Swiss watch brand Mido presents Ocean Star Caliber 80 Titanium, a sporty, robust and lightweight timepiece designed for underwater explorers.
Created in 1944, the Ocean Star collection takes its inspiration from the rock solid Europa Point lighthouse which directs sailors approaching the shores of the Iberian Peninsula through Gibraltar Strait. Like this robust monument, the new Ocean Star Caliber 80 Titanium is designed for withstand the extreme conditions of the sea.
Proudly sporting the Mido colours, it is fitted with a polished and satin-finished titanium case. Featuring a folding clasp also made from titanium and a diving extension, the orange rubber strap of the Ocean Star Caliber 80 Titanium makes it an extremely lightweight model that is particularly comfortable to wear. Combined with remarkable water-resistance up to a pressure of 20 bars (200 m/660 ft), these characteristics are sure to appeal to all diving enthusiasts.
For maximum safety, the grained anthracite dial is equipped with a unidirectional rotating bezel that features a sandblasted anthracite aluminium ring used to measure diving time. This ring also features a white Super-LumiNova® dot at 12 o’clock. Generous touches of white Super-LumiNova® also adorn the indexes and hour and minute hands to guarantee perfect readability, both underwater and at night. The tip of the seconds hand, meanwhile, is adorned with orange Super-LumiNova®.
Measuring 42.5 mm in diameter, the robust case of the Ocean Star Caliber 80 Titanium houses the Caliber 80, a latest-generation automatic movement that ensures exceptional autonomy, with up to 80 hours of power reserve. Its dial is protected by a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective treatment on both sides. It features an aperture indicating the day and date at 3 o’clock. Several touches of orange on the dial, bezel and tip of the seconds hand, together with the orange strap, recall the Mido identity and highlight the sporty style of the Ocean Star Caliber 80 Titanium. The case back is adorned with a starfish, the symbol of the Ocean Star collection.
