A distinguished, sensuously curvaceous face. A design that is both classic and original. The new Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées is a tribute to refined watchmaking. Protected by a steel case with polished rose PVD treatment, the finish of its grained silver dial contrasts superbly with the sunray hour and minute counter and the snailed seconds counter. These two off-centred counters, combined with the scrolling date at 7 o’clock, combine to create the exclusive nature of the Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées. With its small seconds complication, this automatic timepiece will appeal to men and women who appreciate rare and timeless watches.

Inaugurated in 1871 to promote the arts and science, London's Royal Albert Hall is now one of the most renowned concert halls in the United Kingdom. Built in a style true to the Victorian era, this huge red brick monument consists of a series concentric circles. A curvaceous, rounded architecture impressively dominated by a central glass dome. Just like this magnificent building, the Belluna range displays perfectly harmonious forms and embodies classic, timeless elegance.

Between tradition and modernity, the new Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées encapsulates Mido's watchmaking excellence. Its unique design makes this an exceptional timepiece that is both traditional and original, and is certain to appeal to both men and women. Inspired by the harmonious curves of the Royal Albert Hall in London, its radiant grained silver dial features two counters. The first, at 10 o'clock, indicates the hours and minutes. The second counter, at 4 o'clock, marks the seconds. Without a doubt, these two off-centre counters make this model truly distinctive. Not to mention the scrolling date window at 7 o’clock. The refinement of the Belluna Heures & Minutes Décentrées truly shines through the subtle interplay of finishes: the sunray hour and minute counter contrasts with the snailed seconds counter. Both are surrounded by a nickel-plated ring. A cartouche in the first quarter of the dial displays the name of the model in French – the language of watchmaking par excellence.
