The Reference

Mido began life as a maker of more novelty watches or what we would consider today, fashion watches. They even produced a line of watches in the shape of famous car radiators of the day such as  Bugatti, Excelsior, and Peugeot. In 1934 the brand made a hard pivot with the introduction of the Mido Multifort. The Multifort was a true technological innovation that brought together waterproofing, anti-magnetism, and impact resistance all in one watch. The multifort would clearly establish Mido as a serious watch manufacturer and that would be reinforced by the introduction of the automatic Multifort in 1935.

The Case and Bracelet

The 32mm stainless steel case and bracelet are in great to excellent condition. The watch appears to not have received much wear over the years and the condition shows it. The best indication of this excellent condition is the original signed bracelet which is in matching condition. The rest of the watch also wears its original components including caseback and signed crown.

The Dial and Hands

The silver sunburst dial is in excellent condition with no major flaws to note. The design is simple with large applied polished hour markets with small lume plots around the edge of the dial and baton-style hands with lume that has held up well.
