Mido Commander Caliber 80 Chronometer Watch

Mido Commander Caliber 80 Chronometer Watch

Epitomising Mido’s watchmaking expertise since 1959, the Commander collection now welcomes the Caliber 80 Chronometer, a new high-precision model equipped with a state-of-the-art chronometer movement. Developed according to the high standards laid down by Mido, this automatic movement now offers double the previous autonomy, with a generous 80-hour power reserve.

It is also certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, the highest watch industry benchmark in terms of precision and reliability. The new Commander Caliber 80 chronometer expresses perfect harmony between modernity and tradition: the best of horological innovation, combined with a timeless design that has been as appealing as ever for more than half a century, since the Commander has been continuously produced by Mido since 1959. A rare degree of success that makes it an authentic icon.
