Introducing: The Mido Multifort Datometer Limited Edition –

Fast Take

This new manifestation of the Multifort Datometer is a restricted version made to observe Mido’s 100th commemoration. The watch draws on a very nearly 80-year-old model from the company’s documents, the Datometer. The model is characterized by its focal date hand that utilizes a red sickle to highlight the date around the edge of the dial, just as the 12-3-6-9 design and knife formed hour markers. Every one of the three of these qualities have been extended to the new watch, which is somewhat bigger than the first and is introduced in a tempered steel case with a rose gold PVD finish. There will be 1,918 exclusively numbered pieces made, a gesture to Mido’s establishing year.

Why This Watch Matters

Watch companies love commemorations, yet 100 years is a big deal. This is one that is really worth commending (no offense, however numbers like 85, 135, and 215 don’t consider achievements). For Mido to look to the past is a savvy, if somewhat unsurprising move, and the subsequent watch finds some kind of harmony. You get a completely current development with a 80-hour power hold while the dial configuration is practically indistinguishable from that of the first 1939 motivation watch. Little contacts like the container sapphire gem additionally ride the past and the present, adding to the general feel of the watch.

Beginning Thoughts

It’s clearly difficult to say much without seeing this watch face to face, yet from the two images we have here, I’m really dazzled with this one. Without a doubt, I’d have favored the watch in a more exemplary 38mm size versus the more current 40mm estimation, however that is as yet a commonsense, ordinary sort of size, and it will not post of spot with a suit or jacket. The etched drags are a truly keen move here, adding something unique and somewhat sentimental to a straightforward, practical watch. That the watch comes in under $1,500 just adds to the allure.
