Evo­lu­tion of Mido’s Com­man­der

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - CHRISTMAS SPECIAL -

FOR the renowned watchmaker Mido, the ex­tra­or­di­nary ar­chi­tec­ture of a mon­u­ment is syn­ony­mous with a mark of true de­sign, just like its Com­man­der.

The Com­man­der Chrono­graph is equipped with an au­to­matic move­ment and of­fers a dis­tinc­tive blend of steel and leather with a chic per­son­al­ity that is all its own.

Pro­tected by a faceted and domed sap­phire crys­tal, the sil­ver sun­ray sati­nated dial re­veals faceted ap­pliques rem­i­nis­cent of the lat­tice­work of the Eif­fel Tower, an ed­i­fice with a strong iden­tity sim­i­lar to that con­veyed by the Com­man­der at Mido, a col­lec­tion ap­pre­ci­ated since its cre­ation in 1959.

Both a sym­bol and mon­u­ment of Paris, the Eif­fel Tower stands out be­cause of its tech­ni­cal and ar­chi­tec­tural per­fec­tion.

Evolv­ing with the times, it has forged a pow­er­ful iden­tity over the decades, just like the Com­man­der, which beau­ti­fully evokes this bold and leg­endary con­struc­tion.

This new chrono­graph is equipped with an au­to­matic move­ment with top fin­ish­ing and is fit­ted with a trans­par­ent case back en­abling the finely dec­o­rated au­to­matic move­ment to be ad­mired.

With a di­am­e­ter of 42.50mm and wa­ter-re­sis­tant up to a pres­sure of 5 bar (50m), the Com­man­der Chrono­graph will ap­peal to ev­ery man who ad­mires fine watch­mak­ing and ap­pre­ci­ates Swiss tra­di­tion and ex­per­tise.

The Com­man­der has been given a new look, but re­tains the strong char­ac­ter so em­blem­atic of the col­lec­tion.

The satin stain­less steel case and pol­ished bezel, treated with rose PVD, en­cir­cle a dial with a sil­ver sun­ray sati­nated fin­ish.

A faceted and domed sap­phire crys­tal pro­tects the dial, which is adorned with three snailed an­thracite coun­ters that lend the model a fine mas­culin­ity.

The hands are golden-rose. The hour and minute hands are treated with white Su­per­Lu­mi­Nova, as are the faceted golden-rose ap­pliques, for easy read­abil­ity at night.

The Com­man­der Chrono­graph is fit­ted with an an­thracite leather strap.

It is also avail­able in a full steel ver­sion with a sil­ver dial and sil­ver or an­thracite coun­ters or an an­thracite dial with sil­ver coun­ters and a black leather strap.

The Com­man­der Chronome­ter Lim­ited Edi­tion, on the other hand, has a black leather strap with fold­ing clasp. It comes in a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion box cre­ated ex­clu­sively for the oc­ca­sion.

The hints of red on the tachome­ter num­bers, the words “Lim­ited Edi­tion” and the cen­tral sec­onds counter hand lend a unique touch to this model.

The Com­man­der Leather is fit­ted with a brown leather strap. It is also avail­able with an an­thracite sun­ray sati­nated dial and black leather strap or with a rose PVD-treated steel case, an­thracite sun­ray sati­nated dial and an­thracite leather strap.

For ladies, The Com­man­der Lady Moth­erof-Pearl is fit­ted with a black semi-lac­quered leather strap.

It is also avail­able with a rose PVD-treated steel case and sil­ver sun­ray sati­nated dial.

Three ad­di­tional full steel ver­sions, with rose or yel­low-gold PVD treat­ment and sun­ray sati­nated dial are also avail­able.

Since 1918 Mido has been per­fect­ing the mark of true de­sign: by be­ing time­less.

Its phi­los­o­phy is to com­bine time­less de­sign with func­tion­al­ity rather than fol­low­ing fash­ion trends.

Its ob­jec­tive is to cre­ate time­pieces that are of high qual­ity and en­dowed with pre­cise move­ments and of­fer­ing out­stand­ing wa­ter-re­sis­tance in or­der to last a long time.
