Mido Pays Tribute To A Classic With Its New Commander Timepiece


Back in 1959, Mido released the inaugural Commander timepiece. This year, the legendary manufacturer is paying homage to that very same — and now iconic — collection. The new Commander Shade boasts a circular, sandblasted steel monocoque case with a subtle, black PVD treatment, as well as refined, pure lines that open up the dial for optimum viewing.

With this brand new iteration, the Swiss brand is again proving that it has what it takes to craft iconic, contemporary watches, even after being a constant producer of quality for over half a century now.

The Commander Blue Shade is equipped with industry-leading technology, such as the Caliber 80 automatic movement, which stores up to 80 hours of power reserve. The caseback features the original logo and is water-resistant up to a pressure of 5 bar (50 m /165 ft). The timepiece offers exceptional comfort, thanks to a Milanese mesh bracelet in satin-finished steel, with a black PVD finish and sliding clasp that’s almost like a second skin. This affords a high level of comfort, while also emphasizing its vintage style, which remains as relevant as ever, today.

Two other versions of the Commander Shade are being released: one in steel with a gradated black and silver dial, the other in pink-gold PVD with a gradated taupe and silver dial. You can find more information on Mido’s striking timepiece here.
