Mido Baroncelli Mechanical Limited Edition

At less than 7 mm thick, Mido presents its slimmest mechanical watch to date: the new Baroncelli Mechanical Limited Edition.

F

eaturing a radiant combination of black lacquer and a polished rose gold-coloured PVD treatment, this streamlined, ethereal interpretation perfectly reflects the brand’s classic watch heritage. Its exclusivity lies in the limited-edition release of just 2,020 numbered timepieces. Its elegance, meanwhile, resides in its small seconds display at 6 o’clock. The design and the hand-wound mechanical movement, evoking pure watchmaking tradition, will delight the most refined connoisseurs.

A choice informed by elegance

Dedicated to fine watchmaking enthusiasts, the Baroncelli Mechanical Limited Edition perfectly represents Mido and its history, which has been marked by numerous creations with timeless designs. For the dial, Mido has chosen the deep black of polished lacquer. Diamond-cut hands and indexes with a rose gold-coloured PVD treatment stand out against this glossy background, while a small seconds aperture complete with central seconds hand is positioned at 6 o’clock. The Mido Mechanical signature and the “Limited Edition” inscription at 3 o’clock highlight the rarity of each timepiece in this exclusive series, as does the individual number engraved on the case back.

Slim and sophisticated mechanics

Since its foundation in 1918, Mido has been renowned for the high-quality mechanical movements equipping its watches. Driven by a hand-wound calibre, the Baroncelli Mechanical Limited Edition evokes one of the most symbolic gestures in mechanical watchmaking: winding the movement using the crown. This calibre, which is approximately 2.5 mm thick, makes the Baroncelli Mechanical Limited Edition the slimmest mechanical timepiece to be offered by the brand. In keeping with tradition, Geneva stripes adorn the components, which are visible through a sapphire crystal case back. Making a beautiful statement on the wrist with its luxurious colour contrasts, the Baroncelli Mechanical Limited Edition features a remarkably slim polished steel case with rose gold-coloured PVD treatment (less than 7 mm thick). The sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective treatment on both sides to ensure excellent dial legibility. As elegant as it is perfect for everyday use, the watch is water-resistant up to a pressure of 3 bar (30 m /100 ft).

This refined timepiece has been paired with a black semi-matt crocodile-look leather strap and a folding clasp, providing an additional sophisticated detail that is inherent to fine watchmaking. Each watch in this numbered series of 2,020 timepieces is presented in a special case with an individual limited edition certificate.

With the Baroncelli Mechanical Limited Edition, Mido offers its slimmest mechanical timepiece to date, a pure expression of its classic watch heritage.
