Tribute to the 75th anniversary of an iconic collection
Since the 1930s, Mido has been renowned for the ultra-high performance of its timepieces’ water-resistance system. Dedicated to the undersea landscape, its Ocean Star collection is the most dazzling symbol of this technology. Launched in 1944, this family epitomises the brand’s watchmaking know-how and is now celebrating its 75th anniversary with the launch of the Ocean Star Tribute. These two superb models make multiple nods to the diver’s watches of the 1960s. In Mediterranean blue or deep black, their sublime dials are protected by a box sapphire crystal and enhanced by a rotating bezel in the same colour. Their round, 40.5 mm-diameter cases and their supple, ultra-comfortable steel multi-link bracelets give them the magnificent retro look that was responsible for the success of the original models. These two Ocean Star Tributes are fitted with the Caliber 80, a cutting-edge automatic movement which provides them with a power reserve of up to 80 hours. In a final touch sure to delight lovers of detail, a starfish, the historical emblem of the Ocean Star, decorates the case back.
