Ocean Star Tribute Blue Ref. M026.830.11.041.00

“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.

Mido Ocean Star Tribute Blue Ref. M026.830.11.041.00

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 Blue M026.830.11.041.00 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 features an azure blue tone, and 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.

           
Tribute to its 60s Diver Scuba
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 Tribute does meet this level through and through.

The pioneer of water-tight case in the early 30s, Mido gets the water-resistance up to a pressure of 20 bars (200 m/660 ft), an essential feature of any diver's watch, while most of us might most probably bring it to the beach for some sun-tanning with our children, or at the office behind our desk "diving" away.

Now let's move on to what's underneath the ultra-resistant box-shaped sapphire crystal. The block-shaped hour markers are painted nicely onto its azure blue dial, with hash markers in-between for a more precise reading., An orange seconds hand is spot-on here 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.

Caliber 80 based on the ETA C07.621
Finally, the multi-link mesh bracelet made of steel with the same impeccable finishing, give the Ocean Star Tribute the superb retro-look that was responsible for the success of the original models. The signed clasp features a diver extension that allows one to adjust with ease.

Up till now are the looks and vibes of what a 60s diver should be like, the movement shifts things to the modern side — the caliber 80 of MIDO based on the ETA C07.621 with a full 80-hour power reserve. The Caliber 80 is considered in-house as MIDO is part of the Swatch group family, and the modified ETA CO7.621 features a Nivachoc balance spring with its frequency reduced to 21,600 Hz for and an improved mainspring capacity. The caliber 80 inside the Ocean Star makes it so value-driven as it hoods one of the highest-quality movements today at an exceptional price point.

SuperLuminova for Superb Glow In Dark

The Ocean Star Tribute Blue comes with an additional strap- a matching blue technical fabric strap so that it can adapt to any occasion or desire.

The Ocean Star Tribute Blue M026.830.11.041.00 celebrates the 75th anniversary of their Ocean Star diver. With its strong vintage vibes that pays the appropriate tribute of their very own 1960s vibe, Mido Ocean Star Tribute Black are sized for both modern and nostalgic tastes while featuring historically accurate traits that watch enthusiasts seek today. What's more, the caliber 80 inside the robust diver feels more than enough to justify this Ocean Star for its value proposition.
