Lighthouse In The Water: Mido’s New Ocean Star Diving Watch

The Strait of Gibraltar is the main channel of communication between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean, and it is also an important strait that separates Spain from North Africa and Morocco. Due to the large number of ships passing by, the lighthouse was guided, making the European lighthouse (Europa Point) at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula a famous landmark. And we all know that Mido has always loved to draw inspiration from architecture-yes, this year’s new Ocean Star series of watches is exactly using this lighthouse as an indicator.

Taking inspiration from famous buildings has always been Mido’s expertise. This year’s new Ocean Star series watches incorporate the Europa Point of the Buruo Strait into the details of the faceplate.

   The history of the Ocean Star series can be traced back to 1944, that is, 72 years ago. The original name of Ocean Star was to emphasize its waterproof performance. After changing between 1960, 1990, 2005, 2010 and other years, finally, This year it debuted again with a brand new look. Inspired by Europa Point, the new Ocean Star series watches incorporate the red and white design of the lighthouse into the hands and hour markers at 12 and 6 o’clock.

Ocean Star Captain Caliber 80 titanium (left) / stainless steel (right) case, aluminum unidirectional rotating bezel, diameter 42.5 mm, hours, minutes, seconds, date, day of the week, luminous hands in time Standard, Mido Caliber 80 self-winding movement, 80-hour power reserve, sapphire crystal glass, special engraved case back, waterproof 200 meters, titanium / stainless steel chain.

   Although there is no ultra-strong waterproof performance up to 1000 meters, but because ordinary people will not really wear a watch to dive to such an unreachable depth, the 200 meters water resistance of a watch is actually quite enough. The new Ocean Star has also taken a more elegant route in appearance design. Of course, there is no problem with casual clothing. It is not strange to wear a suit.

The watch uses titanium as the case, which is extremely light and holds almost no weight in the hand.

   In addition to the stainless steel version of the new Ocean Star, Mido also uses an extremely lightweight titanium material as the case. It has almost no weight in the hand and is comfortable to wear. What’s more, the titanium dial is sandblasted to show a grainy texture, which is different from the normal smooth dial.

The sandblasted dial creates a unique grainy texture that is different from ordinary surfaces.

   Also made of stainless steel, Mido also launched a rose gold PVD model to enhance the elegance of the watch; with a rubber strap, the whole watch looks more like it is going to wear it out of the outdoors. Although the summer is coming to an end, the sultry weather seems to last for a while, so if you really want to wear it to the beach to ventilate, there should be plenty of time to do so.

Ocean Star Captain Caliber 80 PVD stainless steel case with rose gold, unidirectional rotating bezel, 42.5 mm diameter, hour, minute, second, date, day of the week, luminous hands and time markers, Mido Caliber 80 automatic winding Movement, 80-hour power reserve, sapphire crystal glass surface, special engraved case back, waterproof 200 meters, rubber strap.

   If you flip the watch over the case back, you will find a huge starfish embossed on it. Of course, it is not a big star in SpongeBob, nor is it a gem starfish in the Pokémon illustrated book; in fact, the starfish pattern on the Ocean Star bottom cover is derived from the exclusive logo when Mido first launched the Ocean Star watch in 1944. This is why the brand chose to present it on the case back, instead of revealing the Caliber 80 movement with a transparent caseback.

The new Ocean Star watch has an embossed starfish pattern on the case back, which is the exclusive logo of Mido when it first launched the Ocean Star series in 1944.

   Speaking of Caliber 80, this movement has been quite mature since its inception and has been well received. It has an absolute power reserve of 80 hours. After all, a good part of the movement has only 48 to 72 hours of energy storage. By comparison, a power reserve of more than 3 is indeed more practical. And just like Mido’s price for a long time, the new Ocean Star watch is also launched at a very affordable number; under the condition of both appearance texture and movement performance, I believe it will not let Mido watch fans down.
