Unveiling The Mido Multifort Skeleton Vertigo Blue Watch

The blue dial Multifort reveals inner beauty with technical prowess.


In 1918, a spark of watchmaking innovation ignited, giving birth to Mido. From day one, they’ve been obsessed with three things: building watches that last, function flawlessly, and push the boundaries of tech. Fast forward to 1934, and they unleashed the iconic Multifort: an industry game-changer packing in water resistance, shock proofing, and anti-magnetism before anyone else even thought it was cool. Now, the Multifort story gets a fresh chapter with the mesmerizing Skeleton Vertigo Blue. This beauty bares its soul, letting you peek into the intricate dance of gears and springs that make it tick. It’s a stunning blend of cutting-edge tech and head-turning design, and now we’re going to take a quick look at it.

At 42mm, this stainless steel case isn’t messing around, but it still manages to fit snugly on your wrist at just 10.6mm thick. It’s like a pocket watch went sleek, a study in both toughness and good looks. The polished bezel and chunky crown gleam like a confident smirk, contrasting playfully with the brushed sides that hint at an adventurous spirit. And thanks to a tough sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides, you can wear this Multifort anywhere, from boardroom to beach, without sacrificing clarity. Plus, it’s got a hefty water resistance, 100 meters to be precise, making it your perfect all-weather partner in crime.

The dial of the Multifort Skeleton Vertigo Blue features an openworked section in the center, revealing the automatic Calibre 80 movement. The outer ring of the dial is a deep blue color and features vertical Geneva stripes. Applied and faceted hour markers with Super-LumiNova® provide legibility in low-light conditions. The central minute track is also raised and features lume. The hour and minute hands have a three-sided design and are filled with Super-LumiNova®, while the seconds hand is flat and diamond-cut.

The Multifort Skeleton Vertigo Blue ticks with the reliable Mido Caliber 80, a Swiss powerhouse boasting an 80-hour reserve (weekend-proof!). A high-tech Nivachron™ spring shields it from magnetism, shocks, and even temper tantrums. From boardroom to beach, it transitions seamlessly thanks to a sporty bracelet and see-through case back. All yours for CHF 1,080 or EUR 1,200 at authorized Mido retailers.
