One of the Swatch Group’s accessibly priced Swiss watch brands, Mido, recently announced a new green-dial version of its Multifort M Chronometer.
The latest Multifort M Chronometer is available in a 42 mm x 12 mm stainless steel case with a unique vertically brushed gradient green dial, with a sandwich construction. Twelve indices, and three additional numerals at 12, 9, and 6, feature a sunken design (sandwich) and are filled with beige lume. Steel diamond-cut lance-shaped hour and minute hands display the time along with a steel needle-shaped center seconds hand. There’s also a day-date display at 3 o’clock.
As the name suggests, the automatic movement is a COSC-certified chronometer, meaning it’s tested and adjusted to a rate -4/+6 before being cased up. Based on an ETA C07.821, the 25-jewel 3Hz movement measures 25.6 mm x 11.5 mm, has a silicon balance spring, and offers an 80-hour power reserve. Blued screws and Geneva stripes on the rotor elevate the aesthetics of the movement, while still maintaining an industrial finish overall.
Mido’s Multifort comes with a sapphire crystal that protects the dial, a sapphire screw-in caseback, and a large screw-down crown. The watch is depth rated to 100 meters. Delivered on a stainless steel bracelet with a 22 mm lug width, you can easily switch it for a strap thanks to a quick change spring bar design. The total weight with the bracelet is 160 grams.
The Multifort M Chronometer (Ref. M038.431.11.097.00) is available for $1,350.
