MIDO Commander Lady – Mother-of-Pearl & Sunray Satinated

The Commander family, an iconic Mido collection since 1959, is being enriched by the arrival of two new models for women: the Commander Lady Sunray Satinated, with its rose PVD-treated steel case containing a silver sunray satinated dial, and the Commander Lady Mother-of-Pearl with its iridescent white mother-of-pearl dial.

The Commander has been manufactured continuously by Mido since 1959 and its longevity speaks volumes about its success. A genuine icon of Swiss watchmaking tradition and know-how, the Commander has preserved the distinctive DNA that has brought it such glory for over half a century.

These two new MIDO Commander Lady models feature rose PVD-treated case. The voluptuous curves of their satinated steel cases, combined with the extreme finesse of the faceted hour-markers – ingeniously reminiscent of the Eiffel tower’s graceful lines – endow these two models with an elegance that is both sleek and contemporary.

With a diameter of 33 mm, the Commander Lady Sunray Satinated and Mother-of-Pearl feature an elaborate automatic movement, while a faceted domed sapphire crystal protects the dial.

Both timepieces are water-resistant up to a pressure of 5 bar (50 m/165 ft). The hour and minute hands, together with the indexes, are treated with white Super-LumiNova® for enhanced readability at night. Both models also come with a strap in black semi-lacquered leather.

An all-steel version of the MIDO Commander Lady Sunray Satinated model is also available, as well as a two-tone model with a rose PVD-treated steel case and bracelet.

A model treated entirely in yellow-gold PVD (case, dial and bracelet) was also created in homage to the original 1959 Commander.
