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.

The Ocean Star is Mido's nautical dive watch collection that comprises the most up-to-date Swiss Made divers in different color variants and strap combos. The design of each piece from this collection boasts a contemporary twist.cEvery 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 and now with a GMT complication. 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. With an alluring retro style, vibrant colors and advanced technology, today’s timepiece, the Mido Ocean Star Decompression Worldtime Black GMT with a reference number of M026.829.17.051.00 is another proof of the brand’s quest for excellence. We explore the specifics of this stunning new timepiece below.

Mido Ocean Star Decompression Worldtimer GMT Black - Special Edition Ref. M026.829.17.051.00

The Ocean Star Decompression Worldtimer GMT sized for modern tastes at a 40.5mm diameter case with a lug-to luge distance of 47mm and 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 Decompression 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 features a traditional “Worldtimer” look and function It is narrow like it supposed to be, rotating crisply in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions. The case back has a beautiful surprise in store- decorated with a polished starfish in relief, the historical symbol of the Ocean Star. The bezel of this new Decompression Worldtimer might well be one of the most visually-packed ones in the whole collection. First of all, it accommodates the new time-zone function in which mimics the function of a worldtime, it features a scale with cities all around, so you can point at your current location and know the time difference in all 24 major towns around the world. 

Multi-colored display of decompression stops
Let us confess a little bit here, we at Gnomon Watches and we believe a lot of you do appreciate an excellent vintage re-issue, wait, we meant any, to be well finished in today's Swiss Made luxury standard! Kudos to Mido that the Ocean Star Decompression Worldtimer does meet this level through and through.

Indeed, Mido as the pioneer of watertight cases in the early 30s lives up to its name by ensuring that this timepiece enjoys a comfortable water resistance of 200 meters enabling you to participate in swashbuckling underwater adventures

SuperLuminova for Superb Glow In Dark
Now let's move on to what's underneath the ultra-resistant box-shaped sapphire crystal. The dial is now decorated with multi-colours in order to highlight its Worldtimer functionalities. Despite the complex look, the dial is well designed throughout with concentric scales to mark diving decompression times at different depths, flanged by its 24-hour scales and then block-shaped hour markers and the minute tracks for the  time reading., A red GMT hand is spot-on here to read a second time-zone, while it enhances legibility for the wearer. All these traits are the definition and a nod to dive watches of the '60s. Oh, Super-LumiNova® applied on the indexes and hands to ensure perfect readability, whatever the conditions.

In addition to its GMT and date functions, this 25-jeweled watch is powered by the Automatic Mido Caliber 80 movement (base ETA C07.661) and boasts a solid power reserve of up to 80 hours and a quickset function for the main hour hand. Thus you do not have to constantly worry about winding this timepiece.

Comes with additional bracelet

To complete the special edition package, the watch is delivered with a retrostainless steel polished Milanese mesh strap that comes with a sliding clasp. And in addition to that a sporty rubber strap with polished pin buckle that matches the dial and bezel colour. Each bands now come with quick-release spring-bars to let wearer change up the straps at ease.

All in all, this watch’s formidable retro vibes as well as its modern technology holistically caters to both nostalgic and contemporary tastes. Besides, the robust power reserve along with its clear-cut nautically inspired dial certainly adds to its value proposition.
