FUSION OF FUNCTIONALITY, BEAUTY AND CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY EXCLUSIVELY AVAILABLE AT DFS

 

Leading travel retailer DFS is proud to partner with Swiss watchmaker Mido in launching a special edition of the Multifort Chronometer, available only at select DFS airport and downtown Galleria locations. Fitted with a new face and a movement that is at the forefront of watchmaking expertise, the Multifort Chronometer DFS Special Edition updates the design codes of this iconic collection, fusing the architectural inspiration that Mido is known for with cutting-edge technology.

Launched in 1934, two years after Australia’s Sydney Harbour Bridge was completed, the Multifort collection shares the structure’s remarkable qualities – a perfect blend of functionality and beauty. A truth that has stood the test of time, as this year Mido celebrates the 85th anniversary of Multifort production, making this one of the longest-produced collections in the history of Swiss watchmaking. The Multifort Chronometer DFS Special Edition is unique in this historic collection, featuring a robust case in satin-finished and polished steel and a diameter of 42mm. The DFS edition is the first model to be fitted with the Caliber 80 Si – usually reserved for luxury watchmaking, this COSC-certified chronometer movement features a silicon balance-spring and provides outstanding accuracy, together with shock-resistance and exceptional autonomy of up to 80 hours. Decorated with blue screws, an oscillating weight adorned with Geneva Stripes and the Mido logo, this automatic chronometer movement can be admired through the transparent case back. The Multifort Chronometer DFS Special Edition is a must-have item for those who seek to combine sleek style with the latest technology.

 

A chic timepiece with a resolutely contemporary look, the Multifort Chronometer DFS Special Edition offers both a satin-finished stainless steel bracelet and a black crocodile genuine calfskin strap to complement the wearer’s mood or style.

DFS proudly brings the Multifort Chronometer DFS Special Edition to global travelers, luxury shoppers and discerning customers who value unique and iconic timepieces.
