Why We Love it

When it comes to vintage chronographs, we love the heavy hitters just as much as the next guy. The Rolex Daytona, the Heuer Carrera, and the Omega Speedmaster all have special places in our hearts — and collections. But for every well-known name in the vintage watch world, there’s one or two that make us stop and say:

“Now this is why we got into collecting watches in the first place.”

The standard Mido Centerchrono alone is an awesome watch that stands apart from both the sports and classically styled chronographs from the mid 20th century with its unique, centrally-configured, minute counter hand tucked beneath the seconds counter hand. This particular Multi-Centerchrono however, is exceedingly special.

Sporting a 35mm stainless steel case made by François Borgel with an acrylic crystal, ‘holey’ lugs, ‘mushroom’ pushers, and an unsigned crown, this piece features a personalized dial signed with the American Medical Association’s serpent-entwined logo. Featuring red enamel ‘blood’ indices, it’s likely that this particular Centerchrono was a piece unique developed by the manufacture, for the professional association. 

The silver tritium dial has developed a patinated sheen and features printed, quadrant numerals, a matching ‘kite’ handset, a peripheral pulsations scale, and of course, the signature center minute and seconds chronograph hands; all of which are mechanized by a Mido signed, manually-wound Calibre 1300 17J column wheel chronograph movement.

A double-signed, off-the-beaten-path chronograph with an ultra-cool provenance?

Quick! Someone call a doctor! Not only because this chrono has got our hearts racing, but because it's the perfect watch for any MD!

Brand Story

+
We admit it, we do tend to get carried away pontificating about vintage watches. Whether it is the history of a particular piece or some oft-forgotten sidenote in the development of a particular case design or movement, there are numerous elements to vintage timepieces that make them so desirable. On the other hand, sometimes all it takes to get us excited about a particular timepiece are some killer looks.

With roots stretching back to 1918, the name Mido is a play on the Spanish phrase Yo mido - I measure.

The brand designed a host of interesting designs throughout the mid-20th Century, and even has some pretty impressive innovations in the industry, including anti-magnetic automatic wristwatches (the Mulitfort Collection) and monocoque case construction.

They even used a robot as their mascot... in 1939.

Seriously, pretty cool!
