Mido Commander

61 years young and still up to date. The Mido Commander was first introduced and sold in 1959. Since then, it is impossible to imagine watch stores without it. It is sold in over 70 countries around the world. The distinctive straight-line divisions of the hours are said to be reminiscent of the famous Parisian landmark, the Eiffel Tower. The watch designer was in fact inspired by this venerable structure when he designed the Mido Commander. The largest watch cases in this line are 42.5 mm in diameter. However, narrower models are also available. All versions are water-resistant to 50 meters.

Different versions, but always unmistakably Commander

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the company in 2018, another version of the Mido Commander was released: the Mido Commander Big Date. Characteristic of this model - as the name suggests - is the particularly large date display at the height of 6 o'clock. In the other versions, such as the Shade, the Chronometer, the Icône or even the Chronograph, the date display is located at the height of 3 o'clock. As with all Mido models, the Mido Commander is always equipped with an automatic movement.

Swiss craftsmanship at a fair price

The Mido company was founded in Switzerland in 1918, making it one of the youngest watch manufacturers in Switzerland. Although Switzerland is a relatively long way from Spain, the name Mido comes from the Spanish and means something like "(I) measure". Meanwhile, the company belongs to the Swatch Group, the world's largest watch company. The intricately designed, detailed dials, the high-quality watch boxes that are always included, and the handcrafted leather straps (metal straps are also available as an option) represent just three of the many benefits of Mido watches. Due to the wide range of collections and different versions of the individual models, Mido is also well positioned in terms of price.
