To open the celebration of its 100th anniversary, Mido is launching the Commander Big Date: a series of innovative models fitted with the Caliber 80. This elegant automatic watch, which respects the original Commander Collection’s DNA, features a large date aperture at 6 o’clock, a feature generally produced by only high-end watchmaking brands. Its pure sunray satin-finished anthracite dial is revealed by a faceted and domed sapphire crystal. The indexes are coated with white Super-LumiNova®, as are the diamond-cut hour and minute hands, offering perfect night-time readability. This superb dial is protected by a round 42 mm-diameter case. To top it all off, as its name suggests, its high-performance movement gives it a power reserve of up to 80 hours. 100 years after its creation, the Swiss Made brand – whose name means I measure in Spanish (yo mido) – remains true to its values: timeless design, quality materials and technical innovation.
