The Baroque-influenced neoclassical style of Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II served as inspiration for the watch's design.

Mido introduces the Baconcelli Big Date Limited Edition, a stunning timepiece with a magnificent deep-blue sunray satin-finished dial.

At 6 o’clock, it showcases the Big Date signature: a wide polished and sandblasted date aperture that is one of the largest on the market in this price segment.

Its dial is protected by an elegant round polished-steel case enhanced by a double-gadrooned bezel, both of which feature a rose-gold-coloured PVD treatment.

Fitted with a blue crocodile-look strap in genuine cow leather, and is equipped with a cutting-edge automatic movement, and in addition to its original date display, the Caliber 80 with large date aperture offers formidable autonomy, with up to 80 hours of power reserve.

The wide two-level date aperture – one of the largest on the market in this price segment – instantly conveys the unique style of Big Date timepieces. The edge of the dial features polished applied Roman numerals featuring a rose-gold-coloured PVD treatment. The Big Seconds hand, meanwhile, is diamond-cut.
