Mido Commander Icône – Reference M031.631.33.061.00

The Commander is a flagship watch line that has been produced by Mido without interruption since 1959. Its slender, round case in satin-finished steel endows the Commander collection with an inimitable and immediately recognisable silhouette, just like the Eiffel Tower.

Entirely coated in anthracite PVD, this new Commander Icône is a perfect contemporary expression of the original model. Its 42 mm satin-finished steel case is treated with anthracite PVD and enhanced with a faceted and polished bezel. And in a series of references to Mido’s visual identity, it reveals a stunning sunray satin-finished anthracite dial with orange highlights on the index and hands.

The maximum space given to the dial is another of the values inherited from the 1959 model. To guarantee perfect night-time readability, the indexes feature white Super-LumiNova®, as do the hour and minute hands. The second hand, varnished in orange, provides a subtle detail, while an aperture at 3 o’clock indicates the day and date. The satin-finished, stainless steel Milanese mesh bracelet with anthracite PVD treatment has been seamlessly integrated into the case, and is easily adjusted using the sliding clasp.

The Commander Icône is fitted with the Caliber 80 Si, a COSC-certified chronometer movement featuring a silicon balance-spring that ensures greater long-term accuracy than a standard balance-spring and improved resistance to magnetic fields and impacts. This latest-generation calibre also gives up to 80 hours of power reserve.

Decorated with blued screws and an oscillating weight adorned with Geneva stripes and the Mido logo, this chronometer movement can be admired through the transparent case back. The Commander Icône is water-resistant up to a pressure of 5 bars (50 m / 165 ft).

A fully stainless steel version, entirely coated in yellow gold PVD, is also available.
