Mido presented the Ocean Star Tribute Gradient, a new diver's watch characterised by a unique retro look inspired to the swinging 1960s.
Water resistant up to a pressure of 20 bar (200 metres / 660 feet), the Tribute Gradient comes in a fully polished stainless steel case with a diameter of 40.5 mm, hence suitable for both men and women, and equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel with black aluminium ring and silver-coloured markings to calculate immersion time.
A “glassbox”-style sapphire crystal protects the striking red gradient dial completed by printed indexes with white Super-LumiNova, day and date at 3 o’clock. The flat diamond-cut hour hands are also filled with white Super-LumiNova for improved readability, even in darker environments.
The movement of choice is the Mido Caliber 80 automatic movement (ETA C07.621 base) that beats at the frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vibrations per hour) and offers a remarkable autonomy of 80 hours, more than three full days.
The black rubber strap features a criss-cross design in relief, notched edges, an embossed underside and perforations to let the skin breathe.
With a price of Euro 850, the new Mido Ocean Star Tribute Gradient ref. M026.830.17.421.00 offers a truly excellent value for money.
The case back is embellished by a polished starfish in relief, the symbol of the Ocean Star collection and a nod to the historic expertise of the brand in water-resistance.
