The faceted and domed sapphire gem ensures the dial, while a screw-down caseback with sapphire show window shows Mido’s improved programmed development. Numerous models inside Mido’s portfolio are enlivened by engineering and the Commander Big Date gives proper respect to the Eiffel Tower. It might appear to be an inquisitive association with the Parisian landmark, however its suffering life expectancy and conspicuous outline make it a notorious piece for Mido, much the same as the Paris tower.
Most Commander models sport a day/date window at 3 o’clock, however the new Commander Big Date line’s date complication is situated at 6 o’clock with two autonomous pivoting plates inside a cleaned outline. The sunray glossy silk completed dark dial has a larger than average “60” record applied at 12 o’clock, regarding the line’s 60th anniversary. Cleaned stick files mark the hours with white Super-LumiNova, while the jewel cut hour and moment hands additionally include lume embeds.
