Riding the wave of vintage style
With its 1960s-inspired look, the Ocean Star Tribute is causing a sensation with a magnificent new khaki colour. The collection pays homage to the marine world and to Mido’s water-resistance expertise, which has been renowned since the 1930s and earned the brand its ‘King of Waterproof’ nickname all those years ago. Its ‘glassbox’ style of sapphire crystal is a nod to the Mido watches from the 1960s, while the best of modern technology further enhances its performance. Super-LumiNova® ensures readability, its rotating bezel features a khaki aluminium ring, the movement is powered by the formidable Caliber 80, and the watch is water-resistant to 20 bar (200 m/660 ft). With this timepiece, lovers of diving watches can endlessly ride the vintage wave.
Architecture that withstands winds and tides
At Europe’s southernmost tip stands the Europa Point Lighthouse, an architectural construction built to withstand any storm, that has watched over the Gibraltar Strait unfailingly since 1841. Its powerful beam of light helps sailors to find their bearings on the often-rough waters between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Created by Mido in 1944, the Ocean Star collection is characterised by its reliability, just like this monument, built to safely guide men as they embark on new maritime conquests.
