Are you a diver or planning to dive anytime soon? If the answer is yes, then you likely need a dive watch on your wrist. Not only to tell time, the diving timepiece will keep you looking stunning underwater. Just like its name, this Mido dive watch series ⎯ Ocean Star ⎯ would make you the star of the ocean once you dive into it. Here are two examples of Mido dive watch that carry advanced technology on a fashionable design.

Ocean Star Captain Black - Rubber Ref. M026.430.17.051.00

Incorporate the Swiss Made standard, Mido once again impresses watch collectors with modernity on its dive watch series. When others are trying to make everything vintage, Mido company makes headway in the battle by presenting the opposite trends. It is the Ocean Star Captain Black - Rubber Ref. M026.430.17.051.00 that I am talking about.

Having a diameter of 42.5mm and a height of 11.75mm can be considered as a big watch, but it rests perfectly on my wrist which usually wears a 34mm width timepiece. Not to forget to mention the cool black water-repellent rubber strap that sticks snugly to my hand and boosts my sporty style. Surprisingly, with the size and the rubber strap, this Mido dive watch feels as light as a feather.

Entering the dive watch realm, Mido is featuring a 120 black tone bezel with Super-LumiNova that allows it to rotate in an anti-clockwise direction and locks into its position. 

As a pioneer of water-tight cases in the early 30s, Mido dive watch sets up its water-resistance to a pressure of 20 bars (200m). It is definitely safe to be worn at any marine occasions or just for having a beach day on weekends to get tan.

Take part as what your sunblock does to your skin, this Mido dive watch ⎯ Ocean Star Captain Black Rubber Ref. M026.430.17.051.00 ⎯ also gets its own sun protector on its flat sapphire crystal. It is resistant to ultraviolet (UV) which means this best dive watch under $1000 is unaffected by sun exposure. It prevents you from getting dazzled by the sun, especially when you want to know how long you have been sunbathing or diving.

Let’s move on to the last favorite feature of mine that this timepiece has. The Super-Luminova feature on the luminous handset allows me to see time clearly even if I was in the dark. It glows in a blue ocean colour that matches the theme of a dive watch. Add this Mido dive watch to your cart for $810.00 here.

Ocean Star Tribute Rose Gold Blue Ref. M026.830.38.041.00

But, if you look up a more colourful wristwatch, Ocean Star Tribute Rose Gold Blue Ref. M026.830.38.041.00 is the best choice to choose. It is one of Mido’s most iconic collections that was launched to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Ocean Star series. What makes it iconic is that the watch is actually a mixed design between the 1960s dive watch style and modern traits. A classy yet tough watch to wear underwater.

Built in a durable case of 316L gold PVD stainless steel featuring a corrosion resistance makes this watch become an unbreakable accessory. You won’t even feel sorry if the watch accidently hits a rock. It is the rock that gets into trouble because it’s blocking this chic Ocean Star’s way. 

The case which is 40.5mm abroad and 51mm lug to lug is right for any wrist size. It even amazes me how Mido combines the blue colour of a 120-click unidirectional rotating aluminium bezel with gold-tone case very well that injects the fancy impression for those who see it for the first time. Plus, the entire case is finished with a glossy high polish allowing it to shine glamorously at days and nights. 

To secure the watch from slipping off your wrist, Mido pairs the Ocean Star Tribute Rose Gold Blue Ref. M026.830.38.041.00 with a premium 21mm blue nylon fabric strap and cow leather on the underside for great comfort that you have never experienced before.

Now it is time to discuss how clean the blue dial on this Mido dive watch is. Each part of the dial ⎯ hour markers, hands, a window date, logos ⎯ gets a balanced proportion. As well as being neat, it is easy to read both in a place full of light to the darkest one . It appears that Mido applies white Super-Luminova on the markers and hands, letting it glow when you wear it in the dark. Above that, the dial is protected by a glass-box scratch resistance that, at the same time, acts as an anti-reflective coating.

Lastly, the Mido Caliber 80 automatic movement supported by 25 jewel ETA CO7.621 modification lies on the Ocean Star Tribute Rose Gold Blue Ref. M026.830.38.041.00. It got 80 hour power reserve and water resistance to 200M (660 FT). If you're interested, here is the further detail of the iconic Ocean Star Tribute Rose Gold Blue Ref. M026.830.38.041.00.
