The riveted steel and aerodynamic forms of 1930s industrial streamline design: Inspiration of the Multifort.

The new arrival in the Multifort line is a special edition model. With its sports chic, it showcases the distinctive Mido colours of orange and black. The black dial with Geneva stripes decoration has strong connotations with Streamline. The orange and black indexes call to mind the rivets attached to locomotives of the period and give this model a resolutely contemporary feel. 

Strong, reliable and good looking, it has all the characteristics of the Multifort line.

A Brief History of Mido Multifort

It was in 1934 that the watchmaker Mido (Swatch Group) first launched its Multifort collection.

Led by Georges Schaeren, the engineers and technicians at Mido developed the Multifort. Dependable, robust and resistant with real allure, these qualities made it a reference for rigour and high standards as soon as it was launched on the market.

That is why many satisfied customers sporting this model of watches went to the extend of expressing their great satisfaction in fine handwritten letters addressed to the company’s head office. These letters are still well kept in the Mido archives today.
