“Watches, Stories, and Gear” is a weekly roundup of some our favorite watch content from Worn & Wound, great stories from around the web, and cool gear that we’ve got our eye on.
This week’s installment is brought to you by Mido Watches.
Dive watches are great, and no collection is complete without at least one, but with so many being very aggressive or very large, they often are not the most versatile pieces. The Mido Ocean Star is an exception to this rule, mixing classic, mature styling with a contemporary but highly wearable size. Featuring its exclusive Caliber 80 Swiss-made ETA movement with 80 hours of power reserve, the Mido Ocean Star is one reasonably priced package.New for 2018, Mido has pushed into further refined territory with two pink gold PVD cased varieties. First is a version mixing a calming green dial and bezel with a leather strap. Paired with the pink gold case, the combination has a nostalgic quality that speaks to patina and the muted colors of the beach. Second is a classically handsome combination with a deep blue dial and bezel, fitted with a matching textile strap. The pink gold case sets off the blue dial, and has a true nautical appeal. Both watches are available for $970. Learn more here.
