t may be small, but Mido’s new Baroncelli Lady Twenty Five knows how to be the centre of attention, in deep blue with captivating diamonds. Its delicate 25 mm-diameter steel case provides the backdrop to a midnight blue dial, illuminated by 12 diamonds, lending the piece a jewel-like lustre. The strap is also steel, and makes this new Baroncelli perfect for any occasion.
The Calibre 48 equipping the timepiece has an autonomy of up to 48 hours and boasts a Nivachron balance-spring, guaranteeing enhanced accuracy, with sophisticated dauphine-style hands complemented by a central seconds hand and a date at 3 o’clock.
The model’s rounded architecture echoes the curves of musical notes: the Rennes Opera House stands out both for its rich programme of performances and for the harmony of its neoclassical construction. From the top of its façade, statues of the Muses of Antiquity symbolically watch over the arts. Emblematic of Mido’s watchmaking expertise, the Baroncelli collection, created in 1976, celebrates the timeless beauty of this building.
The intense blue of the finely sunray satin-finished dial plays with the light. These deep shades are beautifully paired with the shimmer of the diamonds marking the hours. Elegant faceted dauphine-style hands and a diamond-cut flat central seconds hand hover over this sleek display, complemented by a date as practical as it is discreet, positioned at 3 o’clock.
Everything is harmoniously incorporated inside the polished steel case, its 25mm in diameter presenting graceful and balanced lines. The sapphire watch glass has an antireflective treatment on both sides, enhancing this elegant display and its readability.
Water resistant up to 5 bars (50 m/165 feet), the Baroncelli Lady Twenty Five matches its dynamic disposition to the rhythm of a mechanical core, visible through the transparent case back. In addition to its sophisticated finishes and oscillating weight embellished with Côtes de Genève and the Mido logo, the Calibre 48 offers a convenient power reserve of up to 48 hours and excellent accuracy thanks to the Nivachron balance-spring, protecting it from magnetic fields, shocks, wear and tear.
Finally, for those who like to vary their styles, Mido offers a Baroncelli Lady Twenty Five version in the rose-gold-coloured PVD casing, adorned with an elegant strap in semi-matt black leather.
