For adventurers who dream of crossing the seas, Mido is enriching its Ocean Star GMT collection with a new version equipped with the highly practical GMT function displayed with orange accents. It clearly displays the time in two different time zones: home time and local time. Featuring velvety black on the dial and shiny blue ceramic on the rotating bezel, the Ocean Star GMT presents bold contrasts. On the back of the timepiece – fitted with the Calibre 80, which offers a breathtaking power reserve of up to 80 hours – Mido has engraved the time-zone indications. The extremely easy-to-use GMT function offers twice as much freedom for those who are either by the ocean or on an adrenalin-fuelled adventure.
Come hell or high water
At Europe’s most southern point stands an architectural construction, built to withstand any storm, that has unfailingly watched over the Gibraltar Strait since 1841: the Europa Point Lighthouse. Its powerful beam of light helps sailors to find their bearings on the often rough waters between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Created by Mido in 1944, the Ocean Star collection is characterised by its reliability, just like this monument, which was built to safely guide men as they embark on new maritime conquests.
Two time zones at a glance
The Ocean Star GMT proves both effective and practical thanks to its perfect legibility. To make it easier to read, Mido has differentiated the hands according to their function. In addition to the hour, minute and seconds hands, an additional orange varnished 24-hour hand indicates the time in a second time zone by pointing to the hour-circle (24-hour format) on the flange of the dial. Its intuitive display places the daytime hours against a black background. White Super-LumiNova® on each of the hands and indexes allows the wearer to keep track of time, even in the dark abyss of the water’s depths. An aperture indicates the date at 3 o’clock.
Resistance and reliability
The Mido Ocean Star GMT’s unidirectional rotating bezel in black ceramic also allows the wearer to track elapsed time – whether it’s the time before the next expedition, or the time spent underwater. The fluting on the bezel makes it easier to operate, while the extremely hard ceramic is incredibly resistant to scratches and wear.
The case is fashioned from robust stainless steel and presents subtly contrasting polished and satin-finished surfaces. The screwed case back and crown further enhance the Mido Ocean Star GMT’s resistance to the elements. Water-resistant up to 20 bar and incorporating a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, this sporty model is the perfect ally for nautical exploration.
Legible, efficient and practical in all circumstances, the Ocean Star GMT opens up a world of voyages and nautical discoveries.
