Celebrating 50 Years of MIDO Commander Edition

MIDO is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Commander watch with 3 limited edition ($50-$500) timepieces.

The first Commander watch came out in 1959 and has since made an impact in worldly markets (especially Europe and Asia).

The elegant collection keeps to the retro with thin bands, a chronometer and a date feature. The solid casing has no removable caseback, which is fitting with the once popular 1950’s watches.

These gold pieces are a lovely step back into the MIDO Commander history.
