"A DISTILLATION OF TECHNOLOGY INSIDE AN EXTRAORDINARY SWISS DIVING WATCH"
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. Seventy-five years after the unveiling of its very first Ocean Star, MIDO has sought to improve its dive watch line. After decades of research and development, the Ocean Star 600 has become their modern mechanical dive watch it is today. Durability and robustness both inside out, which they are known since the 1940s for its unfailing water-resistance.
Until today, Mido took up the bold challenge of a resonating part of its watchmaking prowess in the form of the Ocean Star 600 Blackout M026.608.37.051.00 that we are about to introduce. The design cues strongly reflect on its MIDO SkyDive Diver and Diver Scuba, while pumping a distillation of technology inside, enabling it to explore the ocean's depths (up to 600m).

The Ocean Star 600 sized for modern tastes at a 43.5mm diameter case with a height of 14mm. The straightforward and robust design, which was archetypal that stamped the world of dive watches since its popularity of recreational diving in the 60s. But now the Ocean Star 600 furthers gets a full DLC treatment to increase its scratch-resistance and increasing the cool blackout factor, while bears their iconic straight lugs mid-case design with full satin-brushed polishing with polished bevels 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.
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 600 does meet this level through and through.
