MIDO MULTI CENTER CHRONO BROWN DIAL
The Multi Center Chrono was introduced in the early 1940s and is undoubtedly one of the most famous and sought-after Mido watches. Its main feature is that it does not have chronograph sub-counters on the dial, but an additional hand that performs the function of the minutes subdial. The double chronograph hand is usually found only on split second watches, but not in this case, where one chronograph hand measures time in seconds and the other in minutes. Another important feature is that the waterproof case of the Multi Center Chrono was made by the famous Taubert / Borgel company, which is also known for manufacturing cases for very famous brands like Patek Philippe and Movado. The Mido Multi Center Chrono has been produced in countless versions over time. The most coveted are certainly those with special features like this specimen, whose dial has taken on a fascinating brown color over the years.
This Mido Multi Center Chrono is a very fascinating example of this model. It dates back to the 1950s and is in very good overall condition. The case has most likely never been touched, the dial with luminous Arabic hour markers has taken on a pleasant brown color, the Mido 1300 caliber (based on a Valjoux 23) is in excellent condition and works perfectly. Note also the Portuguese import stamp on the handle at 10 of the clock, an element that makes this rare watch even more exclusive.
