MIDO, Swiss Made

MIDO became famous with their very clever water tank used to display their water proof watches. MIDO used a patented system with a cork seal to achieve an astonishing water resistance. Also the case is basically one piece, that means the watches are so called "front loaders". During a service the watchmaker will lift out the crystal and access the watch movement through the front. This construction guarantees for a great water resistance.
At the same time "King of Water Proof Watches" was the slogan MIDO used to advertise their watches.
In the 90ies MIDO obviously hired good design talent. Suddenly they great looking models. Overhauled their classic designs of the Multiport and other models. The new designers managed to bridge the gap in the 80ies where MIDO did not do too well.
PMWC is again proud to offer "New Old Stock" MIDOs from the brand's heydays in the 70ies!

White

One of the first really water resistant watches from "The King of Water Proof Watches" as the MIDO slogan read in the 70ies. Fish tanks were put up in the shops to display these watches and to demonstrate their water resistance!

Non-screwed crown with cork seal together with a one piece case make the 100 m Water Resistance rating possible. The watch is a so called front loader, you will remove the movement by removing the crystal. Original MIDO openers to do this yourself eventually, are often on sale on Ebay for very little money.
