This Ocean Star is a typical seventies watch, with a silver sunray dial, faceted and short hour markers. An applied Mido logo enhances the dial. All in a polished gold case, and luckily the watch comes with its original gold mesh band and Mido clasp.
MIDO OCEAN STAR POWERWIND
Mido mechanical hand-winding - Circa 1970
The Mido Ocean Star appeared at the end of the 1950s, as a result of the desire of Mido and one of its suppliers, Taubert & Fils, to be ahead in the race of watertightness. With a watertight and one-piece case (the movement is entered from the front, but the case back is immutable) that can guarantee static watertightness to 300m (for the diving model), the piece also benefits from another advantage: a cork gasket.
