MIDO – MULTIFORT Caliber 80


















MIDOMULTIFORT Caliber 80 NEW

A timepiece with a bold design 
for motorsports enthusiasts

Just like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Multifort collection is synonymous with bold modernity. The latest addition to a collection that epitomises Mido’s expertise, the Multifort Caliber 80 will delight all those who enjoy a rush of adrenaline behind the wheel. Its anthracite dial is protected by a stainless steel case and is decorated with vertical Geneva stripes. Several touches of red – on the seconds hand and minute circle – highlight the watch’s fiery temperament and evoke the dashboard counters on a racing car. Fitted with a steel bracelet, this three-hand model houses a latest-generation movement: the Caliber 80, which gives it up to 80 hours of power reserve. Formidably accurate and uncompromisingly robust, the Multifort Caliber 80 is characterised by its distinguished design and will be at home on the wrists of all motorsports enthusiasts.

Launched in 1934, just two years after the completion of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Multifort collection shares some remarkable characteristics with the famous structure: a perfect balance between function and aesthetics. A truth that has stood the test of time, as Mido celebrated the 80th anniversary of Multifort production in 2014, making this emblematic collection one of the longest-produced series in the history of Swiss watchmaking.

The Multifort Caliber 80 is sporty at heart and is a timepiece designed for automotive performance. Featuring a robust case in satin-finished and polished stainless steel, it is impervious to knocks, jolts or high-speed spin-outs. The timepiece is fitted with the Caliber 80, an automatic movement at the cutting edge of watchmaking technology which, in addition to its formidable accuracy, endows the watch with 80 hours of power reserve – two reasons that are sure to delight all those who enjoy a rush of adrenaline behind the wheel. The anthracite dial adorning the Multifort Caliber 80 is decorated with vertical Geneva stripes and is protected by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides.

Meanwhile, its 42 mm diameter case is encircled by a black aluminium ring and the date is indicated in an aperture at 4.30. The indexes and hour and minute hands feature white Super-LumiNova® for enhanced legibility at night. Several touches of red – on the seconds hand and minute circle – highlight its fiery temperament and evoke the dashboard counters on a racing car.
