Mido records confirm that the first of the four series of Bugatti watches they produced, was a batch of 54 pieces with serial numbers 200736-200789 inclusive, produced in 1925-26. Then three later series, two in gold and one in silver, were produced between 1929 and 1932, and were each of twelve pieces.

These watches were commissioned by Ettore Bugatti from Mido and given as gifts to his racing drivers and later to principal members of his factory staff.
