“Powerwind,” that’s how Mido called its most powerful caliber in the fifties. Now the Swiss brand pays tribute to this “workhorse” with a limited edition of 1,954 pieces. While the 40-mm stainless steel watch follows the rhythm of the contemporary COSC-certified ETA 2836-2 caliber, it borrows the style-defining attributes of its historic predecessor.
These include the original brand and model logo, the slightly domed sunburst dial in midnight blue which is protected by a box-style sapphire crystal, and the distinctive rose gold-colored hands and indices. At three o’clock, the Multifort Powerwind Chronometer Limited Edition, which comes on a seven-row link metal bracelet, indicates the day of the week and date.
The new Mido Multifort Powerwind Chronometer Limited Edition will retail for approximately $1,200 when converted to USD.

The Oris Aquis with day/date complication and similar style and price point looks so much better than this Mido. It’s no contest.
