Mido on Monday - Commander Shade

Courtesy of Mido
This is one that I have gone back and forth on.  It is a pretty large departure for the "traditional" Commander.  In this iteration, the big change is a  black PVD stainless steel case and bracelet.  

I like the fact that for this version, Mido reverted back to a solid (i.e. non-display) case back.

And in all honest?  I personally feel that is a better choice.  The Commander was designed and "built" on the notion that it was solid, durable, water and dust and other "cooties" were not going to get into it.  It would (and did) run pretty much forever.  

While it might not be for everyone, I personally dig it.
