Mido Presents Baroncelli Moon Phase Automatic Chronograph Watch

Jun 24, 2010
The famous Baroncelli line from the Swiss watch company Mido has been enhanced by a new chronograph, remarkable for its moon phase complication. An unrivalled blend of timeless elegance and advanced technology, the new Mido watch exudes the refinement inherent to all Baroncelli models. The new automatic chronograph acquires its unique character due to precise geometry, infinite care lavished on details as well as its balanced contours.

Hundreds of years ago, the simple reading of time was based on natural cycles, such as the year, the lunar month and the solar day. The first calendars, which appeared in ancient Rome, revealed the lunar months. Every day of the week, presented in these calendars, was devoted to a divinity, represented by a planet. Centuries went by, yet people remain fascinated by these celestial phenomena. This is eloquently proved by the creation of the Baroncelli moon phase automatic chronograph.

The new Mido watch demonstrates a charming case, rounded to the horns. Exquisite in its appearance, this timepiece successfully uses the benefits of the modern technology. On the front side, the watch case is assembled with a sapphire crystal, treated with double-sided anti-reflective coating. It ensures outstanding visibility of time indications and different complications in poor light conditions. The see-through case-back of the watch shows off the captivating details of the self-winding Valjoux movement, including its embellished oscillating weight.

The novel Baroncelli watch displays a moon phase indicator in the chronograph hour counter, positioned at 6 oclock. The minute counter, located at 12 oclock, includes two exhibition windows, indicating the day of the week and the current month. The date is indicated by a big hand, equipped with an arrow. It points to the numerals, arranged at regular intervals around circumference of the dial.

These counters are kept company by the third sub-dial, nestled at 9 oclock. It is equipped with two hands: the first is meant for the 24 hour scale, the second one serves to mark the progression of small seconds.

Alternatively, the Mido Baroncelli moon phase automatic chronograph watch can be offered with a stainless steel case and a bracelet, manufactured from the same material.
