Mido celebrates the rich history of Mexico in the new limited edition of the Commander Big Date “Homenaje.” In a round case with a diameter of 42mm made of stainless steel, the polished bezel and the satin-finished case sides and lugs provide a large canvas-like opening to a unique dial inspired by the artistic technique of the indigenous Huichol people.
The famous floral skull is crafted as a relief on a black background, paying tribute to Mexico’s most famous cultural festival: Día de Muertos (or the Day of the Dead), a two day holiday taking place on November 1 and 2 that reunites the living and dead. With 27 different lacquers, the stunning motif offers a colorful and cheerful face during the day, while the skull glows at night thanks to seven different Superluminova shades. As dubbed in the name, the watch also features a large date indication.
The transparent case back provides a glimpse into the workings of the mechanical heart of this special Commander Big Date. The caliber 80 boasts a antimagnetic Nivachron hairspring and up to 80 hours of power reserve.
This limited edition of 677 pieces, with the limitation paying tribute to the birthdate of the legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, comes with a stainless steel bracelet and a leather strap. Pricing is marked at approximately 1,580 when converted to USD.
