"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 Special edition 42mm Ref. M005.430.36.051.80.
|Mido Multifort based on the architectural Sydney's Harbour Bridge
The Mido Multifort Special Edition'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.
