Mido: a set of new Belluna Royal timepieces

Mido is subtly revisiting its Belluna collection and giving it a chic and rebellious new face thanks to a cushion-shaped case. The timepiece’s design is inspired by London’s Royal Albert Hall.

T

he Belluna Royal, with its harmonious shapes and dial stamped with a guilloché-style sunray motif, is inspired by London’s Royal Albert Hall, where rock concerts and ballets readily share the spotlight. The fruit of watchmaking tradition, its heart beats to the rhythm of a latest-generation automatic movement: the Caliber 80, featuring a rare power reserve of up to 80 hours.

Mido is introducing this charming reinterpretation with a “So British” twist on a pair of watches – for him and for her – featuring deep royal blue dials.

The Belluna Royal Lady and Gent paired pieces present a timelessly chic face in a deep shade of royal blue stamped with a guilloché-style sunray motif. Available in a case diameter of 33 mm for slimmer wrists and 41 mm for men, the Belluna Royal displays the date – a particularly useful everyday function – at 3 o’clock on the Gent version and at 6 o’clock on the Lady version.

The entirely redesigned dauphine-shaped hour and minute hands – both faceted and diamond-cut – and the flat diamond-cut seconds hand glint on the dial next to the faceted indexes on the men’s version and the polished round markers on the women’s model. In a subtle, precious detail, three diamonds punctuate the Belluna Royal Lady at 3, 9 and 12 o’clock.

The radiant, polished bezel of the Belluna Royal sits atop the similarly polished steel cushion-shaped case that has been specially revisited by Mido with this incredibly chic touch of originality. The transparent case back reveals the Caliber 80, an automatic mechanical movement designed in the Swiss watchmaking tradition and finely decorated with Geneva stripes. A black crocodile-look cow-leather strap completes both Belluna Royal timepieces.
