Ocean Star Red Bull Cliff Diving - Ltd Ed 500pcs Ref. M026.430.17.041.00

1 Review
With Red Bull’s astronomical involvement in the world of extreme sports, Swiss watch manufacturer Mido embraced their like-minded performance-driven ideology to drop their latest limited edition model of their flagship Ocean Star diver in collaboration with the world-renowned energy drink manufacturer. After a year-long halt in Red Bull’s championships in 2020, the resumption in 2021 came with a bang, seeing phenomenal divers like Rhiannan Iffland, Catalin Preda and Alessandro De Rose perform a range of incredible cliff diving jumps. Sharing the same values of aesthetics, performance and precision, Mido participated in the championship as an ‘Official Performance Partner’, giving birth to this remarkable limited-edition release that certainly looks like a true champion.

Mido Ocean Star Red Bull Cliff Diving - Ltd Ed 500pcs Ref. M026.430.17.041.00

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.

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.


Tribute to its 60s Diver Scuba
The Mido Ocean Star is a collection of robust diving watches intended to serve as a reliable companion to those who want to conquer the ocean. While many of us would probably rock a dive watch for “desk diving” at the office instead of the ocean, Mido launched their latest iteration of the Ocean Star that combines functionality and an exceptionally appealing modern design inspired by architecture, looking as captivating on land as it would underwater.

As a sturdy diver, the Mido Ocean Star Red Bull Cliff Diving Ref. M026.430.17.041.00 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 42.5mm, a lug to lug distance of 48.5mm, a tasteful size that many will definitely enjoy. Together with its sleek case profile of 11.6mm, this is a proportionate piece that exhibits timeless elegance with just the right amount of wrist presence.

Caliber 80 based on the ETA C07.621

The Mido Ocean Star Red Bull Cliff Diving Ref. M026.430.17.041.00 has a well executed finish all around with immaculate satin brushing on the top of the lugs, as well as on the side of the case. Finishing is rather simple, however it is done to the highest possible standards with attention to the finer details. A cleanly polished bevelled edge on the lugs completes the case with a smooth and refined appearance. The mix of brushed and polished surfaces is coherently carried down to the 22mm blue fabric strap with vibrant orange stitching to match the dial’s orange accents.

Following the attractive blue color scheme of the watch, the unidirectional rotating bezel sports a deep blue aluminum insert with contrasting silver-colored 60-minute scale and a luminous pip at the 12 o'clock position, bringing a sporty and athletic look to the piece.

SuperLuminova for Superb Glow In Dark

Diving into the dial, the Ocean Star Red Bull Cliff Diving Ref. M026.430.17.041.00 demonstrates artisanal craftsmanship with a vertically brushed pattern, adding another layer of dimension to the oceanic blue dial. Mido’s signature shade of orange on the second hand and dial gives the dial a splash of colour for an extra touch of lively character. The applied indices and hands are treated generously with white Super-Luminova that glows like a torch in dark lighting conditions. Above that, the dial is protected with a piece of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with double sided anti-reflective coating, keeping the dial crystal clear for your enjoyment.

At the core of the Ocean Star Red Bull Cliff Diving Ref. M026.430.17.041.00 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.

Caseback engraved with Red Bull’s logo

Limited to only 500 pieces, each screw-in caseback is engraved with a unique design of Red Bull’s logo, as well as an individual serial number to signify its exclusivity. Paired with 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.

Red Bull’s annual cliff diving international championships bring so much to love from the exciting diving performances to the breathtaking views of beautiful cliff diving spots. Mido’s participation in the event truly drops another reason to appreciate the sensational occasion with the release of the Mido Ocean Star Red Bull Cliff Diving Ref. M026.430.17.041.00. Perfectly embodying the shared vision of Red Bull and Mido, this magnificent collaborative timepiece is a real winner.
