The legend of Mido dates back 1918 when George G. Schaeren founded it in Biel/Bienne in Switzerland and from that moment on its name has always been linked to high quality manufacturing. This stainless steel Multi-Center chronograph dates to the 1940s features two round buttons to activate the functionalities of the chronograph that are the same used by Patek for the reference 1463. The resistant and elegant case is secured by a screw back which preserves the watch from the risk of ingress of dust and water. The dial doesn’t need many explanations, a simple glance is enough to appreciate and understand its rarity: a two toned silvered color is decorated with Arabic radium hour indexes, black minute track, outer tachymetric and inner telemetric scales, one in an electric blue while the other one in black, both extremely well preserved. In the end, the luminescent steel sward hands which perfectly harmonize with all the rest of the composition.
