In 1959, Mido first designed what was destined to become one of the most appreciated of all classical watches, the Commander, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. In tribute to this model, which remains true to its elegant and original allure, Mido presents a gold edition in a limited series of 50 pieces.
The design of the Commander has remained unchanged since the nineteen-fifties. It is a perfect embodiment of the unfettered elegance and incredible modernity of that period. The Commander has a special allure which is immediately recognizable by the purity of its lines and the big dial opening.
The Gold Edition is a limited series launched to celebrate the jubilee, and the dial of each piece will be numbered from 1/50 to 50/50. Supplied in a special watch box, fitted with a brown leather strap and a silver dial brushed from the centre in a sunray pattern which enhances the warm color of the gold, the Commander Limited Edition also has all of those features which have delighted connoisseurs for half a century.
Its monobloc case is made of a single piece and has no removable case back. Its crown is protected by the cork crown sealing of the unique Aquadura system, and its domed glass is made of hesalite. The Gold Edition incorporates an automatic COSC certified chronometer movement for absolute precision at all times.
The jubilee Commander will also be offered in a steel version with a steel Milanese bracelet, limited to 500 pieces.
