A partnership of extreme precision
Extreme precision, performance, and pure aesthetics: MIDO and Red Bull Cliff Diving were made for each other.
The watchmaking brand and the sporting event share the same passion and the same ambitions:
to surpass themselves and innovate continually to achieve perfection.
Since 2009, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series has provided a platform for aesthetic free-falls and dives of ever growing complexity, spotlighting the sport’s finest athletes as well as the most promising talents.
Each season, the sport's best athletes leap, twist and somersault from heights of up to 27m at speeds in excess of 85km/h with no protection, except their concentration, skill and physical control during seven demanding competitions around the world.
MIDO's Ocean Star Diver 600 epitomises the MIDO X Red Bull Cliff Diving partnership.
Superlative in every way, this extraordinary diving watch combines high precision and unfailing reliability.
Water-resistant up to a pressure of 60 bar, shock-resistant and perfectly legible even in the darkness of the sea depths, the Ocean Star Chronometer 600 is the diving watch par excellence!
Alessandro De Rose and Jonathan Paredes
– two great names in this breath taking discipline –
are joining Mido as Friends of the Brand.
Alessandro De Rose
Alessandro De Rose (IT) was just 21 years old when he appeared in his first Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series competition in 2013.
Exactly four years later, he took an overwhelming home victory in Polignano a Mare, Italy.
He is the only Italian athlete to have competed in the World Series to date.
Jonathan Paredes (MX) is without a doubt one of the most graceful and technically proficient divers on tour.
In 2011, Jonathan Paredes made his debut in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series. His progress since then has been staggering: overall 4th in 2013, 3rd in 2015 and 2nd in 2016 before becoming Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series champion in 2017.
