Mido Ocean Star Decompression Timer 1961 Limited Edition. Brand New
Brand-new, never worn, limited edition watch bought directly from Hodinkee. Following the resounding success of its first reissue of the 1961 Ocean Star Skin Diver Watch in 2020, Mido is presenting a new, eagerly awaited version of its Ocean Star Decompression Timer 1961. With a polished 40.5 mm case, a multicoloured scale of decompression stops, a'glassbox'-style sapphire crystal and a rotating bezel, the striking codes of the era are brought back to life. The dial of the new Ocean Star Decompression Timer 1961 is even closer to the original, revealing silvered white tones with a turquoise bezel for an irresistible and refreshing vintage look. The screwed crown and case back further enhance the durability of the watch, which is water-resistant up to 200 metres (20 bar/660 ft), while the Caliber 80 gives it an exceptional autonomy of up to 80 hours.
Presented in a special box, each of the 1,961 timepieces comes with three elegant straps: a versatile braided steel bracelet, a more classic patinated leather strap and a sporty turquoise fabric strap adorned with stitching in the colours of the table. A spur system allows for quick and easy strap changes.
With the Mido Ocean Star Decompression Timer 1961, enthusiasts and collectors can dive into the exhilarating spirit of the first sports dives of the Sixties.
