Mido Baroncelli Heritage
The Baroque-influenced neoclassical style of Milan's Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II expresses all the sophistication inherent to Italian architectural tradition. It was from these refined, rounded forms that Mido drew its inspiration for the Baroncelli. The subtle references to this prestigious building and its harmonious curves bestow both a rare sense of elegance and a resolutely timeless style on this iconic collection, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2016.
The two new Baroncelli Heritage models are the latest additions to a line characterised by its thin cases, which make it one of the thinnest and lightest timepieces on the market. Designed in pairs - a cherished Mido tradition - the Baroncelli Heritage was launched in 2016. The new 2017 arrivals are distinguished by their sumptuous white and grained dials, which reveal polished applied Roman numerals around their edge. These details further emphasise the classic style and timeless elegance of the two models. They also feature a magnificent round polished steel case with rose PVD treatment.
The dial features the Baroncelli Heritage signature at 6 o'clock, while the date can be read in a window at 3 o'clock. The hour and minute hands are double-sided, with one side sandblasted and the other diamond-cut. The seconds hand, meanwhile, is diamond-cut. These hands can be admired through the sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides that protects the dial. These two new light, graceful models echo vertical dancing and the dancers' bodies as they enhance the architecture.
The Baroncelli Heritage is fitted with an automatic movement protected by a case measuring 33 mm in diameter for the women's model and 39 mm for the men's model.The automatic movement Mido 1192 (ETA 2892A2 base) has a diameter of 25.60 mm, height 3.60 mm, 21 jewels and runs at 28,800 vph. Mido Baroncelli Heritage has a min. 42 hours of power reserve.
Enthusiasts of fine watchmaking mechanics will endlessly admire the finely decorated automatic movement, which features blued screws and an oscillating weight adorned with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo, through the transparent case back.
This movement is protected by a sapphire crystal offering a perfect view of the heart of the watch. Water-resistant up to a pressure of 3 bars (30 m/100 ft), these two Baroncelli Heritage models come with a semi-matt black crocodile-look genuine calfskin strap. They feature a stainless steel pin buckle with rose PVD treatment. Several versions complete this collection.
