Mido is enriching its Ocean Star diving watches collection with a version equipped with the highly practical GMT function. It clearly displays the time in two different time zones: home time and local time. On the back of the sporty Swiss watch – fitted with the Caliber 80 automatic movement, which offers a power reserve of up to 80 hours – Mido has engraved the time-zone indications. The extremely easy-to-use GMT function offers twice as much freedom for those who are either by the ocean or on an adrenaline-fuelled adventure.
