The Commander Shade watch is an animated variation of an original Commander model from the '70s. Its monocoque case, automatic watch movement, integrated Milanese mesh bracelet and acrylic glass marked with the Mido logo give this piece a retro look. The gradient two-tone satin-finished dial, specific to the Shade family, gives it its name and solar identity.

Automatic Watch Movements
Mido watch movements combine all of watchmaking tradition's strict criteria. The models of most of the collections are equipped with a transparent case back showing the mechanical and aesthetic beauty of the Swiss watch movements. Our timepieces are endowed with an oscillating weight decorated with Geneva Stripes and Mido logo, guilloché or circular-grained bridges, or blued screws. Mido also offers a series of chronometers whose conformity is certified by a neutral testing bureau that provides an official certification after rigorous testing. Each chronograph watch is unique and identified by an engraved number on the movement.
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.
Moving seamlessly with the motions of the wrist, Milanese mesh envelops the skin to give the unique feel of a leather strap, but crafted from sleek and sophisticated metal. Its distinctive mesh structure affords it superior breathability and a characteristic look that is extremely desired. First produced in the city of Milan in the 19th century, this material channels classic Italian elegance and a timeless aesthetic.
