To mark the resumption of the championships, Swiss watch brand Mido is presenting the Ocean Star 200 Red Bull Cliff Diving Limited Edition and reinforcing the shared vision and exceptional values that tie it to the sport: aesthetics, performance and precision.
This unique model, which offers formidable water-resistance of up to 20 bar (200 m/660 ft), also features a superior power reserve of up to 80 hours thanks to the Caliber 80, which is protected by a screwed case back engraved with the Red Bull Cliff Diving logo.
Its blue vertical-brushed dial recalls the colours of the ocean depths, while touches of orange – Mido’s signature shade – add energy to its streamlined sporty look. This watch is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces.
Mido and Red Bull Cliff Diving formed a partnership in 2019 underpinned by extreme precision, performance and aesthetics. For over a century, Mido watches have coupled the best technology with timeless lines.
The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, meanwhile, brings together the very best freediving competitors. Leaping from heights of up to 27 m, these exceptional athletes execute masterful movements while confronting gravity head-on.
The new Ocean Star 200 Red Bull Cliff Diving Limited Edition is a watch of champions and a companion of all sporting feats. Its blue dial – with brushed vertical finishes seemingly showing the downwards trajectory – is crossed by an orange seconds hand. This bright shade also brings out the ‘Caliber 80’ inscription and the stitching of the blue synthetic textile strap, which is particularly resistant.
White Super-LumiNova® adorns the polished indexes, the hands and the dot at 12 o’clock on the bezel, ensuring optimum visibility in the darkest depths. Silver-coloured indications stand out against the blue aluminium of the unidirectional rotating bezel. Meanwhile, the day and date appear in an aperture at 3 o’clock. For optimum readability at all times, the sapphire crystal has an anti-reflective treatment on both sides.
The stainless steel case of the Ocean Star 200 Red Bull Cliff Diving Limited Edition brilliantly alternates shiny and satin-finished surfaces. Crafted specifically for diving, the watch offers proven resistance of up to 20 bar (200 m/660 ft), thanks in particular to its screwed crown and case back.
The Caliber 80 offers exceptional autonomy, with up to 80 hours of power reserve. This limited and numbered edition of 500 timepieces comes in a special Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series case.
