Why we love it: Maybe it’s just us, but as far as we are concerned you can never have too many watches — watches are classic. They are one accessory that can move from the office to social gatherings, day to night seamlessly while elevating any outfit. The strength and design emphasized through Swiss watch makers, Mido, offers style and durability that will stand the test of time.
After 100 years of watchmaking history dedicated to the tradition and know-how Mido is tried and trusted. Finding a watch that is not only beautiful to look at, but that can withstand the functionality of a busy day-to-day life can be difficult. With cases made from high quality stainless steel, Mido watches are sleek and strong.
Inspired by the Eiffel Tower, the Commander series was created in 1959 and is made with hypoallergenic properties for comfort. It comes in a variety of appearances from rose gold to silver. What separates this watch is the fact it is water-resistant up to 165 ft, to make daily, or even extreme activities possible while staying stylish.
Often inspired by architecture, the Multifort line by Mido is no exception. Inspired by the aesthetics of the Sydney Harbour Bridge — force and strength — the Swiss automatic chronograph movement is key while the pairing of the black dial with the watches leather strap elevates a classic.
Any watch wearer or shopper has likely heard of sapphire crystal before (it’s the ‘glass’ face of the watch). Sapphire crystals have the same hardness and strength as natural sapphire gemstones without the colouring agents that give them their tonal hues. Here, the sapphire crystal in the Multifort line offers shock-resistance and durability and the incredible 330 ft. water-resistance makes this thing a near unstoppable force.
Who doesn’t want a watch that can withstand some adventure?
