Dive into the Sixties

The Ocean Star Decompression Timer 1961 reproduces the irresistible vintage charm of the Ocean Star Skin Diver Watch, a popular 1960s Mido model that remains one of the brand’s most sought-after original timepieces to date.

Dedicated to the underwater world, this watch also served as a precious diving tool thanks to the multicoloured display of decompression stops on the dial. The version paying tribute to it today is limited to 1,961 pieces, in reference to the year the original model was released.

It uses the best of current technology to revive the striking codes of the time, namely a rotating bezel with countdown timer and a coloured table beneath a ‘glassbox’-style sapphire crystal. The Ocean Star Decompression Timer 1961 is driven by the excellent Caliber 80, which offers a power reserve of up to 80 hours,

Each model comes in a special box with three easily interchangeable strap options to vary the ways in which this extraordinary creation can be worn.
