If you're looking for a watch that isn't like every other watch out there, you might want to consider looking more at Mido watches. If you haven't heard of the brand before, you really don't know what you're missing out on. These are watches that are extremely well-made, and they're classy at the same time. At a time when it seems like most people are trying to make watches that are as big as possible in order to make a statement, these watches are more likely to make you think back to a time when things were not quite so ostentatious. Make no mistake about it, these watches don't like a thing when it comes to class. In fact, they're so well made and they look so great to boot that they don't need to use things like size in order to get the attention of others. If you want to know more about this unique company, read about five of their most impressive products below.
Mido Commander II Automatic Silver Dial Men’s Watch
This watch is absolutely breathtaking in its simplicity. The whole thing is silver in color, but where the stainless steel case meets the silver wristband you immediately start to notice a difference. As opposed to the typical style for most metal wristbands, this one incorporates more of a chainmail style. That makes the entire watch look different and it sets the whole thing into a class of its own. As you might have already guessed from the name of the watch, the dial is also silver. There's just enough contrast between the face of the dial and the hands on the watch to clearly be able to see the time and the date. If you want a watch that stands out, yet manages to draw attention for all the right reasons, this is one that is worth another look.
Mido Baroncelli III Automatic Men’s Watch
This is one of the larger watches in the product line for this particular company, yet it's nowhere nearly as big as many of the others that are being offered by other watch manufacturers. Instead, it focuses on setting itself apart because of quality. This is a watch that displays things like taste, class and some might even say high society. It features a black leather band with a stainless steel clasp and case. The face of the dial is white and the hands and tick marks are silver. This is the type of watch that you would really expect to see on the wrist of a successful CEO, a doctor, or maybe even one of the most successful entrepreneurs of all time.
Mido Multifort Chronograph Black Dial Men’s Watch
If you're looking for a sportier option, this is the perfect way to go. The watch has a red rubberized wristband which really stands out against the black case and dial. You can easily track seconds and even keep up with 24 hour time, thanks to the subsets. Furthermore, the white hands and tick marks make it exceptionally easy to read, even when you don't have much light. The watch can even be used as a stopwatch. As you can see, this is the perfect option for a weekend getaway or for someone who is commonly involved in some type of sporting event.
Mido Multifort Automatic Silver Dial Unisex Watch
For the ladies that are interested in owning a Mido watch, this provides the perfect opportunity to do exactly that. This watch works well for either gender because it isn't overly masculine, but it certainly isn't feminine, either. Instead, it's the perfect blend that allows it to look great on the wrist of any individual, no matter what their gender or the circumstances. The watch is a beautiful silver color, with a stainless steel case and wristband. It has a white face on the dial with silver tick marks and hands so it's easy to see. It also displays the date. As is the case with every other watch that's been discussed so far, it doesn't have to be wound up so you don't have to worry about forgetting to do that and then having the wrong time displayed all day long.
Mido Commander I Automatic Unisex Watch
If you really want the ultimate level of luxury, this is a watch that deserves your attention. The wristband is made out of a brilliant gold colored chainmail and matches perfectly with the case that is the same color. In fact, the entire watch is gold. You can even expect to see the color on the face, and just like some other watches made by the company, it incorporates just enough contrast to be able to see the time and date with ease.
