Founded in Switzerland in 1918 by George Schaeren, Mido is today based in the town of Le Locle, in the heart of the Swiss Jura mountains. The name Mido comes from the Spanish "Yo mido", I measure.
Timelessness is the mark of true design.
Mido's philosophy is to combine timeless design with functionality rather than following fashion trends. True design outlives all fashion trends. The objective is to create timepieces made of high quality materials, endowed with precise movements and offering outstanding water-resistance in order to last a long time.
The watches are sold through 2000 authorized retailers in 50 countries around the world.
Mido's movements are based on very strict quality criteria.
Adjusted in 3 positions for high precision
High quality Nivaflex NO barrel springs for long term accuracy
A decorated oscillation weight
Incabloc for a better shock-resistance.
Most models are endowed with a transparent caseback in order to see the beauty of the movement.
Mido's collection also offers a series of Chronometers. A chronometer is a high precision automatic movement tested in several positions and at different temperatures by the COSC (Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres).
The Mido's watches are designed to be on the wrist 24 hours a day. For water-resistance up to a pressure of 3 bar (30m) and 5 bar (50m), Mido watches benefit from crowns with joints made of synthetic material. For water-resistance up to 10 bar (100m) or more, the crown is screwed down and the construction of the case is made differently in order to withstand higher pressure.
In 1934, Mido invented the unique Aquadura cork crown sealing system. It ensures complete water-resistance with a specially treated piece of natural cork, which is nestled around the crown shaft. A secret treatment keeps the cork moist and thus preserves its elasticity for years. Even if the crown is not fully pushed in, it is still water-resistant. Aquadura is designed for frequent contact with water up to a pressure of 5 bar (50 m) but not for deep water diving.
Only the best materials known in the Swiss watch industry are used by Mido.
The cases and bracelets are all made of high quality 316L stainless steel.
The coating for the golden and bicolour models is made with the PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) surface treatment method. This gives the watch not only an attractive finish but is also very tough and protects it effectively against scratching and corrosion.
Mido is one of the few brands offering automatic Titanium models.This high tech material is often used in the field of aeronautics and surgery and the advantages compared with steel are that it is much lighter, corrosion free and hypoallergenic.
The synthetic sapphire, commonly called Corundum, possesses a crystalline structure, and physical and chemical properties which are identical to those of natural ruby and sapphire. Usually its purity is superior.
As a completely stable substance, with hardness exceeded only by the diamond, corundum is selected for applications which are beyond the possibilities of traditional materials.
Corundum is used for the functions of guiding, transmissions and isolation. It resolves problems related to friction, ageing, corrosion, etc.
