The Rennes Opera House is an operatic landmark characterised by its distinctive rounded architecture. The harmonious lines and subtle curves, typical of the neoclassical tradition, make it a particularly outstanding monument. The sophisticated forms of the Baroncelli collection pay tribute to the timeless elegance of this building. This collection, which epitomises Mido's watchmaking expertise, celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2016.
Baroncelli 2118 is a bold piece with a sophisticated and timeless aesthetic signature. It marks Mido out as a confidently forward-looking brand thanks to the contemporary touch added to its balanced lines and subtle curves. Its polished steel case with matte black PVD treatment reveals an anthracite dial with finishes of exceptional quality. Its sunray satin finish captures and diffuses the light to produce fascinating mirror effects. The stamped and rounded leaf-shaped hour and minute hands recall the elegance of the Baroncelli collection, and the Bordeaux red varnished small seconds hand lends this piece a powerful feel. They can be admired through the sapphire crystal, which protects the dial. This watch is a futuristic interpretation of a timeless model and will delight devotees of beautiful timepieces.
The transparent case back of this limited edition reveals the finely decorated cutting-edge movement and its oscillating weight decorated with Geneva stripes and Mido logo. The movement also features a small seconds at 6 o’clock: a petite complication particularly dear to Mido as it has been used in the collections since 1934. It is housed in a 38 mm polished steel case with matte black PVD treatment. Water-resistant to a pressure of 5 bar (50 m / 165 ft), this bold piece is fitted with an elegant Cordura fabric strap on leather base, renowned for its ability to stand the test of time. Mido has painstakingly added a black plaque engraved with 100th Anniversary. The black PVD-treated stainless steel folding clasp adds an extra touch of modernism to this model.
The Baroncelli 2118 reflects Mido's confidence in its future and has been specially developed to commemorate the company’s 100th anniversary. It is available as a limited edition of 2,118 numbered pieces and comes in a special case.
