OCEAN STAR DIVER 600
MYSTERIOUS BLACK STARFISH
With its robust all-black shell, capable of withstanding dives up to 600 m, the new divers’ watch from the Le Locle-based watchmaker, with chronometer and ISO 6425 certification, dominates the oceans beautifully.
2019 marks the 75th anniversary of a watch designed for the ocean’s depths: the Ocean Star. This piece created in the Mido studios stood out from 1944 by the single-shell architecture of its case which, together with the Aquadura system created in 1930 based on a cork-crown seal, guaranteed considerable water resistance at that time. Today, the star of the oceans produced by the watchmaker established in Le Locle has become an essential tool for sea-lovers. Certified in accordance with the demanding ISO 6425 standard for diving watches, the new Ocean Star Diver 600 model, a COSC-certified chronometer, withstands dives up to 600 m.
The 43.5 mm case is designed in black steel with a DLC coating. This color gives it a combative and stealth-like appearance. The unidirectional rotating bezel, with a black ceramic ring and a luminescent diving scale, completes this mysterious charm. The screw-in case back is adorned with a polished starfish in relief. Under this dark shell beats the Caliber 80, an automatic movement designed on an ETA base, which powers the time and date functions and offers an astounding power reserve of 80 hours.
On the black lacquered dial, the hours and minutes are indicated by two large hands highlighted with white Super-LumiNova® passing over a series of geometric index markers which are also phosphorescent. The seconds are marked by a bright orange lacquered second hand which energizes the piece. To finish, the date is displayed in white on a black background at 3 o’clock.
This new Mido watch comes with a rubber strap matching the case and fastens with a pin buckle.
Price: 1,590 CHF
