Other: Arguably one of the most exciting releases of 2020, the Mido Ocean Star Decompression Timer 1961 with iconic "rainbow" dial is undeniably cool. Limited to only 1,961 pieces as a faithful homage to the original exotic Mido Powerwind Diver, it's no surprise that these sold out online rather quickly. This particular example was purchased brand new from the HODINKEE SHOP on the initial date of launch (July 17, 2020) with warranty card dated July 29, 2020. It remains in like-new condition with all of its original accessories and comes with an additional one-year warranty from HODINKEE (for a total of three years). This is THE perfect colorful summer dive watch! Justin talks about his original 1960s Mido Powerwind Diver in his feature episode of The Watch Table with Oak & Oscar.
