The "Chronometer" certification guarantees the high accuracy of a watch or a movement.
The tests run by the COSC include the verification of the engraved number on the watch movement and controls in a testing environment. Each movement is individually tested following a strict procedure that lasts several days in five positions and at different temperatures (8°C, 23°C and 38°C). Over 15 days, the movements go though daily controls. Every day - including Saturday and Sunday - the instruments are measured and wound. If it meets the standards, the movement is "Chronometer" certified.
Caliber 80 Chronometer Silicon
Mido decided to enhance its flagship movement – the Caliber 80 – with a silicon balance-spring.
In addition to its anti-magnetic properties, this component, which is essential in luxury watchmaking, offers far greater long-term accuracy than a standard balance-spring and better shock-resistance. It is a COSC-certified chronometer watch and offers an exceptional autonomy of up to 80 hours of power reserve.
The extremely technical process of Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) coats watch components in a strong, impurity-free film to ensure continued resistance to corrosion. This microscopically thin layer boosts the watch’s hardness and robustness while enhancing its elegant aesthetics in beautiful shades of black, pink gold or yellow gold. Its hypoallergenic properties increase its universal appeal and allow for a range of applications.
Mido’s sapphire crystal glass reveals its spectacular dials in sharp relief. They afford excellent readability in a range of conditions while perfectly complementing the watches' elegant design. Strong and shock-resistant, they are made to last, maintaining their exceptional transparency for many years.
Moving seamlessly with the motions of the wrist, Milanese mesh envelops the skin to give the unique feel of a leather strap, but crafted from sleek and sophisticated metal. Its distinctive mesh structure affords it superior breathability and a characteristic look that is extremely desired. First produced in the city of Milan in the 19th century, this material channels classic Italian elegance and a timeless aesthetic.
