Two years back Swiss watch maker Mido created a special edition Multifort timepiece in association with Horween, the prestigious leather company based in the United States. This year, the partnership between the two brands renews and launching a new model: the Multifort Escape Horween Special Edition.
Both founded in the early 20th century, Mido and Horween share the same vision of excellence: authentic expertise born of long tradition, impeccable quality of materials and resolutely timeless products.
Inspired by a Multifort of the 1940s, the Multifort Escape is Mido’s largest three-hand model. This special edition is supplied with two easily interchangeable Horween leather straps: the Essex, in brown genuine calfskin, whose patina will develop over time, with black stitching, and American Football in black genuine calfskin with beige stitching – the official leather used by Horween to manufacture American footballs for over 70 years. Both are fitted with a stainless steel pin buckle with aged and sandblasted black PVD treatment.
