Write a review
Being one of Mido’s most iconic collections, Mido celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Ocean Star line with an outstanding new model that recollects subtle references from the past, incorporating a host of classic design aesthetics from 1960s dive watch models. The perfect blend of a retro style and impressive modern specifications makes the Mido Ocean Star Tribute Green Ref. M026.830.18.091.00 truly an all-rounder Swiss-made diver that checks all the right boxes.

The Swiss have been highly regarded as the pinnacle of the watch industry with a rich history of producing watches of the highest quality standards. At the top of the food chain for luxury mechanical watches, it comes as no surprise that haute horlogerie watches command astronomical prices. However, not every Swiss timepiece has to break the bank. In particular, historic Swiss watch manufacturer Mido prides themselves to produce exceptional Swiss-made watches at a surprisingly affordable price point.

Mido Ocean Star Tribute Green Ref. M026.830.18.091.00

For over more than 100 years, Mido has stood for watches that combined innovation, aesthetics and functionality since its beginnings. Founded by experienced watchmaker Georges Schaeren in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland back in 1918, the name “Mido” was derived from the Spanish phrase “Yo Mido”, meaning “I measure”. Today, Mido is based in the town of Le Locle, in the heart of the beautiful Swiss Jura Mountains. With the rise of scuba diving, Mido has invented numerous cutting-edge technological innovations such as the revolutionary single-shell case and their pioneering cork-crown “Aquadura” Crown Sealing system that became the foundation for their modern day dive watches.

As a sturdy diver, the Ocean Star Tribute Green Ref. M026.830.18.091.00 bears a solidly-built 316L stainless steel case construction, boasting superb durability and corrosion resistance that will stand the test of time. Naturally, dimensions play an essential role to find the right fit for the wrist of the modern gentleman. Mido hits the dimensions right out of the park with a case diameter of 40.5mm, a lug to lug distance of 51mm, a tasteful size that many will definitely enjoy. Together with its sleek case profile of 13.4mm, this is a proportionate piece that exhibits timeless elegance with just the right amount of wrist presence.


Tribute to its 60s Diver Scuba
The Ocean Star Tribute Green Ref. M026.830.18.091.00 presents a well executed finish all around with a glossy high polish throughout the entire case, exhibiting a lustrous shine that glamorously catches the light. For a secure fit on the wrist, the Ocean Star Tribute is tastefully paired with a premium 21mm green nylon fabric strap, complete with white contrasting stitching and embossed cow leather on the underside for utmost comfort on the wrist.

This time, the old-school approach Mido took on the bezel sure is attractive, a simple yet classy bezel that certainly pleases traditionalist watch lovers that yearn for a nice vintage charm. Housing a 120-click unidirectional rotating bezel, the dark khaki green aluminium insert features a sharply defined white diving scale with a prominent luminous pearl at the 12 o’clock position. The bezel action feels smooth like butter while clicking confidently in place.

Caliber 80 based on the ETA C07.621
Diving into the dial, the Ocean Star Tribute Green Ref. M026.830.18.091.00 sports a matte khaki green dial with a layout that looks extremely clean, accompanied with great proportions and a fitting day-date complication at the 3 o’clock position. The printed indexes and diamond-cut hands are treated generously with white Super-Luminova that glows like a torch in dark lighting conditions. To top it off, the striking orange lollipop second hand adds an appealing pop of color against its mostly-green aesthetic. 


Above that, the dial is protected with a piece of scratch-resistant “glass box” highly-domed sapphire crystal with double sided anti-reflective coating, creating a truly vintage appeal reminiscent of retro acrylic crystals used back in the day.

SuperLuminova for Superb Glow In Dark

At the core of the Ocean Star Tribute Green Ref. M026.830.18.091.00 lies the Mido Caliber 80 automatic movement, a modified 25 jewel ETA C07.621 day/date movement. The movement's main highlights include the boosted 80-hour power reserve achieved by lowering the 4 Hz beat rate of 28,800 beats per hour to 3 Hz (21,600 beats per hour). The lowered beat rate also translates to a more robust movement due to the lesser friction produced between the parts over time. With the screw-in case back and a screw down crown at the 3 o’clock position, this piece is equipped with a capable water resistance of 200m (660 ft), ready for some underwater adventures.

Mido has grown leaps and bounds over the past century, upholding their spirit of producing reliable Swiss timepieces while giving their watches a facelift to match the needs of the 21st century. The Ocean Star Tribute Green Ref. M026.830.18.091.00 exhibits outstanding price-performance ratio with a retro design and an attractive highly-domed sapphire crystal. Overall, the right mix of great proportions, a dependable Swiss automatic movement and Mido’s watchmaking expertise of over 100 years has proven to be a compelling formula for a watch worthy to be named a diving masterpiece.
