Mido— a brand well versed in the art of displaying the beautiful inner workings of a Swiss mechanical movement— is now adding a new execution to its Commander Collection. As its name suggests, the latest Commander Gradient is equipped with a dial that features a color gradient, a quality that is very much en vogue in the realms of watchmaking these days.
While playing with a contemporary trend, this new iteration by Mido goes a step further than the style alone, as it is the acrylic glass that expresses the gradient look in very cool denim blue. It allows an unobstructed view onto the dial side of the movement, including the date ring that is on full display.
At the heart of the watch first introduced in 1959 ticks a powerful modern self-winding caliber with a power reserve of 80 hours, the Mido 80, based on ETA C07.611, in elaboré quality. It displays fine decorations and finishing trough the exhibition case back of the 40mm stainless steel case.
The Mido Commander Gradient is attached to a metal bracelet and has a price tag of $920.
