1950's Mido Multifort "Extra"
Mido was founded in 1918 by George G. Schaeren in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. Mido comes from the Spanish phrase Yo mido meaning "I measure".
The Mido Multifort line was the first watch they created to use a self winding movement in 1938. It was shock resistant, antimagnetic and waterproof. Quite a feat for a watch at that time.
Here we have a really well preserved example of the Multifort line, a Mido Multifort "Extra" Super Automatic with a bumper (half rotor) movement inside.
The eggshell white dial is in spectacular condition considering it's age. The applied facetted diamond hour markers are also a lovely feature.
There is something charming and quite unique about Mido designs, wether it be the contrasting italic, vs curved fonts, or the unique "Ace" tail on the seconds hand, and alpha handset, there is so much to take in at once.
Mido is a brand that is close to our hearts at Vision.
