Following the announcement of being appointed as Mido’s Asian ambassador, Kim Soo Hyun checks in at Mido again to present the new Multifort Patrimony Chronograph. This is a follow-up to the Ocean Star 200C watch that he promoted earlier this year.
At the intersection of elegance of the past and a mechanism of the present, the watch imaginarily takes us to Sydney when we look at it as this newbie is part of the Multifort collection that has been inspired by the iconic Harbour Bridge since 1934. The watch is a revival of one of the brand’s oldest and most emblematic chronograph models, the Multifort Multichrono from 1937.
Housed inside a 42mm polished and satin-finished stainless steel case with rose gold PVD treatment, the timepiece is decorated with a deep blue dial which is lied under a sanctuary of the “glassbox” sapphire crystal. The piece is also flanked by tachymeter scale around the edge, and guarded by small snailed counters at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock as well as date aperture at 6 o’clock.
Flipping to its back, the transparent case back reveals a complication of blued screws, the Geneva stripes – recalling the suspension cables on the Harbour Bridge – and Mido logo on the oscillating weight. Boasting a power reserve of up to 60 hours, the Multifort Patrimony Chronograph is completed with a touch of opulence with a crocodile-looking brown cow leather strap and a polished pin buckle treated with rose gold-coloured PVD.
