Inspired by the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Like all Mido luxury watches, the Mido Multifort is inspired by a work of art in architecture. In their case, the designers chose the Sydney Harbour Bridge, which is supposed to stand for power and strength. You can recognize the visual affinity of the watches by the curvature of the case and the clear vertical stripes on the dial. As one of the longest and heaviest bridges in the world, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is indeed an impressive symbol of power and strength. In Australia, however, it is also seen as a symbol of modernity and future. So what could be more fitting than to associate this structure with a modern and powerful timepiece?
The name Multifort also refers to the power of the Mido Multifort's design. It comes from Latin or Italian and consists of the prefix Multi and the word Fors or forte. Multi means a lot or many, Fors is the Latin word for strength and forte is Italian for strong, powerful and, especially in music, loud. So the name Multifort stands for a lot of power or many strengths, because since their beginnings in 1934, Mulitfort watches have been shockproof, waterproof and anti-magnetic.
