Mido Multifort M Freeze

Well, who knows – here in the midwest, we’ve had a very odd (and warm) winter, so I’m not predicting anything for weather. If you’re thinking it’ll be cold – or just wishing it was cold – then there are watches to help you hold onto that. Yesterday, we wrote about one, and today we’ve another. Meet the Mido Multifort M Freeze.

What is it?

Well, by now, we should all be familiar with the Mido Multifort. The last time we looked at it was here, and that version was just one of a number in the Multifort family. This is a core piece of their lineup, and we think that this Mido Multifort M Freeze represents a sort of “base level” for the family. You’ve got a crisp three-hander with day/date that gives you all the functionality you need.

Why we like the Mido Multifort M Freeze

Aside from the clean simplicity (and the 80-hour power reserve), it’s all about that dial. The big interest is going to be in the brushed grain on that icy blue. That’s great, but what what really seals the deal here are those indices. You’ve got insets for the compass points, and then the pips. Those are nicely filled with lume. Overall, this gives a lot more visual interest to the dial – day or night – than you’d have with just a brushed dial.

Wrapping things up

Coming on a bracelet, the Mido Multifort M Freeze is going to be available for $960. We like Mido here, and think that this particular dial is a perfect transition color from winter into spring, and gives you that subtle pop of color that won’t overpower your wrist.
