The new 18K Rose Gold MIDO Baroncelli III chronometer replica watch, which is set to be revealed at Baselworld 2011 show, combines a chronometer-grade Swiss made movement with an elegant, classic shape of the case.
Maybe that’s because the recipe for a successful classic timekeeper is known for ages: take a round case, add standard Roman or Breguet-style Arabic numerals, mix it with engine-turned dial and serve it on a leather strap. Here we go: another classic watch that will sell like hot pancakes.
Although MIDO watch replica is not especially good when it comes to modern-styled watches, their classic timepieces are extremely attractive.
This new MIDO Baroncelli III Rose Gold 18K model, for example, sports a tried and true combination of 18-carat rose gold case and hands and a silver-toned dial, which is adorned with finely executed guilloche pattern.
Although the Barocelli III Rose Gold 18K is powered with a mass produced ETA 2836-2 automatic movement, it is still a high-grade job, officially certified by COSC as a chronometer.
The movement is also decorated with Cotes de Geneve stripes and sports blued screws. Its oscillating weight is adorned with the corporate logo and is perfectly visible through a transparent case back.
Being only 39 millimeters in diameter, the case looks absolutely classic (or even vintage) so the watch may be worn with any type of formal attire without raising eyebrows or turning heads, like it sometimes happens when you wear a dressy sports Mido copy watch.
