About this deal

Around the back, the Ocean Star GMT Limited Edition For Hodinkee has a steel caseback with a special engraving showing the specific number of the 999-piece edition. Dare I say the Mido offers more here, with a 0-60 uni-directional bezel to add a further complication of minute timing. This phenomenal movement crafted by Mido allows the crown of this watch to set the primary hour hand instead of the GMT hand with one-hour increments, usually seen in "purist" GMT watches and highly regarded by most watch enthusiasts. Have visited Monrovia a few times a long time ago, but have stronger memories from Sierra Leone and Guinea + Guinea Bissau.

Whatever the mission, precision timing counts” In honour of British Watchmaker’s Day, taking place on 9th March in Westminster, London, Elliot Brown are celebrating their attendance with the creation of an extremely limited-edition twist on. I haven't had it on any NATO's yet but with the summer coming and the cool color way I think it will look great on most anything. The repeated squares and rectangles all over the design give it a very coherent, clean, modern and functional appearance. It not only makes setting and reading the local time quicker, but the jumping 12-hour hand will also keep the date correct for the time zone you’re in. Hours, minutes and seconds of the time, displayed on a 12-hr dial exactly as almost every other watch out there.The hour and minute hands have a semi-skeletonised format, a distinctive feature of many Mido Ocean Star watches. Everything else identical, I prefer rectangular to dots spaced from the rehaut, it’s about legibility. Sometimes you’re on the move for work, waking up jetlagged, a long way from home, and unsure what time it is back at the office. It is not framed at all and with a perfectly matched date dail it total blends into the face of the watch.

The earlier edition of Mido Ocean Star GMT (2020) had a date window with a date disc in tune with the dial’s black colour to minimise the intrusion. thick, not that bad if you consider that the Ocean Star GMT is a dive watch and it contains a date and GMT complications. Strong and shock-resistant, they are made to last, maintaining their exceptional transparency for many years. If you’re a “function over everything” kind of person, then this Mido Ocean Star GMT is hard to dismiss. Bang for buck, this is a great True GMT with nice lume, date, micro adjustment bracelet makes this a breeze to adjust during the day.The Mido brand offers mainly mechanical models, so fans of traditional, honest watchmaking will find it in particular. The combination of a diving bezel and a two-tone 24-hour scale on the outside of the dial also brings a lot of visual highlights. This dive watch is protected with a flat sapphire crystal which has anti-reflective treatment on both sides that not only offers great legibility under any lighting conditions but also complements the timepiece’s elegant design.

This strap features flawless white stitching at its lugs and is fitted with a Mido signed tang buckle finished with a shiny full polish.A good example is the new Seiko 5 Sports GMT, which has precisely this kind of “office GMT” movement. If you’re not afraid of color and a little serving of “Pepsi”, the special edition in red and blue with an extra NATO strap in the same colors might be the one for you. The metal’s many technical properties are complemented by its sleek, extremely pleasing aesthetics, enabling a wide range of uses.

I would prefer to see the same design here, but the white disc is fine, too, acting as a counterweight to the marker at 9 o’clock. Admire the intricate time zone engravings on the case back and unique serial number that sets each watch apart. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Ceramic is time-resistant, hypoallergenic and resistant to high temperatures, friction and abrasion. With the Mido Ocean Star GMT Limited Edition For Hodinkee, the classic Mido mix of elegance and sporty styling is met with versatile proportions and a movement designed to jump from one time zone to the next.I believe this may in part be due to the fact that I didn’t try one of the colourways review here, but instead the black/blue version. The lume quality seems good too, with a strong glow as you transition from light into dark, and long-lasting readability. Like any seasoned traveler, the ideal travel watch has to be flexible and thickskinned, versatile, and always precise. For that, watches known as “office GMTs” are more practical because they allow you to independently set only the GMT hand instead of the local time hand.
