"THE COMMANDER CELEBRATES THE UNCEASING HOROLOGY PRODUCTION SINCE 1959”

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 Icône Silvertone Ref. M031.631.11.031.00.

Mido Commander Icône Silver Ref. M031.631.11.031.00

The Commander Icône watch pays homage to one of Mido's most iconic models. Its neo-vintage design adopts most of the codes responsible for the Commander's success: extremely pure lines, maximum space granted to the superb sunray satin-finished dial, and the Milanese mesh bracelet.

Let's dive into the dimensions of this Mido, hearkening back to a more “traditional” era. Available in perfectly round stainless steel case measuring at 42mm wide and 11.42mm in height. The lugs that hold the bracelets are tucked underneath the case, resulting in almost perfect fitting and proportion even for the small wrists group. The Commander Big Date nails best would be its thickness. At 11.42mm 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 what’s more, is the bezel setting flushed with its mid-case that elevates the simple elegance of yesteryears while feeling sturdy with much versatility 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 screw-in case back and bezel.

Speaking on architecture influence, the Commander line influenced by the architecture of the Eiffel Tower in France, constructed in 1887. The Commander Big Date reflects this unceasing robustness and grandeur of the 18th-century architecture that the Eiffel Tower beholds. If anyone of you has been to the Eiffel Tower, once knows the 1063 ft tall lattice structure plays an essential factor in the spectacular grand charm of the 18th-century. If anyone of you disbelieve this, I strongly suggest heading there and spend some time there. Within minutes you will be enticed by its construction where the grandness absorbed into you, creating a sort of elevated mood.

COSC automatic caliber 80Si based on the ETA C07.621
That same experience is adopted here when one glance underneath the accentuated flat sapphire crystal of the Commander Icône. It's all dial display done with silver applied markers for its hour, done with multi-facets and luminous at their tips. Flanged by the sloped minute rehaut, the grey sunray dial seems to radiates certain depth when one views at it. The grey dial is only disrupted elegantly at the 3 o’clock with a day/date display, keeping it as a practical everyday wear.T he handset further mimics the hour markers, done rose gold 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” and “Chronometer, officially certified” on the top and bottom of the dial keeping things well-balanced.

If the dial has that 18th-century charm, the movement ticking inside is sophisticatedly modern. The Swiss movement inside lies the key for its slimness- the automatic Mido’s COSC automatic caliber 80Si based on the ETA C07.621- is Mido proprietary name for their 80 hours power reserve with a silicon hairspring for better longevity. Its frequency reduced to 21,600 Hz for and an improved mainspring capacity.
Assuring the wearer with tight accuracy as it certified by the COSC, the official Chronometer certification agency of Switzerland. The caliber 80 inside the Commander makes it so value-driven as it hoods one of the highest-quality movements today at an excellent price point Best part yet, one can be seen from the see-through case back of the Commander.

Lastly, paring elegantly with the 24mm black Milanese mesh bracelet that moves seamlessly with the motions of the wrist. Its distinctive mesh structure first produced in the city of Milan in the 19th century. This material channels classic Italian elegance and a timeless aesthetic for the wearer. Further, it provides superior breathability and a characteristic nostalgic look that is extremely desired.

Everything on Mido Commander Icône Silvertone Ref. M031.631.11.031.00 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 what ticks inside it now and then with unique classic design with 80 hours of power reserve.
