Mido’s helmsman series watches combine the four major advantages of self-winding, water resistance, anti-magnetic and shock resistance. Reliable and strong travel time and the classic appearance that can withstand the test of the times, the helmsman series is regarded as high-quality and rigorous when it is released Synonymous and has become one of today’s best-selling watches.
316L stainless steel case with gold plating
The 316L stainless steel case with a diameter of 44 mm is gold-plated and uses PVD (Vacuum Ion Plating) surface treatment technology, which not only gives the watch an attractive appearance but also its robustness can effectively prevent scratches and corrosion. The silver vertical striped dial, chronograph, small seconds and date display windows are neatly arranged and look very regular. It can be said to be a medium-sized watch.
Gold-plated screw-down crown
316L stainless steel screw-in gear gold-plated crown with beautiful English logo printed on the crown. Above the crown is the timing start button, which controls the start and stop of timing, and below it is the timing reset button. Provides 100 meters of water resistance.
Dark brown leather strap
Dark brown leather strap, fine workmanship, clear texture, creamy stitching at the edges. Dark brown leather with a gold case is more solemn and elegant.
The sides look very layered
The thickness of the side case is moderate, and the case is brushed to give it a more textured feel, and it can also cover the scratches generated in daily wear. The bezel is finely polished and the sides look very layered.
The buckle uses a folding 316L stainless steel buckle, and also uses a vacuum ion plating surface treatment, which is easy to wear. After polishing, the buckle is engraved with the English logo of Mido.
Lugs are naturally curved
The lugs are not long, they look short, the radians are natural, and the edges are rounded and look exquisite. It is also comfortable to wear on the wrist.
Neatly arranged dials
Sapphire crystal, silver vertical stripe dial printed on the track minute scale 5 minutes mark. Hours 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock are inlaid with scales, and other o’clock positions are black dots. I personally don’t like this combination of various graphic styles. The three small dials are arranged neatly, the small seconds at 9 o’clock, the hour counter at 6 o’clock, and the 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock. In the center are the minute and hour hands with fluorescent markers, and the black chronograph seconds hand. 3 o’clock with calendar and day window. Personally, it would be better if the color of the small second hand and the color of the chronograph second hand are different from those of the chronograph minute and hour hands.
Caliber MIDO 1320 based on ETA 7750
Wear-resistant sapphire case back, at a glance the exquisite movement. It is equipped with ETA 7750-based MIDO 1320 movement, with a thickness of 7.9 mm, a total of 165 components, 25 gems, a vibration frequency of 28,800 oscillations per hour, an Incabloc shockproof device, and a beautiful English logo engraved on the rotor. Accurate and stable when walking.
To sum up: This Mido watch is generally quite satisfactory. The chronograph function and date display function are more practical. The case with gold-plated technology makes the entire watch look more expensive and easy to accept. The ETA modified movement also ensures accurate and stable travel time. It is very suitable for wearing in daily work, and it is more decent with formal wear.
