A pair of timepieces to celebrate eternal love
 
The Caliber 80 makes its debut in the Belluna collection with two new models designed to celebrate the passion between two beings. Just like its two-tone case and bracelet in stainless steel with rose PVD treatment, this pair is an expression of perfect complementarity. These two timepieces are fitted with a latest-generation automatic movement, the Caliber 80, which gives them up to 80 hours of power reserve. Classic models with harmonious and elegant lines, the Belluna Caliber 80 watches are a sparkling testimony to a unique story and to eternal love. 
 
Inaugurated in 1871 to promote the arts and science, London’s Royal Albert Hall is now one of the most renowned concert halls in the United Kingdom. Built in the inimitable Victorian style, this vast red-brick monument is comprised of several concentric circles and an impressive glass dome, which towers over the centre of this curved, resolutely rounded structure. Just like this magnificent building, the Belluna collection displays perfectly harmonious forms and embodies classic, timeless elegance.
 
The Belluna Caliber 80 falls within a longstanding tradition for watchmaker Mido of creating pairs of watches. Classic and extremely elegant, these two new models have been designed for all couples wishing to celebrate their love – a unique and eternal love, just like the timepieces created by Mido. With a diameter of 33 mm for the ladies’ model and 40 mm for the men’s model, the Belluna Caliber 80 features a two-tone case and bracelet in stainless steel with rose PVD treatment. The two colours complement each other in perfect harmony, granting the watch exceptional radiance. The silver dial is decorated with a delicate wave pattern, while the date can be read in an aperture at 3 o’clock. These two timepieces are fitted with a latest-generation automatic movement, the Caliber 80, which gives them up to 80 hours of power reserve. 
 
The dial of the Belluna Caliber 80 is protected by a sapphire crystal treated with an anti-reflective coating on both sides. The individually applied polished indexes are golden-rose in colour, as are the leaf-shaped hands. Enthusiasts of fine Swiss watchmaking mechanics will endlessly admire the finely decorated automatic movement, which features an oscillating weight adorned with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo, through the transparent case back. Water-resistant up to a pressure of 5 bars (50 m/165 ft), these two timepieces come with a two-tone stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp.
 
Several other pairs are also available in this line.

Mido's philosophy combines aesthetics, authenticity and functionality. The refined, understated designs of Mido timepieces endow them with a resolutely timeless quality. Beyond fashion and passing trends, Mido watches are thus distinguished by their durability. Mido shares these essential values with iconic and historic architectural glories. Cutting edge technical innovations, mechanical movements known for their excellence and high quality materials are the three pillars on which the brand’s unique expertise rests. For nearly a century, Mido has been a global benchmark in Swiss made mechanical watches.
