After a number of strong offerings at Baselworld, Mido is coming back with a new variant of the Multifort, this time featuring a chronograph. The new Multifort Caliber 60 includes many of the same design features as the popular Multifort Dual Crown (released at Baselworld this year). The colors on the two watches (including the vibrant orange on the inner bezel) is one similarity, while another can be found on the dial (the Geneva stripes). The case has both satin and polished finishes, a feature which is preferred by many. The case measures a healthy 44mm in diameter and has three crowns (all of which screw down) and two pushers. The three o'clock crown, the ten o'clock crown, and the eight o'clock crown are used to set the time, set the date, and rotate the inner bezel, respectively. While the hour, minute, and second hand share the same white superluminova as the dial, the chronograph hands have orange superluminova, allowing both the elapsed and local time to be read with ease. Inside is the Mido Caliber 60 (the name sort of tips it off), a variant of the ETA A05H31. The movement has 27 jewels, 28,800BPH, and a power reserve of 60 hours. I can see Mido having a very successful future if they continue to release watches such as this one.
