Urban style shows fashion personality
The case is made of stainless steel. After mercerizing and PVD rose gold plating, the overall design adds a retro texture to the man. With a diameter of 42.5 mm and a blue polished aluminum unidirectional rotating bezel, its rose gold and blue form a strong color contrast. The beauty of color difference highlights the extraordinaryness of the watch design. The slightly curved lugs make the watch fit closer to the wrist and enhance wearing comfort.
The round dial is treated with a deep blue sandblasting process, reflecting the blue sea into the dial, showing a rich sense of layering, allowing the wearer to feel the charm of the ocean from the watch. The hour markers are three-dimensional rectangular bars with a fluorescent coating, while the hands are polished and PVD-coated with rose gold, the top is covered with a luminous coating, and the middle is hollow. The dot at 12 o’clock on the bezel serves as a standard mark, and the interior is filled with luminous material, which is convenient for the wearer to read clearly when diving. At 3 o’clock on the dial, there is a date and day display window, which adds practicality to the simple and clear dial.

The ‘MIDO’ brand logo is engraved on the surface, and the surrounding is designed with non-slip texture, which is convenient for the wearer to accurately time.
The strap is made of fabric material, and the color selection is blue. The dial is designed with blue as a whole, which reminds people of the cable, just like the call from the nautical world and the sea. The color texture design is very fashionable and extremely individual. The blue strap with stainless steel pin buckle is also polished by mercerization and PVD rose gold plating, which echoes the case. The overall design of rose gold and blue highlights the young and dynamic atmosphere.
