    New Arrival - Mido Multifort Automatic Chronograph

    There was a package waiting for me tonight when I finally got home.

    I didn't even go to the loading dock at the post office once!

    I want to thank Canadajo. I hadn't bought a watch from any of the trading fora previously. The watch is perfect. It is precisely as described, was very well packed, and even had the pastic on the back!

    I had looked at Mido Multifort Automatic Chronograph's before and wanted one. When I saw his on the sales corner I decided to go ahead and am I ever glad I did. I like the old-fashioned look to the watch. It reminds me of many of the 1940s and early 50s chronos in the style and look of the dial.
    It has a 25 jewels Mido 1320 (base ETA Valjoux 7750) certified automatic chronograph movement with Incabloc and Nivacourbe shock-absorber, Glucydur balance wheel, better Anachron and Nivaflex NM hair- and mainspring for increased and longer life accuracy; 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement is adjusted in 5 different positions for a higher accuracy and it reportedly has more than 45 hours of power reserve. The movement itself has a decorated winding rotor with Geneva stripes and engraved Mido logo, blued screws and pearled bridges and is beautiful.

    The 43mm diameter 316L SS case has a see through case back and screw down crown. Its rated at 100m and comes with a Anti-reflecting sapphire crystal. The strap was the biggest surprise for me. Usually I have to replace the strap as they have been, up til now, too short on new watches. This strap, while not excessively long, was long enough for me to wear out of the box (2nd to last hole) It is a brown leather, moderately padded strap with constrasting white stitching and steel butterfly deployant clasp engraved with "Mido".


    I am a happy camper today - well worth the wait due to the Federal Holiday!

    I wondered who bought that
    Nice purchase I'll bet the previous owner misses it eventually!

    Dear Bronze watches, I'm Just not that in to you, it's not me it's you, your stinky, and tarnished and look like crap and I'm not falling for your lack of charm.

    Thanks, Canadajo did say he is building up to buy his Grail Watch. I am very happy for him and for myself. I honestly can't wait to see what his Grail is after seeing this watch

    Great snag, Doc...............and CJ is a fantastic seller..........when I saw that at 3T I was sorely tempted. It is beautiful! It had to be for you to break your self-imposed limit. MIDO is a premium brand and a fine old line name. My first watch as a teenager was a MIDO!

    Thanks Ken. Yes, I broke the $500 limit on this one. Guess I own Jewelry now Seriously, I had looked at them months ago and was tempted but at $1200+ I just couldn't justify it. When I saw CJ selling his it took me about 30 minutes to decide to buy it. It is a truly lovely watch with a VERY nice movement in it. Heck, even the strap fit!? I certainly hope that CJ's Grail is a killer. He's a great guy to deal with the watch is exactly what he said and the packaging was what we all hope for when we order a watch.:gold

    That is absolutely gorgeous! Wow! I love it!

    Nice pics also. I hear Mido and Omega watches are made at the same facility but there is probably more to that than a simple wall dividing the two sides of the factory, if, in fact that is true.

    I really love some of the disigns Mido has with the "All Dial" models and this mulifort is beautiful.

    Congrats.
