Mido's Thin Watch for Men and Women - Shopcart Favorites
The goal of making ultra thin watch has been pursued for decades, but the effort has accelerated in recent years. Mido Watches has a century of experience in dexterity and prowess in making many, if not all, of their Swiss-made watches. Even today, all of their timepieces reveal those vital characteristics without merely throwing out their brand name without many credentials. Since 1925, skilled watchmakers have produced everything from artisanal enameled thin timepieces to the auction-worthy Bughatti "egg-shaped grill" watches.
Here are Mido's thin watch collection for you who love simplicity.
Mido Baroncelli Big Date White - Bracelet Ref. M027.426.11.018.00
The design components of the Mido Baroncelli Big Date on bracelet Ref. M027.426.11.018.00 were inspired by the architecture of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Italy, which opened in 1877 and has since become a landmark and one of the world's oldest shopping malls. The Baroncelli Heritage exhibits the elegance and majesty of the VItorrio Emanuele's 19th-century building.
Let's have a look at the specifications of this Mido, which comes in a full polished stainless steel case that measures 40mm broad and 45mm from lugs to lugs, making it a perfect fit and proportion for even the slenderest gentleman's wrist. The best feature of the Baroncelli Big Date is its thickness. With a height of 10.32mm, it's sleek and elegant enough for anyone to wear to corporate meetings and dinner dates at their favorite restaurants. From the top, the case is elegant; for a brief moment, the triple stepped thin bezel creates a sense of depth and an old-school dress thin watch appearance. And the somewhat thicker lugs give the Baroncelli Heritage a solid feel, as well as a lot of adaptability. All of these small elements add a lot to the wearer's wrist presence and experience for such a thin watch.
When one looks beneath the flat sapphire crystal of the Baroncelli, one has the same experience. The hands of this thin watch are faceted with multi-finishes, sandblasted on one side and diamond-cut and polished on the other, and the dial has a warm off-white fine-grained finish. Topping it off, at minute intervals, thin stick markers with thin stick markers and small matching dots. The "Mido, Automatic" emblem is applied to the dial in its signature "Baroncelli" letters, and the beauty is completed with a contrasting blue seconds hand. The dial is only tastefully disturbed at 6 o'clock with a large date display.
For many, this difficulty may appear to be the usual, but enthusiasts like us find it interesting. Two date disks are necessary to accommodate the two rose gold frames in order to produce the huge date complication, allowing one to appreciate its legibility with the whimsical effect when both discs leap to display the right date. Because there are only a few elements to play with when constructing a dress watch, Mido nails the date window on the dial perfectly without throwing off the balance.
The mechanism ticking inside is sophisticatedly modern, even if the dial has that 19th-century appeal. The automatic Mido caliber 80.651 based on the ETA C07.651 movement inside is the key to its slimness. Mido's 80-hour power reserve ETA movement is known as the 25-jewel automatic large-date Caliber 80.651. Its frequency has been lowered to 21,600 Hz in order to enhance mainspring capacity. The Commander's caliber 80 is so value-driven because it houses one of the highest-quality movements available today at such a low price. The best thing is that one can view it via the Commander Big Date's see-through case back.
Finally, the 20mm 5-links style dress bracelet is finished in full polish to complement the case's elegance and features a seamless design push deployant buckle. Mido Baroncelli's Big Date on Bracelet (Ref. M027.426.11.018.00) is a perfect match for their history and performance standards.
Mido Commander 1959 Datoday Silver Ref. M8429.4.C1.11
The Commander 1959 watch pays homage to one of Mido's most recognizable models, the Ocean Star Commander Datoday from the 1970s. Its neo-vintage design incorporates many of the design elements that have contributed to the Commander's success since 1959, including incredibly clean lines, ample space for the magnificent sunray satin-finished dial, and a Milanese mesh band.
Let's take a look at the Mido's dimensions, which harken back to a more "traditional" age. A flawlessly round stainless steel casing measuring 37mm in width and 10.45mm in height is available. It's lightweight, legible, informal, and elegant in a classic way. Even for the small wrists group, the lugs that hold the bracelets are concealed underneath the case, resulting in nearly perfect fitting and proportion. The main feature of the Commander Big Date is its thickness. With a height of 10.45mm, this thin watch is slim and elegant enough for anyone to wear to corporate meetings and dinner dates at their favorite restaurants. From the top, the case is sophisticated; for a brief while, the narrow bezel creates more dial and an old-school dress watch appearance.
Furthermore, the bezel is flush with the mid-case, resulting in a monocoque design that echoes the simple elegance of the past while being strong and versatile. All of these small elements add a lot to the wearer's wrist presence and experience. With the exception of the crown, the case has a completely polished finish on its case band and is topped off by the bezel, which is the single point of entrance.
When one looks underneath the Commander 1959's exaggerated slight domed hesalite crystal, one gets the same feeling. It's an all-dial display with silver applied hour markers that have multi-facets and glowing at their tips. When viewed from the side, the grey sunray dial, flanged by the sloped minute rehaut, appears to exude a sense of depth. The grey dial is only beautifully disturbed by a day/date indicator at 3 o'clock, preserving it as a practical everyday wear. The handset is also designed to look like the hour markers, with matching facets and a brilliant finish. The applied Mido logo at the top, printed “Automatic datoday” on the 9 o'clock side, and applied “Chronometer” and written “officially certified” at the bottom of the dial define the neo-vintage motif of their 1970s Commander, keeping things well-balanced.
The mechanism ticking inside is sophisticatedly modern, even if the dial has that 18th-century beauty. The automated COSC automatic caliber ETA 2836-2, a Swiss movement, is the secret to its slimness. With the classic styling from the 1950s and 1970s, the movement feels completely at home. As it is certified by the COSC, Switzerland's official Chronometer certification office, it assures the wearer of precise accuracy. The ETA 2836-2 movement inside the Commander adds to its value by hooding one of the most well-known movements available today at a great price. The best thing is that one can view it via the Commander's see-through case back.
Finally, the 20mm Milanese mesh bracelet, which moves in sync with the wrist, completes the look. Its characteristic mesh structure was created in Milan in the nineteenth century. For the wearer, this material evokes classic Italian elegance and a timeless look. Furthermore, this thin watch offers great breathability as well as a retro style that is much sought after.
Everything on the Mido Commander 1959 Datoday Silver Ref. M8429.4.C1.11 has been meticulously put together, both in terms of design and execution, resulting in one of the most elegant thin watch in the collection.
Mido Rainflower Blue Ladies Ref. M043.207.16.131.00
Mido presented the Rainflower series, which carries on the spirit of Singapore's ArtScience Museum. The collection features a totally committed and sophisticated architectural version of the Lion City's famed museum, which is inspired by the exquisite and bowl-shaped aesthetic of a floating lotus flower. Today, we're looking at the Mido Rainflower Ladies Blue Ref. M043.207.16.131.00, which was released in and reflects Mido's architectural design and sustainability to withstand the test of time.
Let's take a look at the specifications of this Mido, which come in a high-grade stainless steel case that measures 34mm broad and 40mm from lugs to lugs, making it a perfect fit and proportion for even the tiniest lady's wrist. The nicest feature of the Rainflower Ladies' nails is their thickness. With a height of 9.76mm, it's ultra-thin and elegant enough for anyone to wear to corporate meetings and dinner dates at their favorite restaurants.
Starting at the top, the case of this thin watch is elegant, with narrow bezel grooves that represent the "ten fingertips" of the Art Science Museum, which were built to allow skylights to illuminate through each "finger" signifying separate galleries spaced for sustainable illumination, while the Rainflower Ladies give it a designer-type appearance. When we look at the Rainflower Ladies in profile, the grooves continue to the side profile of the mid-case, the architecture vibes improve. The entire timepiece comes to life and adorns the museum in its purest form. The short but not stubby lugs coupled to the "designer" case will transform the lotus flower shape into a timepiece, allowing it to feel solid with plenty of versatility. All of these small elements add a lot to the wearer's wrist presence and experience. The architectural essence of the museum can also be found on its crown, which is done in an appropriate size, of course.
Mido's caliber 80.611 is based on the ETA C07.611 and was designed by Mido. When one looks beneath the flat sapphire crystal of the Rainflower Ladies, one gets the same feeling. The beautiful mother-of-pearl dial has a sky-blue hue design that resembles the petals of a lotus flower, with each part done in slightly distinct hues of blue, which is highlighted by the MOP material's one-of-a-kind nature. At the 12, 3, and 9 o'clock positions, small diamonds and thin metal strips are attached, and the watch is finished with a skeletonized leaf-shaped handset. To cap it off, the "Mido, Automatic" emblem was put to the dial to complete the look. Because there are only a few elements to play with when constructing a dress watch, Mido nails the date window on the dial perfectly without throwing off the balance.
The movement ticking inside is the dial's sustainability element, if it has that Art Science Museum charm. The automatic Mido's caliber 80.611 based on the ETA C07.611 movement inside is the secret to its slimness. The Mido proprietary name for their 80-hour power reserve ETA movement is the 25-jewel automatic Caliber 80.611. Its frequency has been lowered to 21,600 Hz in order to enhance mainspring capacity. The Rainflower Ladies' caliber 80 is so value-driven because it houses one of the highest-quality movements available today at such a low price. The best aspect is that the flowery motives on the winding-rotor can be viewed through the see-through case back.
Finally, a 15mm dark blue leather strap with an alligator pattern and a matching signature deployant buckle completes the stunning thin watch look.
