History of Mido watches

alk of vintage watches and one name that springs to the mind immediately is  Mido. Mido continues as a strong favorite among the watch collectors of the  world today. Mido has rolex replica been a name to reckon with throughout its history of  over 80 years, with watches that are meant for watch connoisseurs and  discerning users. It specializes in mid price range watches that offer  something special and out of the ordinary. Mido prides itself with making  timeless watches.

Mido’s history goes back almost 90 years to 1918, when the company was  born. Mido was started on November 11, 1918 by George G. Schaeren in  Biel, Switzerland. Mido is a Latin term that means measuring. Since its very  inception, Mido has been in the forefront of technical innovation and timeless  designs.

The next several decades that followed the birth of the company, saw Mido  advancing both technologically and aesthetically. While path breaking  innovations such as the first replica breitling automatic watch, the first watch with  unbreakable springs, the first center chronograph, the world’s most powerful  winding mechanism, and the world’s smallest ladies’ watch hall marked the  technological advances, Mido’s collaboration with luxury brands threw up  unique and attractive designs like the Mido Bugatti.

In 1934, Mido introduced the Multifort model, the first rolex replica watches in the market to  have a self-winding movement. The introduction of this automatic watch for  the first time in the market was a major milestone in the history of Mido. The  watch was also shock resistant, anti magnetic and water resistant – all firsts  at that time. Mido reached yet another milestone in the same year when it  introduced watches with unbreakable springs. This was also the first time  that any company had introduced such springs in the market.

Mido was the first to introduce center chronograph (a watch with all hands  arranged in the center) in the year 1945. In 1954 the company introduced the  world’s most powerful winding mechanism. In 1967 Mido was recognized as  the maker of the world’s smallest ladies’ watch.

With so many firsts to its credit and a history of innovations, it was small  replica omega wonder that Mido was in the forefront for a number of decades. Mido’s first  automatic, anti-magnetic and water resistant watch remained in the forefront  for over three decades right through to the sixties. Another model, the Mido  Robot was a symbol of robustness in the fifties. So much so that a famous  comic strip of the period was dedicated to the Mido Robot and its  adventures.

Mido introduced its commander model in 1959. This was a single shell  watch, the first of its kind and a novelty at the time. The single shell case  revolutionized the industry, and improved the life span of watches  significantly. Mido commander has survived to this day, and is among the  most highly recognized watches with several individual models. Among the  models featured under this range is an 18 karat gold model. The range also  includes chronographs and COSC certified chronometers.

In 1970 Mido introduced the Aquadura Crown Sealing system, an innovation  that earned a place for it as the king of waterproof watches. The Aquadura  crown sealing system uses a natural cork that is treated and shaped to  ensure the water resistant characteristics. This is used to seal the crown, which is the part that is most prone to, and affected by, water leakage.

In the nineties, the Mido World Timer was introduced. This was a functional  watch that could show the local time at any part of the world. The user had to  just bring the concerned city to the 12 o’clock position and press the crown  to see the local time in that city.

Mido is today a part of the Swatch group, which is a vibrant organization with  over 150 production centers all over the world. Most of the production  centers are in Switzerland, with the rest spread over countries like France, Italy, Germany, Thailand, Malaysia and China. Swatch group also owns  brands such as Omega, Longines, Rado, and many more.
