 ‘Inspiration’ and ‘eternity’ are the essence of the brand that Swiss Mido has been pursuing since its birth. In the past century, Swiss Mido has been creating a series of high-quality watches, while always insisting on creative breakthroughs in watch design, and strives to make the true classic design eternal in the passage of time. His artistic explorations complement the spirit of classic architecture that has stood the test of time. When the persistent traditional Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship meets the magnificent Chinese architectural miracle, the timeless inspiration that emanates from it can turn the moment into eternity and make the classics exquisite. As a symbol of a great era, the Great Wall not only narrates the vicissitudes of the Chinese nation, but also witnesses a splendid historical moment. This magnificent historical building has ignited the extreme creative inspiration of the Swiss Mido watch designer, making subtle choices in the connection, sublimating the architectural art and cultural connotation of the Great Wall into the design inspiration of the watch, and forever for the Chinese people. Proudly integrated into the watchmaking concept of Mido Watch, the traditional Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship is mingled with China’s long-established historical architecture, and a new masterpiece has emerged. The new Great Wall series watches are a wonderful fusion of classic architecture and watchmaking inspiration. The shining inspiration proves the eternal beauty spirit, so that everyone with a Great Wall watch can become an inspirational creator.

 Swiss Mido’s new Great Wall watch draws inspiration from the Great Wall, a classic Chinese building, and creates timeless beauty on the wrist. When the dancers vividly interpreted the traditional Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship and the long-standing historical building of China, time was frozen in this magnificent building full of historical vicissitudes, and the audience’s thoughts followed this building. The constant change of artworks travels through different time and space, and feels the unique artistic breath and beauty of architecture left in different times. And when wearing models of the Swiss Mido Great Wall series watches, each model seemed to represent the elf of the wisdom of Chinese children, walked out of the Great Wall, and refracted through the process of ‘building’. The Great Wall is a classic building with a simple and elegant atmosphere. Wearing the Great Wall watch on your wrist is like boarding the Great Wall beacon. Here you look back and look forward to the future. I believe that the inspiration storm brought by Swiss Mido watches in 2013 will definitely make the audience experience the artistic charm of watches that blend classic architecture with flowing time.
