Mido Baroncelli II and III
The Baroncelli model from Mido is a very elegant and sophisticated dress watch. The timepiece is less than 10mm thick (7mm for Baroncelli II) and yet has a lot of wrist presence with its 40mm diameter. The calibre 80 automatic movement, offering a generous 80-hour power reserve, can be seen through the glass case back. The sapphire crystal protects the clean looking dial, which feature a date window which located either at 3 or 4 o'clock depending on the model reference.
