Mido Multifort Datometer Limited Edition

In 2018, Mido is celebrating the 100th anniversary of its founding. To commemorate the centennial, it has been revisiting some of its most important models from the brand’s entire history. Chief among them is the Multifort Datometer Limited Edition, which is modeled after a 1939 watch by the same name, released five years after the original Multifort in 1934. This vintage piece held a number of defining characteristics, from its small steel case with “scalloped” lugs, dauphine hands, circular date indicator, and rounded “Super Automatic” script towards the bottom of the dial. Each of these elements, with exception to the specific script, were not uncommon for the era, yet few pieces connected them within a single design. While these original Datometers from the late ‘30s and early ‘40s are sometimes difficult to come by on the vintage market today, later models from the 1950s are frequently available for a few hundred dollars.

Beautiful watch and not too bad a price.
Too bad they fucked it up with the PVD rose gold.

I like the rose gold! It's the pointer date that's ghey.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I like the looks of this one. I think that date pointer thingy is kinda cool and I'm liking that rose gold a lot.

The steel version with the aged dial is the schiz.

They made the reissue more wearable by upsizing from 34 to 38mm. I agree though that the watch would be more desirable in stainless steel. The pointerdate is okay with me.
