Mido Watches has a century their own in producing many, if not, all their Swiss-made watches with dexterity and prowess. All of their timepieces, even until today, unveil such essential traits without merely putting out their brand name without many credentials. Skilled watchmaking has seen from the production of artisanal enameled dials ladies timepieces to the auction-worthy Bughatti's "egg-shaped grill" watches since 1925. Another high strength of Mido derives from their pioneering of durable tool watches like their Ocean Star Commander, and the Multifort collections since 80 years ago. Focusing on the Commander- a watch collection created in 1959, started as their extreme water-resistant with their Aqauadura cork gasket and the Permit crystal (pressure-fitted). Today we would like to introduce the Mido Commander 1959 Silver Ref. M8429.4.21.23.

Mido Commander 1959 Silver Ref. M8429.4.21.23

Let's dive into the dimensions of this Mido, available in 316L stainless steel monocoque case measuring at 37mm wide and 37mm from lugs to lugs, totally a perfect fitting and proportion even for the small wrists group. The  retro Commander nails best would be its thickness. At 10.5mm in height, keeping its thin and elegance for anyone to strap on and out for corporate meetings and dinner dates at your favorite restaurants. The case is sophisticated from the top; for an instant, the thin bezel creates more dial and old-school dress watch look. And the integrated bracelet design allows one to feel sturdy with much wearability and then some. All these little details enhance the wrist presence and experience for the wearer thoroughly. The case bears intricate satin-polished finishing on its case band, while sandwiched by its full polished case back and bezel.

            
Grained texture sunray dial

One glance underneath the high domed acrylic crystal of the Commander its all dial display done with applied markers for its hour, done with multi-facets. The sunburst silver dial is only disrupted elegantly at the side 3 o’clock with an old school date display. The handset further mimics the hour markers, done metallic silver with matching facets and luminous. Also, the only additional information on the dial would be the applied Mido logo at the top with printed “Automatic datodate” at 9’o clock and “Commander” on the bottom of the dial keeping things well-balanced.

One-piece case design with perfect round shape
If the dial has that fifties charm, the movement ticking inside is sophisticatedly modern. The Swiss movement inside lies the key for its slimness- the automatic Mido’s caliber 11.5  based on the ETA C07.621. The 25-jewel automatic Caliber 80.6211 is Mido proprietary name for their 80 hours power reserve ETA movement. Its frequency reduced to 21,600 Hz for and an improved mainspring capacity. The caliber 80 inside the Commander makes it so value-driven as it hoods one of the highest-quality movements today at an exceptional price point.

Lastly, paring genuinely with the integrated stainless steel “Y” links bracelet reflects certain sportiness and versatility. The bracelet contributes much to the design architecture and the appeal of this Commander 1959. The geometric design complements the case.

Superluminova on every hour markers and handset
The Commander 1959 watch has been produced without interruption since that year. The integrated bracelet and the vintage Mido logo are typical of this iconic model as well as the monocoque case housing an automatic movement. Everything on the Mido Commander has been piece together beautifully in both the design and how its executed — offering incredible details that make it one of the most refined pieces in the collection. One can now be a very satisfying watch to wear the Commander every day while still able to admire its old school charm.
