Baroncelli Chronometer Silicon Antracite Ref. M027.408.16.061.00

“INSPIRED BY CLASSICAL AND SOPHISTICATED MONUMENTS. WITH THEIR DETAILS AND HARMONIOUS SHAPES”

1976 Mido launched its first Baroncelli model 40 years or so ago. Mido presented a new collection which perpetuates the spirit of the line. The line consists of purely classical interpretation, inspired by the sublime and timeless aesthetic of stringed instruments. Today, we take a look at the Mido Baroncelli Chronometer Silicon Antracite Ref. M027.408.16.061.00. The Baroncelli collection launched in tribute of their own 40 years of product line with Mido, and it's a very straightforward piece of watchmaking.

Mido Baroncelli Chronometer Silicon Antracite Ref. M027.408.16.061.00

The Baroncelli Chronometer design elements have been influenced by the architecture of the Rennes Opera House in France, unveiled in 1836, since then, it boasts harmonious and elegant architecture, with outstanding interior decoration. The Baroncelli reflects this elegance and grandeur of the 18th-century architecture that the Opera House beholds.

Let's dive into the dimensions of this Mido, available in stainless steel case measuring at 40mm wide and 46mm from lugs to lugs, totally a perfect fitting and proportion even for the slimmest wrist. The Baroncelli nails best would be its thickness. At 9.43mm in height, keeping its thin and elegance for anyone to strap on and out for corporate meetings and dinner dates at your favorite restaurants. The case is sophisticated from the top; for an instant, the stepped bezel creates more dial and old-school dress watch look. And the slightly thick lugs allowing the Baroncelli to feel sturdy with much versatility and then some. All these little details enhance the wrist presence and experience for the wearer thoroughly.


Wood bark texture dial w/ triple stepped bezel

Speaking on architecture influence, if anyone of you has been to the Rennes Opera House, once knows the glass windows and old concrete walls plays an essential factor in the old-school cathedral charm of the 18th-century. If anyone of you disbelieve this, I strongly suggest heading there and spend some time there. Within minutes you will be enticed by the surrounding atmosphere where the old-school warmth absorbed into you, creating a sort of elevated mood.

That same experience is adopted here when one glance underneath the flat sapphire crystal of the Baroncelli Chronometer Silicon Antracite. The dark silver dial bears a “wood bark” texture that evokes both elegance and certain mystery while allow one to admire when glancing for time-check, allowing the uneven effect to dance freely depending on how the light hits the surface. To top things off, faceted rose gold metallic markers are applied on the periphery with small white strokes at the minute intervals. The "Mido, Automatic" logo applied on the top of the dial whereas the date display and “Chronometer, Caliber 80” font balanced below. Dress watch kind of watchmaking gets pretty hard done as there are only a few elements to play within, but Mido nails a unique way to display the date window perfectly on the dial without interrupting any elements.

Mido Caliber 80 COSC Si (base ETA C07.821)
If the dial has that 18th-century charm, the movement ticking inside is sophisticatedly modern. The Swiss movement inside lies the key for its slimness- the automatic Mido’s COSC automatic caliber 80Si based on the ETA C07.821- is Mido proprietary name for their 80 hours power reserve with a silicon hairspring for better longevity. Its frequency reduced to 21,600 Hz for and an improved mainspring capacity.

Lastly, paring elegantly with the 20mm black leather done in alligator pattern and a matching rose gold signed tang buckle.
