Mido Vintage Watch for Women that Never Go Out of Style
Offering value and a symbol of hundred years craftsmanship, vintage watches are prey to those watch hunters. A beautiful piece that every collector is competing for. It is unique and, most of the time, carrying culture and tradition while at the same time being super cool with their never-go-out-of-style design. Along with it, vintage watches always provide super cool features that make them stay for a long time. And shockingly, all these traits can be found in Mido vintage watch collections for women that we are going to introduce today.
Commander Icône Silvertone Ref. M031.631.11.031.00
Commander is a name of Mido’s watch collection in 1959 that was popular because of its extreme water-resistant. Years later, the Swiss watch company launches another Commander named Commander Icône Silvertone Ref. M031.631.11.031.00.
As a tribute to one of Mido’s most iconic models, the 1970s Ocean Star Commander Datoday, the Commander Icône exhibits beautiful neo-vintage design with a cool sunray satin-finished dial and the Milanese mesh bracelet that reminds us of the glory days of the Commander.
This vintage watch collection is made of a 42mm wide stainless steel case that is 11.42mm in height. It may seem a little bit bigger for the small wrists group, but do not worry. Mido has set the lugs tucked underneath the case so it stays superbly on all wrists. Moreover, have you noticed how Mido shows its elegance by producing a thin strap at 11.42mm in height which is perfect to wear on any occasions from having a brunch with friends or a dinner date with your loved one. This dashing vintage watch surely will boost your look.
It does not stop there because Mido still has more things to surprise the vintage watch hunters. It is the watch making process that turns out was influenced by the architecture of the Eiffel Tower. The Commander Icône Silvertone Ref. M031.631.11.031.00 reflects the magnificent and mighty Eiffel Tower, one of grand 18th-century architectures. This whole thing just implies how durable a Mido vintage watch is, and I 100% agree to that.
Let’s move on to the Commander Icône’s flat sapphire crystal that is neatly filled with silver hour markers, minute rehaut, date window, matte handset, “MIDO” logo, and AUTOMATIC” and “CHRONOMETER, OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED” printed on the top and bottom of the dial. The well-balanced proportion of the dial does enhance its legibility.
Contrary to the historical story behind the watch making process, lies a very modern movement inside the Commander Icône Silvertone called the automatic Mido’s COSC automatic caliber 80Si (ETA C07.621 base). It was named after the 80 hours power reserve that this Mido vintage watch has. COSC itself is the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute that certifies the accuracy of the Icône wristwatch. So, no doubt needed here if you are about to buy this Mido vintage watch collection.
Last but not least, it is time to discuss the fancy 24mm milanese mesh bracelet that is designed to last. It is strong enough to remain unharmed by water or heavy climate. Well, do you still need a second option after knowing the traits of this never-go-out-of-style vintage watch collection from Mido? I don’t. Grab it fast for $1,140.00 here.
Commander Shade Silver Ref. M84220.127.116.11
Speaking about the Commander series of Mido vintage watch collection, the company launched another appealing timepiece, Commander Shade Silver Ref. M8418.104.22.168 which also pays homage to the 1970s Ocean Star Commander Datoday, the most iconic model of Mido.
Looking fine in a round 37mm wide stainless steel case and 10.45mm in height, this Mido vintage watch is definitely made for women with small wrists. As a member in the small wrist group, I have grown fond of small wristwatches, and the Mido Commander Shade Silver is what I have been looking for. My favorite part is the 20mm Milanese mesh strap that moves seamlessly with the motion of the wrist. It is thin and elegant at the same time. Besides, the strong retro-ly feeling of the watch would fit any fashion styles from vintage, casual, chic, formal to artsy.
A little bit different from her sister, the Commander Icône, this Mido Commander Ref. M8422.214.171.124 has a bold print of “Mido” at the top and “Commander” at the bottom of the dial. It strengthens the vintage theme that it is carrying. Plus, the beautiful sunburst gradient of silver under the acrylic crystal successfully astonishes one who sees it for the first time, let’s say it’s me.
