its superb eggshell-coloured and grained dial is inspired by the impressive glass dome that crowns the monument.
