Mido have an Ocean Star Special Edition watch coming out very soon!

The Ocean Star Tribute is a (sort of) retro inspired diver that uses some vintage design elements to create a new vintage-style Ocean Star.

Nothing has been officially released but here are a few basic specs. for the moment. The Ocean Star Tribute looks like a regular Ocean Star but for some tweaks.

It gets a 40.5mm Stainless steel case with 200m of water-resistance and divers bezel with (new) 50-min dive time scale (new) triangular 12hr marker with luminous pip.

The case is fitted with either: a vintage-style multi-link bracelet and / or a fabric strap in blue with white stitching or black with orange stitching.

The more vintage aspects of the watch however appear on the dial: minimal text, an orange lollipop sweep seconds hand, baton hands and markers and matchstick minutes.
