This anniversary edition crafted from steel embodies robustness and reliability, the defining characteristics of Mido’s oldest collection, just like the Sydney Harbour Bridge that inspired it. The famous monument’s suspension cables are represented by the vertical Geneva stripes decorating the anthracite dial of this unique timepiece, while the structure’s silhouette in black Super-LumiNova® is illuminated in green in the dark. A special presentation box decorated with a medallion houses each watch in this rare limited edition of 1,932 pieces – a reference to the year in which the bridge was opened. In addition to its elegant urban style, this Multifort offers formidable performance thanks to its Caliber 80, which offers up to 80 hours of autonomy.

Mido creates watches whose aesthetics and mechanics stand the test of time. It is therefore only natural that the brand chose to draw its inspiration from iconic architecture and buildings that also defy time. Created in 2002, the All Dial collection was the first to evoke one of the most famous monuments of ancient Rome in its design: the immense Colosseum amphitheatre. Ever since, the art of architecture has been written into the creative DNA of Mido and has influenced all of its collections. The robust Multifort references the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The rock-solid architectural design dates back to 1930 – just like this Mido collection. On its characteristic dial, Geneva stripes recall the bridge’s suspension cables.

What better way to honour this anniversary than with a rare and exceptional Multifort? Its anthracite dial decorated with Geneva stripes recalling the suspension cables on the Harbour Bridge also depicts the bridge in black Super-LumiNova®. In the dark, the phosphorescent substance works its magic, its lines appearing in green to match the indexes and hour and minute hands, which are also luminescent. In the daytime, the light plays on the surfaces of the faceted hour and minute hands and the polished indexes, which stand out against the deep shade of the dial. As time passes, its different faces transform the wrist and offer an ever-changing urban experience. An aperture at 3 o’clock displays the day and date, a very useful everyday function.

Finely crafted from steel – with alternating satin-finished and polished surfaces for greater elegance – this new Multifort perfectly encapsulates the collection’s DNA. Stainless steel is a particularly robust material thanks to its resistance to corrosion. With a screwed crown and water-resistance up to 100 m, there is no urban experience the Multifort can’t handle.

Behind the scenes, the Caliber 80 provides up to 80 hours of power reserve, which is perfect for roaming the city without worrying about winding the mechanism. Last but not least, the case back of this anniversary model is engraved with a drawing of the Sydney Harbour Bridge that inspired it.
