Multifort Dual Time Black 42mm Ref. M038.429.36.051.00

"Multifort, the lionheart of Mido since the 1930s…"

Mido Watches has a century their own in producing many if not, all their Swiss-made watches with dexterity and prowess. All of their timepieces, even until today, unveil such essential traits without merely putting out their brand name without many credentials. Skilled watchmaking can be seen from the production of artisanal enameled dials ladies timingepieces to the auction-worthy Bughatti's "egg-shaped grill" watches since 1925. Another great strength of Mido derives from their pioneering of durable tool watches like their Ocean Star Commander, and the Multifort collections since 80 years ago. Focusing on the latter, we would like to introduce the Mido Multifort Dual Time Black 42mm Ref. M038.429.36.051.00.

Mido Multifort Dual Time Black 42mm Ref. M038.429.36.051.00

The Mido Multifort's values and aesthetics based on the architectural Sydney's Harbour Bridge that radiates force and strength, but before we get right into it, we at Gnomon Watches wants to tell the Multifort story that we think Mido deserves. The Multifort line came about during the time where the world is facing the Great Depression. During this chaos period in 1930, Mido stomped out and revealed the Multifort that what has made them established and known for until this day, as we believe.

In the early 1930s was where the great depression hit, the financial crisis did result in the watchmaker's center of activity and headquarters being moved to Biel, resulting in its first centralization. Further, Mido forcefully changed its segment to more practical and timeless watches with protection and excellent craftsmanship their most important. Therefore, in 1934, when the whole centralized team worked on this particular path, the Multifort is born with its distinct characteristics that later benchmarked its reputation: being impervious to water, dust, and rust, shock-resistant and antimagnetic. This is the first time Mido combines the four aspects that made them successful, especially their water-resistant system later known as "aquadura" in 1959.

           
Mido's black & orange bi-colour theme
Eighty years now, the Mido Multifort Dual Time exemplified this legacy with an additional second time-zone display. Measuring at 42mm wide and 13.39mm tall, the stainless steel case gets the extremely technical process of Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) coating process to ensure continued resistance to corrosion. This microscopically thin layer boosts the watch's hardness and robustness while enhancing its elegant aesthetics in beautiful shades of black while being hypoallergenic properties increase its universal appeal and allow for a range of applications. Since it carries the Multifort moniker, it features a screw-in crown and case back that are done in blackout tone as well, keeping the water-resistant of 100m for everyday activities.

Underneath its flat sapphire crystal with double-sided anti-reflection treatment, the Dual Time Multifort has a solid look thanks to its black dial with slight hint of orange. The unique second time-zone display sits right at the center of the inner dial with its 24 hour markers and orange hash marks. Flanging the display are the applied hour makers filled with SuperLuminova that shines brightly in low-light conditions along with its handset. The skeletonized orange GMT hand’s (home time) color theme shouts Mido (being their home color), while it somehow brings to mind the American football team Cleveland Browns color as well, which is refreshing in all ways. One thing to mention where the main dial carries the Harbour Bridge "tuxedo" style ribbing, which has been the DNA of the Multifort. The date display located at 3 o'clock, with all things flow oh so seamlessly on the dial. Since the Multifort Dual Time is Mido's all-rounder Sports traveller model, wearability and legibility are at its best.

Caliber 80 based on the ETA C07.621
Under the dial spots, the in-house Caliber 80 automatic movement with GMT from Mido. The Caliber 80 is the latest generation automatic watch movement — the caliber 80 of MIDO based on the ETA C07.661 with a full 80-hour power reserve. The Caliber 80 GMT is considered in-house as MIDO is part of the Swatch group family, and the modified  25 jewels ETA CO7.661 features a Nivachoc and NivaCourbe spring system with its frequency reduced to 21,600 Hz for and an improved mainspring capacity. The caliber 80 inside the Multifort makes it so value-driven as it hoods one of the highest-quality movements today at an exceptional price point. Best yet, the setting of the GMT is true to its kind whereby setting the central main hour hand to your local time while still keeping your home time displayed by the orange GMT hand. Oh, Mido has uniquely designed a rehaut for its movement seen through at the back, creating certain depth for one to admire when the movement been viewed upon.

The Mido Multifort Dual Time Black 42mm Ref. M038.429.36.051.00 pairs with a black leather strap with alligator prints to elevates the elegant side, done with the matching stitching to keeps the whole sleekness of a blackout watch with slight hint of orange. Finally. The strap attached to a PVD black signed deployant clasp for comfortable wearing.

SuperLuminova for Superb Glow In Dark

Ending it off the Dual Time Multifort Black showcases all the original traits of the Multifort line, which is the first watch available on the market combining all four modern advantages: self-winding, watertight, antimagnetic and impact resistant with GMT complication. It features the strength of an all-occasion sporty watch with its design cues heavily reflects Mido architectural philosophy, like from the sleek bi-color orange and black tones, to the Harbour bridge ribbings on the dial. Modernly and nostalgic tastes while featuring historically accurate traits that watch enthusiasts seek today. What's more, the caliber 80 inside the robust Multifort feels more than enough to justify its value proposition.
