Introducing Mido's ``Multifort'' from the 1940s .

 Mido means " Yo mido " (I measure) in Spanish.

Mido was founded in 1918 under the brand slogan "Timeless. That is the mark of truly excellent design."

Since our founding, we have continued to create watches that combine timeless and unique design with functionality, and have continued to create automatic watches for over 100 years.

In the past, there was also a collaboration watch with "Hermes", and the brand name was added to the "Multifort" introduced this time, and it was sold with a Hermes leather belt attached.

This brand is highly acclaimed worldwide for both the functionality and design of its watches.


The Multifort introduced this time is a model that gained popularity as a pioneer of self-winding watches equipped with a half rotor.

The small case is solid and thick, and the octagonal case is impressive, and the polygonal case is rarely seen anywhere else, making this watch's unique design a big attraction.

 The dial is based on black, with Arabic numerals and pencil hands for a classic look.
Orange and yellow are used for the indexes and hands, giving it a modern feel.

The second hand is a small seconds specification at the 6 o'clock position.
Sunray treatment is applied only to the second hand dial, which not only improves visibility but also creates a three-dimensional effect on the dial.

This is a watch with a high level of design that has been carefully calculated from the placement of the indexes to the coloring.

The movement is equipped with automatic winding type Cal.816 .
It uses a half-rotator that rotates in half, and when in use, you can feel the "knock-knock" sensation of the rotor hitting the bumper.

Even today, there are many movement enthusiasts who enjoy the feeling of running a watch.


Size: Height: 35mm , Width: 30.4mm , Thickness: 10.6mm , Weight: 22g .

It has a small size characteristic of the 40 's.
Although it is small in size, it has a characteristic thickness that will perfectly decorate your arm.
It is a size that can be worn by both men and women.

Because it is a highly designed watch, it is easy to match with casual outfits such as denim and shirts.


In terms of condition, the case has only minor scratches and the edges remain firm.
The luminous paint on the dial shows signs of aging, but we have left it in its original condition so that you can enjoy the atmosphere of the time and there is no problem with legibility.
The movement is working fine.
