Ocean Star Automatic
The Mido Ocean Star Now Comes in Two New Dial Colors
Mido’s Ocean Star line of dive watches just got an upgrade in the form of two colorways, a navy blue dial and a (vaguely moss-like) green dial, both of which sport pink gold-colored PVD steel cases (as seems to be Mido’s wont, these days). The blue-dialed version, sporting a blue fabric strap, and the green, sporting a brown leather strap, both feature the automatic Mido Caliber 80 (ETA C07.621 base), an Elaboré-grade movement adjusted in 3 positions for increased accuracy that includes day-date functionality and 80 hours of power reserve.
The 42.5mm stainless steel case on both models features a pink gold PVD treatment as well as a unidirectional rotating bezel with insert that matches the respective dial color, plus a sapphire crystal with AR coating, screw-down crown and case back, and 200m of water resistance. While the watch industry seems to finally be trending away from oversized watches, if you’re that guy who prefers a larger dive watch, or if you want in something other than a steel or black PVD finish, one of these new Ocean Stars could be the option for you.
