With the Commander Gradient, watchmaking mechanics become visible thanks to a transparent acrylic dial – a first in this iconic collection. As such, the components of the Caliber 80 can be admired on the dial side as well as on the rear, thanks to a transparent case back. Adorned with an original gradated smoky effect, the dial becomes increasingly opaque around the edges while the date at 3 o’clock stands out perfectly against the aperture’s white background.

The Caliber 80 from Mido is a next-generation automatic watch movement which offers up to 80 hours of power reserve, twice as much as a regular calibre. It is also available as a chronometer that has been officially certified by the COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) for its superior accuracy.
The extremely technical process of Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) coats watch components in a strong, impurity-free film to ensure continued resistance to corrosion. This microscopically thin layer boosts the watch’s hardness and robustness while enhancing its elegant aesthetics in beautiful shades of black, pink gold or yellow gold. Its hypoallergenic properties increase its universal appeal and allow for a range of applications.
Mido’s sapphire crystal glass reveals its spectacular dials in sharp relief. They afford excellent readability in a range of conditions while perfectly complementing the watches' elegant design. Strong and shock-resistant, they are made to last, maintaining their exceptional transparency for many years.
