The Ocean Star 36.5 exudes style! This piece stands out thanks to its magnificent contrasts. A deep, intense black adorns the dial, the rubber strap and the unidirectional rotating bezel with an ultra-resistant mineral crystal ring. The case and hands catch the eye with their rose gold colour, while precious diamonds punctuate the indexes. The cutting-edge Ocean 36.5 remains completely reliable up to a pressure of 20 bar (200 m/660 ft). Its formidable performance is the result of Mido‘s historical expertise in water resistance – the brand presented the innovative Aquadura system back in 1930 – which is celebrated by the starfish engraved on the screw-on case back. Its heart beats to the rhythm of the Calibre 80, a Swiss mechanical movement with an exceptional power reserve.

A radiant explorer with soft curves

The new Ocean Star 36.5 combines diver’s watch codes with a refined look. The unidirectional rotating bezel, fitted with a domed black mineral crystal ring with rose gold-coloured markings, can be used to measure elapsed time during a dive. The finely sunray-finished and black dial reflects the light at great depths while 11 diamonds surrounded by metal mark the hours. The flat diamond-cut rose gold-coloured hour, minute and seconds hands skim across this deep backdrop. They are subtly finished with powerful white Super-LumiNova® to ensure they remain readable even in the dark. At 6 o’clock also appears the date, to avoid losing track of time, a flawless timepiece!

Perfected performance

The Mido Ocean Star 36.5 takes its name from the unique 36.5 mm diameter of its case, which is made from extremely durable polished, rose gold-coloured stainless steel. It is protected by a glassbox-style sapphire crystal that recalls the charming plexiglas used in the sixties. A screw-down crown and case back add to the piece’s extraordinary water resistance up to a pressure of 20 bar. The Ocean Star 36.5 defies time thanks to the Calibre 80, an exceptional Swiss automatic movement with a power reserve of up to 80 hours. Its Nivachron™ balance spring improves its superior reliability under any conditions. It also features a textured rubber strap with a delicate wave pattern that moulds to the wrist like a second skin.

The collection is rounded off by two steel models without diamonds that combine elegance and performance: one features the same deep black dial and rotating bezel, and a navy blue version is available for fans of the original colour of the Mido Ocean Star collection. Designed to fit any wrist, the different versions of this model represent a real break with tradition.
