The Caliber 80 Chronometer

Regular readers will know that I am a Mido fan.  My niece was in town yesterday and I passed on my father's Mido (that he had been given the day before I was born) to her as she is now 29 - the same age I was when he passed it on to me.

So the Mido Ocean Star (Henderson Limited Edition) is safe and sound with its next owner, and I am for the first time in 17 years, "Mido-less".

So the timing of this Mido press release in my in-box seems rather auspicious ; )
This is the Mido Commander Caliber 80 Chronometer.
