Let’s begin with the refined blue face that is sparse and elegant, with applied baton hour markers, a date aperture at three o’clock position, and the words ‘Mido Automatic’ above the three hands and ‘Commander Lady’ below them. (The word ‘Lady’ is, of course, rendered in script to convey gracefulness. The ample clearing makes for easier time telling.
There’s so much to admire and discover in the Mido Commander Lady. Frankly feminine, it has a handful of straightforward visible elements plus a few others that are hidden from view.
Meanwhile, the stick minute indicators engirt the hour markers and anticipate the circumference of the round case – a pleasant interplay of the obvious and the obscure. In many cases, the minute and hour tracks are integrated in one circular sweep. The integrated crown rests discreetly on one side of the dial further enhancing the graduated sweep of links of the stainless steel bracelet with a folding clasp. The entire piece is slim, weighs a wispy 91 grams, yet somehow able to convey strength.
Model M021.207.11.041.00 runs on an Mido Automatic ETA movement with a date function and a power reserve of up to 72 hours. It is water resistant to 50 metres, and carries a two-year international warranty.
