Ocean Star Tribute Gradient Red Ref. M026.830.17.421.00

Write a review

Ever since its inception, the name MIDO - from Spanish «Yo mido» (i.e. «I measure») - became synonymous with quality innovation and evergreen designs. Seventy-five years after launching its inaugural Ocean Star, MIDO unveiled a special-edition series, in a nod to this epochal collection famed for reliable water-resistance since the 1940s.

With each single piece from this collection designed with a contemporary vibe, Mido injected further zest to its watchmaking heritage in the form of the Ocean Star M026.830.17.421.00.

Mido Ocean Star Tribute Gradient Red Ref. M026.830.17.421.00

The Ocean Star Tribute is aligned to present-day tastes with a 40.5mm diameter case and thickness  of 13.4mm. The timepiece boasts a veracious and solid design, typical of dive watches since the 60s’ prevalence of recreational diving. Furthermore, this watch has a lug width of 21.0mm with Ocean Star’s trademark straight lugs mid-case design and a dose of high polish on all sides to allude to the  look of the 60s tool-watch of the 60s look. To boot, the watch’s top-notch finish makes this piece an absolute luxury knockout.

The bezel features a classic black tone and rotates at 60 clicks crisply in an anti-clockwise direction to ensure the wearer’s safety while underwater. The block-shaped hour markers assume a presence of their own on the unique smokey red dial, with hash markers in-between for a more precise reading. The Superluminova® indexes and hands serve a legible glow-in-the-dark function when the wearer decides to go underwater.

    
Tribute to its 60s Diver Scuba
Furthermore, MIDO only uses architectural-grade 316L stainless steel for its steel components to facilitate compatibility with all skin types. Stainless steel resists corrosion and showcases outstanding durability. Hence, with MIDO’s long-lasting stainless steel watches complemented with energizing aesthetics, the wearer can even preserve this timepiece as a legacy for the next generation.

Additionally, this Ocean Star Tribute Red comes with a quirky dial that befits the heydays where funky and bright dials were the Swiss watchmaking doings. The smokey red dial graduates to a darker red towards the periphery, resulting in a mesmerising burnt effect thats quite attractive to the wearer. The watch’s shock-resistant sapphire crystal glass throws its striking dials in sharp relief. This transparent glass material enables quality readability in all situations and enhances the watch’s elegant design.

Caliber 80 based on the ETA C07.621
A forerunner in water-tight cases in the early 30s, this Mido work of art lives up to its name as a diver’s watch and boasts a water-resistance of up to a pressure of 20 bars (200 m/660 ft). That being said, the wearer has the flexibility of wearing it simply to the lakeside to relax or to the workplace while “diving” in work. The in-house caliber 80 of this timepiece is based on the ETA C07.621 with a full 80-hour power reserve, combining top quality movements with an affordable price. Indeed, the sterling features of this robust diver certainly positions this watch as a strong value proposition to Mido’s dive watch collection.

Pairing the dive watch is a black perforated rubber strap with a nice signed “Mido” tang buckle. The retro pattern on the strap accompanies beautifully with the vintage theme of the watch, while allowing the wearer to go about any wet activities without hassle.

SuperLuminova for Superb Glow In Dark

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 Mido Ocean Star Tribute Gradient Red Ref. M026.830.17.421.00 exhibits outstanding price-performance ratio with a retro design and an attractive smokey red dial. 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.
