“TRIBUTE TO THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF AN ICONIC COLLECTION.”
Seventy-five years after the unveiling of its very first Ocean Star, MIDO is launching a special-edition series in homage to this iconic collection, known since the 1940s for its unfailing water-resistance.
These two new Ocean Star Tributes are a magnificent contemporary reinterpretation of the diver's watches created in the 1960s.

The Ocean Star is the brand's nautical dive watch collection that consists of the most modern Swiss Made divers in different color variants and strap combos. Every single piece from the collection is modernly designed both in and out, until today where Mido took up the bold challenge of reviving a resonant part of its watchmaking heritage in the form of the Ocean Star Tribute Black Ref. M026.830.11.051.00 that we are about to introduce. The design cues strongly reflect on its vintage 37mm MIDO SKYDIVE Diver and Diver Scuba, while the resemblance more closely to the latter for its hour markers.
The Ocean Star Tribute sized for modern tastes at a 40.5mm diameter case with a height of 13.4mm. The straightforward and robust design, which was archetypal that stamped the world of dive watches since its popularity of recreational diving in the 60s. The Ocean Star Tribute furthers bears their iconic straight lugs mid-case design with a mixture of high polish on all sides to enhance the tool-watch of the 60s look. The finishings done here, to be honest, is almost impeccable, elevating luxurious sides out from its shadow. The bezel is narrow like it supposed to be, rotating at 60 clicks crisply in an anti-clockwise direction. The case back has a beautiful surprise in store- decorated with a polished starfish in relief, the historical symbol of the Ocean Star.
