Steel and character: distinctive features of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the MultifortBASELWORLD 2013: The Mido Multifort Two Crowns Brown

For the watchmaker Mido, the revolutionary architecture of a monument is synonymous with a mark of true design, just like the Multifort. This collection was launched in 1934, two years after the Sydney Harbour Bridge was inaugurated. Equipped with an automatic movement, the Multifort Two Crowns Brown is an essential accessory for all diving enthusiasts.

Its dial is adorned with white Super LumiNova® and a rotating flange. Water-resistant up to a pressure of 20 bar (200 m / 660 ft), this model features a folding clasp rubber strap with diver extension.

A real technological masterpiece, the Sydney Harbour Bridge epitomises the era of the industrial revolution in the 1930s. Beyond their functional role, such structures and buildings also have great aesthetic value. The Multifort beautifully evokes the architecture of this symbolic construction.

With a diameter of 42 mm, the Multifort Two Crowns Brown is fitted with an elaborate, finely decorated automatic movement that can be admired through a transparent case back. Reliable and durable, this timepiece is water-resistant up to a pressure of 20 bar (200 m / 660 ft) and will satisfy any diving enthusiast who appreciates Swiss tradition and expertise.

This distinctive model is equipped with a satin-finished and polished steel case, treated with rose PVD. The entirely brown dial is decorated with vertical Geneva stripes. A diving accessory which is both attractive and practical, this Multifort is adorned with a rotating flange, the first quarter of which is treated with white Super LumiNova®. It is also distinguished by its two screw-down crowns. The first, at 2 o’clock, enables the flange to be adjusted to measure the immersion time. The other crown, at 4 o’clock, is for setting the time and winding. The vertical satinated and golden-rose hands are treated with white Super-LumiNova®, as are the indexes, ensuring maximum reading comfort, both underwater and at night. An anti-reflecting sapphire crystal, treated on both sides, further enhances the readability of the time.

The Multifort Two Crowns Brown is equipped with a brown rubber strap with folding clasp and diver extension. It is also available in a full steel version with an anthracite dial, or with a black PVD-treated steel case, black and orange dial and black rubber strap.
