The dual-timezone Mido Multifort GMT collection features three varieties with two models cased in stainless steel with PVD coating of black or rose gold and the other in simple stainless steel.

Adding to its retro look are its ultra-thin and stainless steel PVD rose gold coated bezel and large pushers. A contemporary touch is added in its deep blue dial display shielded with a box sapphire crystal.

History Behind the Mido Multifort Collection

Mido was first established in 1918 by Mr. Georges Schaeren, an ingenious Swiss watchmaker who founded MIDO G. Schaeren & Co. Mido ventured into automotive watch designs in the 1920s and its continued success went through the 1930s, inventing the cork-crown sealing system and introducing the Multifort line that made history as one of the first antimagnetic watches with a self-winding movement and built-in water- and shock-resistance. In 1935, the Mido Multifort collection introduced the Mido Multifort Automatic that boasts features such as anti-magnetic, waterproof, and shock resistance and has become one of the first to carry these features. 

Since then, the Multifort has greatly evolved into several varieties from chronometers, GMT, to chronograph watches all boasting a sporty monochromatic look, often embellished with a dash of blue or orange in its dials and a hint of rose gold or other metals in its casing. The watches are either in 42 mm or 44 mm stainless steel PVD-coated casing with some models highlighting the famous Geneva stripes in its dial design.
