Mido’s new Commander Gradient watch features a stainless steel case and a transparent, gradient dial that offers the view of self-winding movement beating inside.
The instantly recognisable lines of the Mido Commander collection pay tribute to the inimitable silhouette of the Eiffel Tower. With a satin-finished case highlighted by a slender bezel, its round shape echoes the arches of the monument, while the rectangular indexes and hands complete with polished metal bars, recall the tower’s iron lattice.
Classic know-how takes on an ultra-contemporary look with the transparent dial of the Commander Gradient, which immerses the eye in watchmaking mechanics. Adorned with an original gradient smoky effect, the dial becomes increasingly opaque around the edges while the date at 3 o’clock stands out perfectly against the aperture’s white background.
The polished hour indexes and the diamond-cut hour and minute hands are clearly visible, even at night, thanks to their white Super-LumiNova® coating.
The seconds hand is coated in the same white and instantly stands out against the smoky background of the dial. A faceted and domed sapphire crystal further enhances the readability of the display.
The Commander Gradient in steel comes with a polished bezel, 40 mm satin-finished case and satin-finished metal strap with folding clasp. With a screwed case back, the Commander Gradient offers water-resistance of up to 5 bar (50 m/165 ft).
While the mechanism can be seen from the front, it can also be admired through the transparent case back. Geneva stripes decorate the Caliber 80’s oscillating weight. Once fully wound, this movement offers a power reserve of up to 80 hours.
