The Watch

In 1954 Mido introduced the Powerwind Automatic which reduced the winding components from 17 to 7 a true feat of engineering. The bi-directional rotor ment less movement was needed to charge the power reserve of  41 hours, it also can be hand wound.This example has the original Radium hands, surrounded by 12,3,6,9 numerals and index pips of the same Radium. By 1955 Mido had stopped using Radium for luminescence, as did most brands.

The 34mm Stainless Steel case and screw case back add durability with the dial protected by an acrylic crystal. The case is in unpolished condition and is as original as it gets.

Points of Mention

This watch is sold as watch only and therefore comes with no original Mido box or original Mido paperwork. The watch dates to 1954 and is in vintage condition, marks visible and patina developing to the dial. The watch has an unknown service history but the movement is clean and the watch is running well.

Personal Note

When I saw this watch I had to have it, I honestly had no idea at that moment about how awesome the movement inside actually was. I was purely drawn to the watch aesthetically, little did I know it ticks MANY boxes beyond that. This will suit the seasoned collector or a complete newbie to vintage perfectly.
